So now that summer and beautiful weather has arrived, lets have;
because when it's hot outside
having my yard turn into a giant sno-cone doesn't seem all that bad.
|Uncle Tony's Mini Deer Ornament|
Over the years we have made lots of Rudolphs, and every one looks different. The newest ones were made for each of the Grand kids with their names.
No I do not have a grandson named Rudolph.
Our original deer had big wiggly eyes, but those didn't hold up so well in winter, and neither did their faux white fur tails. And more than a few red noses have smashed to the ground.
Now we make most of their body parts out of wood.
Brawns in charge of the main body, tails and ears, I do eyes, antlers, legs and finishing touches.
They get a coat of glitter so they sparkle in the snow and some get jute with bells, some get scarves.
The scarf on this deer was an old knit hat with pom poms that I cut up.
Antlers are usually better looking,
but there are mosquitoes out in antler making country right now.
The deer Uncle Tony made had noses that would light up.
Ours do not.
The Christmas in July party starts on Monday the 15th, so I hope you'll stop back in and link up something festive with Angie, Betsy and I. Till then, stop over and see what Angie at Knick Of Time and Betsy at My Salvaged Treasure have created. I'll give you a hint.... I am pinning both and making both in December.
As for my Christmas in July Reindeer, it will go live at our oldest son's home in December.
