recycled reindeer

I needed to make some Reindeer for the school christmas grotto, I decided to make just the heads, so they could peep over a stable door, but where to start? It occurred to me that I could base the design of a hobby horse, and after much googling found an idea of making hobby horses out of old trouser legs. after a bit of adapting, this is what I came up with.
The theme at One powerful hour is recycled,so I am entering this reindeer


  1. I never would have guessed that was an old pair of pants! WOW! Your little R-dear is adorable...I think he would look good as a kids pony, you know with a post coming out one end so the child could ride him...

    Thanks for taking the challenge! You really went above an beyond this week!

  2. heheeeee love the reindeer Joanne !
    what a great idea too !

  3. He makes me laugh Joanne. He's got this "Duh" look on his face. He's great!

  4. heehee...hes just soooooooo brilliant. Endless talent...

  5. Terrific, Joanne....the children will love this...I know I do. What fun.
