How To Make A Reindeer Christmas Soft Sculpture Decoration

Updated on February 19, 2015

Oh Dear! A Reindeer Christmas Soft Sculpture Decoration

Here is the Reindeer I make for my holiday decorating, it was fun to create. He is about 20 some inches long and about 18 inches not counting is antlers. I made him for a pattern I found on Etsy and left over felt I had in my fabric stash. I think he is adorable and really fits in my theme well since I modified him to suit my fancy.

The pattern called for using tree branches for antlers and since I mostly have palm trees and tropical plants where I live I decided to draw out my own and made them from 2 pieces of felt that I sew together and stuffed without turning them This left the seam visible on the outside and save me the trouble of trying to turn a small piece. I stuffed it tight with fiber fill to make it stand upright.

Time required: 2 hours

Difficulty: easy

Cost: $5-15 depending upon your stash


  • Pattern
  • Large piece of felt
  • Fiber Fill
  • Christmas Bow
  • Christmas Jingle Bells
  • Black Craft Paint
  • Black Sharpie Pen
  • Scrap Fabric for Saddle


  • Scissors
  • Sewing Machine
  • Needle and Thread
  • Tacky Glue


1. Cut and tape pattern pieces together

Layout and cut pattern from felt

Sew ears and tail pieces together

Sew body leaving an opening for stuffing

Sew Front and Back Leg leaving an opening for stuffing

Attach ears and tail according to pattern directions

Stuff legs and body with fiber fill stuffing

Paint nose & hooves on legs and allow to completely dry

Glue legs in position using tacky glue or glue gun

Use sharpie marker to draw line slits for the eye, the pattern suggested a sewn stitch for eyes.

2. I used pink for the inside of the ears and a scrap of white faux fur for the tail.

I also used my imagination to create a deer to suit my holiday decorating theme.
