Reindeer Re-do Because Even Rudolph Needs a Makeover Sometimes

I have had these two paper mache reindeer for about 10 years and they were definelty due for a re-do.  I'm joining Susan at BNOTP for Met Monday.  You can visit Susan and checkout the other posts for this week by clicking here



I wanted to give them a marbled look with bronze coloring.  I used 4 differant metallic paints and sponged the paint on randomly until I got the effect I wanted.

All dolled up with a pretty bow

And speaking of makeovers, I have a birthday coming up at the end of the month and have been thinking that I need a makeover....I need a redo.  I was browsing the Internet earlier today and saw some makeovers done by the Today Show.  All of these makeover pictures are of women 50-70 and were some of my favorites.   We all know how easy it is to get caught up with taking care of our families and some of us work outside the home....the years rock on and before you know it, you've kind of gotten a bit worn looking around the edges.  I think Number 5 is probably the one that is the most drastic change.....Which one do you like best?

No 1


No 2


No 3


No 4


No 5


No 6

All the best,


Pin It!

I think your reindeer have a little more dimension to them now. Love the ribbon, too!

I think #6 is very dramatic. I look through these too sometimes. I thought I heard or read that when you are over 40 bangs are good {and some of these have bangs}. I keep going back and forth on bangs, except bangs drive me crazy.

I just adore your Christmas inspired metamorphosis.

#5 is my fav.

Be merry and bright!
