Looking around at Pinterest and other sites for some craft inspiration, I found this!  It was from the Smart School House page, and I thought it was adorable.  Heading to the local store, I bought a few brown washrags/cloths (finding brown was kind of hard), and got to work.  It was so easy to do, and could be personalized in any way that you wanted.  Making some for gifts, I had to keep one to use to decorate in the house.  They are just too cute!!  This would be a perfect family craft, and even one that the kids could help with.  Just be sure to help them with the glue gun portion.  I have a blister on one finger from that part, so maybe I need to get some supervision myself! 😀 

Hoping this craft idea will be something that you love to make, this Christmas. It’s always fun to share projects that can be used as gifts for friends or family.  If you make one, be sure and share a photo on my FB page, with what you come up with.  I’d love to see it!  I sure hope that you like the tutorial, and pray that you have a blessed day!

Please be sure to comment, and share this craft on your social media channels – thanks so much!!

Materials/Tools Used:

  • Brown Washrag/Cloth
  • Box of Soap
  • Rubber Band
  • Ribbon
  • Bell(s)
  • Felt

  • Red Pom-Pom(s)
  • & Time!

Instructions for the Washrag Christmas Reindeer:

Start by laying the box of soap in the center of the washrag, at an angle.

Fold the back of the cloth over and under the box of soap.  Be sure, to make it as tight as you can.

Next, fold the front piece corner up to the bar, and then over the top.  Again, being tight with the fold.

Pull the overlapping pieces together a bit tighter, and fold the two (2) edges up together and secure with a rubber band.  You might have to adjust the sides to be even, and folded to look more like ears.  Totally up to you, on how perfect you want it.

Using my Cricut, I found some clipart of antlers, and cut enough out for the reindeer I was going to make.  Like my last project, the felt just didn’t cut all the way through, so I had to trim off the edges, etc.  I guess it looks like a reindeer’s new antler growth, when they are a bit fuzzy, so it’ll work.

When those were all cut out and trimmed, I used my glue gun to attach a set to the back of the “ears” on each piece.

Now, using about a 2′ length of Christmas-style ribbon, I added a small bell to the center.  When the bell was centered, I tied the ribbon around the ears, pretty much to hide the rubber band.  This could be done in any style you want.  I stink at tying bows, so if you’re a pro at it, make it even more detailed!

Now it’s time for the face.  Using some googly eyes, and red pom-poms that I had in my craft room, I glued those on to the front of the piece.

Again, like I said, you could go crazy with how you decorate these, and make them all your own.  I love mine, and it’s sitting in our house and making the room smell amazing.  Be sure to use a soap that you like the scent of, because it comes through the washrag into the air usually.  Here’s my finished reindeer family.  What do you think?

I hope you and your family have great Winter season and blessed Christmas.  Stay safe and stay warm!  What do you think?  I hope you like it!  Please take a minute to leave me a comment on what you would like to create, and maybe if you have any tips on how to do it different, or better!

Be sure to tweet, pin, share, etc. – thanks!!
