I can’t really be certain as to where the idea for these Reindeer Plates came from. I’ve experimented with spray painting toy animals before and have always enjoyed taking a very simple project and turning it into quite stunning results, not to mention the possibilities for DIYs being boundless. It’s safe to say that working with these little critters are by far my favorite types of crafts. These plates are no exception.
With Christmas being only a few weeks away, I strove to come up with a DIY that would either work wonderfully for your own family, as a gift for that particular female someone who seems to have it all, or both! They can also be completed in well under an hour. Half of that, to be exact.
This is what you’ll need for your Reindeer Plates:
paint (spray or acrylic)
Lay out the supplies.
Coat the reindeer in as many coats needed for full coverage. If you prefer a shabby chic look, use a lesser number of coats.
Once the reindeer are dry, add crazy glue to the bottoms of their hooves.
Stick the reindeer to the plates, and let dry once again.
So, put a pile of cookies on a Reindeer Plate and leave it out for Santa, or set one out as a serving tray at a dinner party, or astonish a loved one with very unique and usable gift. Whatever the case may be, this Christmas DIY is one that will please everybody. Who knows, maybe Santa will be extra good to us this year as a reward for all of our (not so) hard work.
