In the December issue of Downhome, Kim Kielley provides instructions on how to build a beautiful Victorian-style reindeer, perfect for decorating your home during the Christmas season. If you feel inspired to create your own "puzzle-piece" reindeer, you may create your own pattern, or here is the same pattern that was used to create the wooden reindeer you'll find in the magazine.
Print this PDF and cut out each piece of the reindeer. Then, trace the pattern onto plywood - and away you go! This crafty project is a lot of fun, and results in a gorgeous decoration that will adorn your home at Christmastime for years to come.
Send us your photos of your own completed reindeer for a chance to appear in an upcoming issue of Downhome.
