Fifth & Final Burlap Christmas Makedo - Meet Rupert

 Welcome one and all to my fifth and final burlap makedo for Christmas and as you can see, it's a biggie!

This is Rupert the burlap reindeer, with twiggy antlers and legs (which are not too steady!!) but here he is just finished and finding his balance!  Just copy the basic shape of the reindeer if you wish to make one!
 His ears are glued on after pinching them and as you can see I used buttons for eyes and felt for his muzzle.
 Hasn't he got the cutest, most innocent face?!!



He has taken up watch under the Christmas tree waiting for Santa's arrival, so the kids had better be nice!!
 He also put on a wreath collar -just to look the part!
 Waiting patiently...


It's nearly time...

So please leave a comment and you can be entered in my giveaway .

I'll leave it open until Monday night and draw the winner's name on Tuesday!

Thanks to all who have supported this series and I really hope you have enjoyed them as much as me!
It's been great meeting new bloggers also - thanks for getting in touch!
Don't hesitate to  email me if there's anything regarding these that you'd like to ask.

Best wishes for a wonderful festive season!

  19. Ahhh, Rupert is to die for!!! He is so cute. If he lived at our house I am sure he would be come a ride for a Barbie or stuffed animal. Baby would cart him around and try to put him in her barn. Those stick legs are awesome. You are such a talented person. I will put this on my sidebar too for sure:) -Steph-
