I gave you all a sneak peek at this project yesterday and I just finished it last night. I was inspired by the below glitter reindeer canvas art that I've seen all over Pinterest. While I really like the look of the glitter version (I'm slowly turning everything in our house gold), I'm not too fond of crafting with glitter. We have a few glitter decorations for the holidays and it just ends up with giltter all over our floor, table, etc. I wanted to use the same idea of a reindeer silhouette, but decided to paint instead of glitter, and use a piece of wood instead of a canvas.
I bought the piece of wood (approx 11"x11") from a local craft store and used some old stain I have leftover from several other projects. The reindeer shape was found online and I just cut it out to trace onto the stained wood. A little white craft to paint inside the outline and my reindeer was ready.
I liked how the silhouette looked on the wood, but when I finished I thought it still needed something. I freehand wrote some script 'Noel' above the picture and added a little decorative 'garland' at the bottom.
I linked this craft up to the Clever Chicks Blog Hop!
