Glittered Rudolph from Sumo's Sweet Stuff

Sumo's Sweet Stuff has a super cute Christmas craft for all of you today! 

I’m Sumo, and I blog over at Sumo’s Sweet Stuff.

I share lots of sewing and crafting over on my blog. I’ve got three little girls, so the sewing alone keeps me plenty busy! I am so excited for Allison and her new sweet baby. We are all about the sister love around here, and our three girls all came within three years (not planned – but we LOVE it!) so I just know that Allison is going to love having her two little ladies close together.

Christmas is my favorite, and I am just ready for the season, so I thought I would share a quick and simple decoration to get you in the holiday spirit!

Here’s what you’ll need:

- iron on vinyl (mine is from Cricut)
- digital cutting machine (I used my Cricut Mini)
- fabric
- iron
- frame

Open up Cricut Craft Room, or whatever software you are working in. Search for a deer head or reindeer, or something in that vein.

Go ahead and size it to as big as you like.

Now this isn’t important in this case – since it doesn’t really matter which way the reindeer is facing. But if you were working with text, you’d want to make sure to reverse your image!

Now put the iron on vinyl on your cutting mat – glitter side down – and cut. Peel away the negative space.

Cut a piece of fabric to the size of your frame. Mine was 11”x14”.

Put your design on the fabric, and iron it down really well. Peel up the clear backing slowly; if the design comes up with it, put it back down and iron it some more until it adheres to the fabric.

Now Rudolph has a shiny nose, so in our house full of girls, we opted for a pink sparkly nose. You could cut this by hand, or with your machine; either works! Iron that baby on.

Stick it in the frame and you’ve got yourself some holiday cheer, ready to welcome in Santa!

Hang it on your wall, place it on your mantle; Rudolph can find a home anywhere, right?
