Sweet and Simple

Love that rustic look? Here's an easy and low-cost way to bring that look into your holiday decor.

Tools and Materials

To make a reindeer artwork, you’ll need to download and print the reindeer stencil; three pieces of reclaimed/pallet wood nailed together, pencil, scissors, white paint, foam paintbrush and a narrow paintbrush.

Print and Cut Pattern

Cut out pattern pieces and tape together. Trace the reindeer shape onto the wood planks using a pencil. Fill in the shape with white paint.

Show it Off

Allow the paint to fully dry and then display. 

To complete the rustic elegant look, get the step-by-step instructions to make the bay leaf garland and then get the template to make the "happy holidays" banner
