Embroidery Hoop Rudolph Ornament

I first shared this ornament over at Positively Splendid.  I thought I would post it here this week just in case y’all missed it.  Plus it goes perfectly with my kid’s craft series this week.  If y’all missed them, I have already posted some bottle cap reindeer and a pom pom tree.  Now lets get started on my embroidery hoop Rudolph ornament.    

He is too cute right?  I used a 3 inch embroidery hoop and some jute twine.

I wrapped the embroidery hoop tightly with the jute twine.  I did a double layer of the twine on the entire hoop.

Now let’s make his head.  I used my Silhouette to cut out a deer silhouette I found from scrapbook paper.  You could absolutely print one and use scissors to cut this out.

I actually did not like how big those antlers were so I gave him a hair cut.

I then added two googly eyes with hot glue.  I used the tip of my paint brush to make a red sparkly nose.

Now onto his feet.  I just used a rectangle of scrapbook paper.

I then just cut the legs until they looked right.

I cut away the top portion so it would be hidden after I added to the hoop.  Then I used a Sharpie to add a few hooves.

Then just glue your head onto the area where the screw is on the hoop.  I added another piece of twine to use for hanging on the tree.

I then hot glued on those feet.

He is ready to hang on the tree.  This one is super simple and I am sure the kids would love to help make him.  Break out your craft supplies and spend some time with the kids this week.
