DIY Homemade Reindeer Christmas Tree Decoration - Mollie Makes

Mollie Makes Felt Reindeer DIY Christmas Decoration

Christmas time honestly brings out the little festive elf in me who loves to get creative. I start buying up art supplies like there's no tomorrow. From glitter paper to metallic yarn, if it's crafty it's going in my basket.

So when I popped into the shops and saw Issue 86 of Mollie Makes sat on the shelf, I had to pick it up and get crafting! In this particular issue, the free gift was a 'make your own reindeer tree decoration kit', and since my sewing was a little rusty I figured I'd dust off my sewing box and give it a go.

With all the felt and threads ready to go inside, it was only a matter of cutting out the pattern and piecing it together bit by bit - perfect for beginners, or even the most advanced of sewing goddesses looking to create a cute tree decoration this year.

Though my end result may not be perfect, I really enjoyed putting him together - with Netflix on in the background and a hot drink it was the perfect evening!

What I love most about the reindeer is how he's inspired me to consider non-traditional festive hues. You don't have to be conventional and stick with reds and greens, there's a whole spectrum of colour out there to get creative with - the combination of pink, orange and turquoise is perfect for banishing those British grey skies outside!

I'll definitely be giving some of the other craft ideas inside the magazine a go too, I've got my heart set on making some Christmas cards this year, and there's some inspiring content inside!

Until next time..
