In my last post, I shared our virtual Southern Exposure workshop, where friends Kate, Jan and I decorated a tealight candle holder. But Kate and I had ordered another project, too, and although we didn't Zoom this one, I wanted to share it. (Cue the Music!)
It was making our own Rudolph. Southern Exposure delivered this well made reindeer, with limbs screwed in. Along with it was a bag of "stuff."
This was the simplest project ever. One plastic ball, with its hanging mechanism removed, was screwed into a hole on the reindeer's nose. Then I just added the three balls and spray of bells to the antlers and tied the bright red and white scarf around his neck. Voila!
(The project also came with lights but I opted out of that. That might change but right now, I like it without.)
This took all of five minutes. And then he went to his new home, outside!
It's looking a lot like Christmas inside, too -- but that's coming soon!

What a fun Rudolph! Enjoy, hugs, Valerie
I saw those on your last post, but was delighted to see they weren't just Southern Exposure decorations. How cute and clever. How will your lights hold up in the ice and snow that will surely arrive very soon? That worries me.
Your Rudolph looks cute, what a great project. Take care, have a happy weekend!
I love it, it's adorable!
He looks like the perfect addition to the Christmas spirit!
That is neat.
That's really cute! And I love the easy process!
He looks a lovely Rudolph ... enjoy him :)
One of our sons has a new Rudolph in his garden too, it really makes me think we ought to get one! And there is still time!
Wishing you a happy weekend..
Take care and look after yourself.
All the best Jan
Perfect! That looks so cute!
Oh I like Rudolph. What a great ornament on your outside steps. This looks like a fun project! Hugs-Erika
So clever! He looks he is up for winter.
What a fun and festive Rudolf! Janice
Rudolph is fantastic! I'm glad you are getting to enjoy this season.
Uh-oh. If my Nieces see your Rudolph they´ll be there!!!
Oh, he´s so cute, if there was no "Corinna", if I had the money and if you would like to share a "Hi!" I´d be on my way.
A rather resplendently regal looking Rudolph indeed!

Good morning, Jeanie! That little Rudolph of yours has to take the prize for the cutest of Santa's reindeers! Hope that you are enjoying your weekend!
That looks like a bare bones, slimmed down Rudolph, ready for his annual ride.
I love those!👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻
Looks huge in the inside picture.
Perfect where you placed it outside.
Heavy ? and must have cost a fortune to mail it!
I will be singing Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer all day long!
Rudolph looks wonderful!
Oh look at Rudolph!!! What fun! :)
What a fun Rudolph!
Very creative idea, Jeanie! :)
That is so cute Jeanie! I think my BIL needs to make one! Xoxo
Rudolph looks like he's ready to lead Santa from your home, Jeanie. I heard Burl Ives singing his iconic song about Rudolph this afternoon. Such a classic tune that has left me humming. I really expected to see snow at your place. Enjoy the weekend.
I love Rudolph.
Rudolph is too cute and seems to love his new home. Jeanie, I am so envious of your sheet music. As a pianist, old music is a treasure! Happy weekend!
This is such a beautiful and unique Rudolph. It is a keeper, for sure.
I recently learned that reindeer and caribou are the same animal, with different names in different places. Rudolph alliterates better with reindeer, though! Yours is a cutie!
That is simply adorable!! Thanks so much for visiting...It was a busy week but I am finally getting a chance to catch up on my emails...We are predicted right now to get about a foot of snow on Wed.!!! That may change but something is coming our way!!
I'm with you - sheep are adorable to me - they look so country perfect. Have a wonderful week!
What a creative Rudolph! Oh, he sure makes our hearts merry with his red nose and dear character. I actually love to watch the old classics, and they are my favorites. Is that sheet music? Wow, those are old and wonderful to have. Rudolph looks festive outside your home.
My husband use to make similar reindeer for our yard, even whole families. They weren't quite as tidy looking, but I loved them. This makes me want another reindeer. I love yours with the scarf and jingle bells.
What a cute Rudolph!
Your community has lovely decorations. And that tree at the Capitol is gorgeous!
Love your little deer. We need to make something like that.
Jeanie, seeing that crafted reindeer made me wish we had an outdoor space for it. It looks like it would be easy enough to gather the needed materials on a forest walk with downed branches. Pat is really good with hammer, nails and screws too. Your finished reindeer looks lovely and I would have skipped the lights as well.
Rudolph will certainly bring a smile to all those who pass by.
What a fun project!
