Here they are in the garage getting ready to be spray painted. Not too bad . . . just not what I wanted.
After a few coats of paint, a red ribbon and some holly from my yard and I now have two reindeer that I love!
You're probably thinking that there is no way you are going to find these darling reindeer in your thrift store. You might be right, but take a chance and go look and see what you can find . . . maybe you'll find some awesome snowman, santa, sleigh etc. . . that could use a little make-over.
If you really want some reindeer I've hear that some craft stores sell items like this or I did find some online that look almost identical . . . go HERE.
Happy thrifting everyone!
