In the Garden

Santa's Steed Snaps Together

November 24, 1996

This pull-apart reindeer is one of the easiest do-it-yourself holiday decorations you'll ever find.

All of the reindeer's six pieces are traced onto 1-inch pine using full-size patterns, cut out, sanded, stained or painted and assembled.

All of the pieces interlock, so nails and glue aren't necessary.

After finishing the woodwork, it's time to be creative. Add a red pompom nose, movable eyes and a colorful red or green bow around the neck. Or make up your own design.

The finished reindeer will look terrific under the tree, in front of the fireplace or near the front door. It measures 24 inches high by 11 inches long by 6 inches wide.

When the holidays are over, pull the project apart into six compact pieces and store it flat with the rest of the holiday decorations.

Cost of instructions for the Pull-Apart Reindeer, No. 819, is $6.95 and includes complete step-by-step directions, full-size traceable patterns and a shopping list and cutting schedule.
