If you’re looking for a non traditional holiday DIY (that you could totally leave up year round), look no further than this stunning paper reindeer. It should take you about 3 days (on and off) and come in under $30, so get cutting!

  1. Download template.
  2. Print template out on 100 lb cardstock paper (using the paper color of your choice!)
  3. Using an x-acto knife / scissors, cut out all the pieces.
  4. Using the sharp edge of a ruler, fold all sides (fold the dash-dot line towards yourself, and the dotted line away from yourself)
  5. Each edge is numbered and there are 2 of each number. Search for the matching pair and glue the pieces together.
  6. Punch a hole in the back and hang wherever you please!
