Hi, I'm Ava Lynne Green. Today, I'm going to show you how to make an easy beaded reindeer. First thing you need are two pipe cleaners, brown, you'll need 18 millimeter star flake beads, 12 millimeter star flakes, ten millimeter, a six millimeter faceted, a four millimeter faceted, and a six millimeter red for his nose. This is a fast drying thick craft glue and you will also need a pair of wire cutters. Tale a four inch piece of pipe cleaner, bend it in half, string three 12 millimeter star flakes, one six millimeter faceted and then four of the four millimeter faceted. To keep the beads from falling off, I like to put the end of a pipe cleaner in a little bit of glue and then stick the last bead back on. You complete both legs like that then move to the second set of legs and do it exactly like the first. Again fold the main part of the antler in half and string on three four millimeter beads, take one of the pieces of small branches of the antler, put a little bit of glue on it in the middle and just twist it on to the pipe cleaner right like that. Take one of your leg pieces, fit it down right next to the tail and then add a 12 millimeter star flake. Then six 18 millimeter star flakes. Once you get those one then we'll get the second set of legs in place and now your antlers. Two ten millimeter star flakes for his snout, add a little glue and clip the ends. You can find the pattern for this and other projects at Terri's Yarns and Crafts.
