If you are sick of Christmas posts around here, I am sorry. I cannot help myself. This time of year is just SO fun and I have too many projects to share – like this DIY Christmas Wall Art that graces my Christmas mantel this year.
You’ll love how easy this is to make. Let me show you.
DIY Christmas Wall Art Supplies
These are the supplies I used to make this reindeer art as shown in this post. Feel free to substitute anything to make the project your own! Also, this post contains affiliate links and you can read more about those in my disclosure policy.
- Stretched linen canvas
- Christmas-themed scrapbook paper
- Electronic cutting machine (like a Cricut Joy), or make a reindeer stencil by tracing a reindeer shape onto cardstock
- Mod Podge
- Foam brush
- Paint marker or permanent marker
- Small red pom pom
How to Make DIY Christmas Reindeer Art
First, I used my cutting machine to cut nine reindeer head silhouettes on different pieces of Christmas pattern scrapbook paper.
If you don’t have a Cricut or cutting machine, Google “reindeer silhouette,” print an image you like, and trace it onto your cardstock to cut.
Next, I put a thin layer of Mod Podge onto the backs of each of the reindeer.
I pressed them onto the canvas and tried to keep them equidistant from one another. It wasn’t perfect but it was close enough!
Once they were all in place and had dried, I added a thin layer of Mod Podge to the top of each reindeer to seal them into place.
After that, I glued a red pom pom onto the last reindeer’s face, because obviously Rudolph needs a red nose!
Then I used a green Sharpie to write each of the reindeers’ names, just in case anyone was confused about who was who. (And yes, I had to Google the song lyrics so I would be sure to spell their names correctly. Who knew it was “Donner” and not “Donder?”)
And I love my reindeer art! It looks great next to my DIY Reversible Wood Sign, too!
This DIY Christmas wall art adds such a fun look to my mantel that’s filled with other DIY art and thrift shop finds.
I’m happy every time I look at it. (My husband – not so much. He says it’s too cluttered. But what does he know?)
