Another Reindeer Matchbox Christmas Tree Decoration

Another reindeer Christmas tree decoration using a matchbox from a pack of 8 from The Works (£1) The matchbox measures 5cm x 3.5cm, just enough to put in a small chocolate or perhaps some Christmas money.

They originally cost £2 for 6.

I punched a hole in the top of the box and threaded through a hanger using striped red bakers twine and matching red wooden bead. A tiny amount of faux stitching using a black fine liner pen finishes off the box.

Fun tree decorations. That wooden reindeer is so cute, especially once you added the gem for the nose and the stickers for the eyes. Are you all ready for Christmas? It will be incredibly fun, I'm sure, with little ones around. Hope it's the best ever!
