As I sort through all I have to share, I will continue with my Christmas Idea series. One thing I am thankful for this year is Pinterest - such a great tool for organizing ideas that are image based. My Pinterest boards inspire me so. Today is a collection of reindeer ideas......
This first one was made by my dad and I have posted about him before here. Crafted from found fallen birch trees I love his rustic character standing guard in my yard.
This same concept has been crafted in many sizes and shapes to create reindeer of all different personalities. Here are a few by others.
This first one would be easier to craft because it is a much smaller version of the one above. A family of these would look great on a mantle.

Here is another tiny set but with added greens.
I love the personality of this guy. There is a wonderful tutorial if you follow the link to Pretty Ditty.

Save your holiday corks and craft these guys for next year.
And two totally whimsical ideas.....
