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.

    Am going to make the adorable Rudolph hoop ornament, will be such a cute gift to give. Might have our youngest grand daughter come over to help me. She might like to make some ornaments herself to give. She’s only one of 6 grandkids that’s interested in making crafts. These really are so cute, fairly quick, easy and inexpensive, all important features for making things. Happy weekend Angie. Pinning this ornament
