This wonderful reindeer can be constructed easily by using Armature Wire and Wool Tops. The form can then be embellished with bells, ribbon and tinsel stems.
Step 1. Create a framework (armature) for the reindeer using a combination of the thin and the thick Armature Wires. Thick wire is more suitable for the legs and thin wire is more suitable for body and ears. (Refer to diagram) Step 2. Bend Tinsel Stems into the shape of antlers and secure them to the wire frame. Step 3. Apply Supertac to a small area of the frame and wrap Merino Wool Tops around that section. Continue to build small sections at a time with Supertac and Merino Wool Tops until the reindeer is formed. Step 4. Thread Satin Ribbon through the loop of a Folley Bell and tie the ribbon around the neck of the reindeer.
