How to Make Rustic DIY Reindeer Garland
Start by cutting nine 4-inch triangles out of burlap. I liked the frayed look of the burlap but if you want to minimize fraying, paint a little Mod Podge along the edges of your burlap on the reverse side of your reindeer triangle. The Mod Podge goes on white but will dry clear.
Feed twigs through the burlap as shown for antlers and hot glue the eyes (brown felt circles and buttons) over the twigs which will be sticking out the front. Finish with a nose for each.
To hang them, grab nine wooden clothespins. Cut and glue the name tags to the front of each clothes pins. Clip the burlap reindeer to a string or twine by the clothes pins.
