How to Make a Reindeer Silhouette - this is so cute!


You know I love bling and Glitter Mod Podge ranks high on my list of favorite things – right up there with carbs, margaritas and thrift shops.

I’m also loving all things deer this year including antlers.

And who doesn’t love reindeer?

I’m team Vixen – the sassy reindeer – the one with attitude.

She deserves her own reality show – The real Vixens of the North Pole (I can picture her and Dancer having a knock down drag out fight over Dasher).


So what does any sassy reindeer deserve?

Bling of course.


How to Make a Reindeer Silhouette


  • Glitter Mod Podge
  • Wooden deer cutout (I got mine at Michael’s)
  • Brown paper bag
  • Paint brush or sponge brush
  • X-acto knife
  • Copper or brown paint pen
  • E-6000 or hot glue gun
  • Jingle bell

1) Tear brown paper bag into random sized pieces

3) Let dry then flip over cutout and use X-acto knife to cut excess paper away from silhouette.

5) Apply a thin coat of Glitter Mod Podge to the brown paper cutout – this is where the bling part comes in!

(it won’t look sparkly until it dries)

6) Use E-6000 or hot glue gun to glue on jingle bell nose

(tip: place something on either side of the bell to hold it upright until it dries)

Fun Christmas Craft Ideas - Make this Reindeer Silhouette

She definitely lives up to being a Vixen.

After all, every gal needs a little bling in their lives.


P.S. Vixen, please tell Santa to bring this Jersey girl a little bling of my own.

  1. This is the baddest, coolest reindeer I have seen. I did not know Mod Podge with Glitter existed. I must have some! Definitely pinning this. My girls would love this project and I can use up the paper bags I have (because I am constantly forgetting my reusable grocery bags).

  2. I was thinking I’d have to find a deer wood silhouette somewhere, sure hope they have the wood ones at our Michaels (Grand Junction, CO). I’m doing a sign for reindeer silhouette. Don’t have a fancy machine to make one so have to do things like that the hard way. Love how you added the torn paper sack on yours, really different and looks great when you finished with cute bell for nose. Happy Thanksgiving.

  3. Love the reindeer, cannot find it at any Michaels but am looking online. Can you tell me what the reindeer measures from tip of nose to top of antlers?

  4. Love it, and love deer since my husband and son are hunters. I’d mount this little deer on a piece of wood or put in a frame and hang it for Christmas – maybe all winter. Love the glitter Mod Podge – I’ve never used it but I love glitter! Thanks for bringing us such an easy craft.
