Log Reindeer, Xmas crafting for the boys


Log reindeer inspired by Better Homes and Gardens. Just cut to size, drill holes and insert twigs. Such a cute threesome on my horse poo mulberry/zuchinni patch. A great father and son bonding exercise. They also suggest a mini version using corks which we have none of, so middle Bowerbird improvised and used some toilet paper rolls.


  1. How cute are they?! And how lovely and green your yard is, ours is starting to look very dry and parched in spots. You are obviously getting much more rain than us.

  2. I love these. What a wonderful christmas decoration.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. These are wonderful! I'm a bit surprised that the sticks hold up that big piece of wood! I have a collection of corks, so I will be trying this with my little one, the wee version. ;)

  4. Log reindeer look very cute standing tall and proud - so clever! Love it!

  5. The wood is pine, so quite light Sunny Smiles.

    So much rain Michelle, lots of mowing.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone.

  6. LOVE the reindeer!!! :) What a fantastic craft for my son - I am imagining him putting together an entire herd, lol!
