What materials did you use? Wool roving, wooden oval plaques, black paint, pipe cleaners, needle felting needles, hot glue (to attach the felt to the wood)

What are you most proud of? I love faux taxidermy, or craftydermy, and wanted to create something fun for my handmade ornament swap. There were 8 of us, and 8 reindeer pulling Santa's sleigh so this was the perfect project.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use a photo of a real animal to refer to as you are needle felting. It doesn't have to be photorealistic but it helped me with proportions and eye placement.
