Step 3 Bend the 30cm wrapped stick to make a loop about 5cm wide for the ears.
Step 4 Bend the wrapped stick back over top of ears to form head shape. Bend wrapped stick into an L-shape that extends down from back of head for about 5-6.5cm, then bends to form the main part of body. Bend the end of the stick into a loop for the tail.
Step 5 Bend 2 of the 15cm wrapped sticks in half. Wrap tightly around the body, 1 at each end, for legs.
Step 6 Pull off a thin, flat ribbon of wool roving and wrap it around head and ears. Secure by wrapping it around the neck and rubbing a small quantity of glue onto the wrapped neck and ears.
Step 7 Arrange remaining 15cm, 9.5cm and 7cm wrapped sticks on your work surface. Twist the smallest piece tightly around the centres of the other 2 pieces to make the antlers.
Step 8 Place the antlers on the head and wrap a thin ribbon of roving around the antlers and head, crisscrossing roving around the head. Secure by wrapping the roving around the neck and rubbing a small quantity of glue over the end.
Step 9 Beginning at the neck, wrap a long strip of roving around and down to fill out the neck and body. Wrap the roving around the body and tail, in a figure-eight motion, and fill out the middle of body.
Step 10 Spray reindeer lightly with hairspray to hold body shape. Pull off tiny tufts of pink roving and use a felting needle to needle-felt them to the inside of the ears, or use a pink marker instead. Thread the bell onto the ribbon and tie around reindeer’s neck. Bend the antlers to curve slightly forward.
