Reindeer Tutorial

I have been wanting to do another tutorial for a while.

Here is how to make this cute little reindeer photo holder.


You will need:
Wire (I use 20 guage)
Chocolate Brown Clay
Black Clay
Red Clay
White Clay (for eyes, you can also use seed beads or marker or just black clay for these, too)
I use liquid clay between all of the joints for a better bond, but it is not necessary.

LOL, I noticed after I baked him that one of the hoofs lines were not in the front.  Oops.

**Please note this tutorial is for personal use.  If you make it & blog about it, I would love the linky love.**


I entered 6 ornaments and they picked the ornament pictured here to be in the running to become this weeks winner in the Better Homes and Gardens Ornament Contest!  Please go and vote for me.  You can vote daily.  =)

Wow. You make that look so easy! That is one really cute reindeer. Can kids do this too? I'm thinking my girls might like to make this. Can you find the clay at any craft store? TIA!
