DIY Reindeer Christmas Decorations
This post is a tutorial for some lovely DIY Reindeer Christmas Decorations. Tis the season to be jolly, or it’s getting close to that season anyway! The holidays are a perfect time for crafting and this year, you don’t have to go out and spend a lot of money on all those cute but expensive decorations. With all the talk about supply issues lately, crafting our holiday decor and gifts may be our best bet! So probably a good idea to get started earlier than usual to get it all done in time. This is an easy diy project that will surely put you in the holiday spirit and doesn’t require a lot of supplies to make. These aren’t really cutesy holiday Reindeers … they are more natural looking and would look great with Christmas Decor that is more rustic or nature themed. I hope you enjoy this project!
You can decide if you want to hang these on your wall or on your Christmas tree. They work equally well either way, I would just say if you are putting them in your tree they would work best on a larger size tree because of their scale. They are most likely too big to place on a tiny table top size Christmas tree.

(I thought you might like this printable of the original print as well, that way you have the option of framing it with a traditional frame if you prefer)
Supplies for DIY Reindeer Christmas Decorations
1) 7.5″ Wooden Embroidery Hoops
2) Plain fabric ( I used Canvas Drop Cloth)
3) Inkjet Home Printer
5) Full Sheet Printable Labels
Here’s the before photo. Just some super simple and super cheap frames, or rather embroidery hoops! I used two 7.5″ wooden hoops. In fact I just reused the ones from last time, I figured I can just change them out for different seasons!
You may recall when I did a similar project for Halloween. Just like last time I printed out the images onto fabric (I used canvas drop cloth fabric), using my printer and the label method. If you need instructions you can go HERE, and follow the same directions that I provided for the previous project.
So fun! I hope you liked this project and these lovely early Reindeer images! I absolutely love those long crazy horns on that Reindeer on the lower half of the photo!
Have fun making your own DIY Reindeer Decorations. Of course you really good use any Holiday motif that you like and customize this project to your own decor!
Love it! We used it as a coloring(paint) page. It came out really nicely.

You might consider freezer paper as a cheaper alternative to labels- you simply iron it onto the fabric and peel it off after printing. 🙂
Your post are very creativities indeed. Two thumbs up.
Those deer are just wonderful. I can’t get over the antlers on the one deer. They look like they are so heavy they would take his head down.
Thanks so much for sharing such great graphics!
