Lay out some old newspaper on your work surface. Place the reindeer at the center. The newspaper will help collect the excess glitter from the reindeer. It is best to work on small sections at a time, starting from the antlers and working your way down, slowly covering the whole reindeer.


Pour some craft glue into the plastic palette cup to get started. Using the foam brush, brush on a thin coat of glue onto a small section of the paper mache reindeer. Sprinkle on the glitter over the section covered in glue. Shake off the excess glitter onto the newspaper.


Repeat the steps until the whole deer is covered in glitter. Pour the excess glitter back into the container. Set the deer aside to allow the glue to completely dry.


Make a bow out of the wired ribbon. Tie around the reindeer’s neck and trim ribbon edges.
