Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:few hours + dry time

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Print template on cardstock in the quantities specified and cut out. Pin them to the foam sheet, spaced about ¼”" apart.
  • 2
    Following the package instructions, carefully use the StyroCutter Plus to cut out the number of pieces indicated on the patterns to create all three deer. Be sure to keep the blade of the cutter at a 90 degree angle to the top surface of the foam for a straight even edge. Use a scrap piece of foam as a sanding block to lightly smooth any uneven edges.
  • 3
    Assemble the deer and secure with glue. Brush the deer with a coat of tacky glue and sprinkle with Diamond Dust while wet to completely cover and let dry.
  • 4
    Paint the feet of all three deer Pure Gold to create the hooves. Tie a small length of ribbon around the necks of each deer. Remove the pine sprigs from the picks with the wire cutters and embellish the neck of each reindeer with these sprigs.
