Reindeer Ornament Quick and Easy


It's about to be that time of year again! Prep-tober has been a fun way for us to get together and get a head start on all the holidays gifts and crafts, so we can be ready for the holiday markets and gift giving. If you aren't signed up for our mailing list yet, run and do that here so you can stay up to date every week with info on our Prep-tober deals and ideas.

This week has been focused on Ornaments & Stockings! I thought I'd share one of my favorite new creations with you for this week!

You guessed it! Reindeer Ornaments!!


 

Rudy the Reindeer

Supplies:

Definitions:
  • MR = Magic Ring

  • inc = increase

  • dec = decrease

  • sc = single crochet

  • hdc = half double crochet

  • dc = double crochet

  • ch = chain

  • slst = slipstich

  • fo = finish off

  • st(s) = stitche(es)


Head:

  1. MR, 8sc (8)

  2. hdc inc x8 (16)

  3. (hdc, hdc inc) x8 (24)

  4. hdc in each st (24)

  5. hdc in each st (24)

  6. hdc in each st (24)

  7. (hdc, hdc dec) x8 (16)

  8. hdc dec x8 (8)

  9. slst and fo leaving a long yarn tail

Stretch your yarn around the top slightly and carefully slide over ornament

Weave yarn tail around opening at top and gently pull to close yarn around top of ornament.

Weave in remaining ends.


Ears:
(Make 2)
  1. MR, 7sc (7)

  2. 2sc, hdc, (hdc, dc, hdc) in next st, hdc, 2sc (9)

  3. Ch 1, TURN, 2sc, 2hdc, (hdc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, hdc) in next st, 2hdc, 2sc (11)

  4. Slst and leave a long tail for attaching to head

Fold ear in half and stitch onto head between rows 7 & 8. You can pin in place before attaching if that makes it easier for you.
















Muzzle:
  1. MR, 8sc (8)

  2. sc, 2inc, 2sc, 2inc, sc (12)

  3. Slst in each st around (12)

  4. fo and weave in extra yarn tail


Assembly:
  1. The antlers can be stitched on or glued into place so that they are centered between the ears. I found it easiest to hot glue them between the yarn head and plastic ornament.

  2. With ornament laying flat, hot glue felt eyes on so the tops of them are in line with round 7. You can use other fabric or super glue for this part if you'd like.

  3. Place muzzle so that it is centered below the eyes and hot glue in place as well.

  4. Peel the back off the self adhesive reindeer nose and place it at the top center of the muzzle. Press firmly for 30 seconds.



Look at you sleighing it!!
