I found this darling large papier mache reindeer at a local Thrift Shop! I remember them from maybe 30 years ago:) He was metalic gold with a gold bow around his neck and was marked ONE DOLLAR! I couldn't get him in my cart fast enough:) Late last night I decided to paint him brown (thanks Sandy and Gerry). After three different coats of brown paint, I finally got him the way I wanted. With a fresh contemporary bow and some festive greenery he is now ready for the coming season. Not sure if I will keep him for the Christmas festivity or take him to the shop....Recycled Rose. But............one way or the other, I am very happy with the outcome!
