How to make a magical Seedball reindeer!

 

If you want to give your Seedball tins a festive twist we’ve got a lovely set of instructions to turn a Seedball tin into a magical Seedball reindeer. Why magical? Because reindeer poo (Seedballs) when scattered will magically turn into a beautiful display of wildflowers!

Hang them on your Christmas tree, give them as a gift, wherever they end up they'll do their best to help grow a brighter future!

 

Materials:

Coloured card (we used dark brown, light brown, black and white),

Tissue paper,

A small amount of thread,

Glue and/or sellotape,

Scissors,

Pencil,

Template,

A Seedball tin,

Refreshments of your choice!

 

Optional magic reindeer poo:

Coloured sugar,

Make Your Own Seedballs kit!

 

Instructions:

Get yourself comfy with a cuppa, some biscuits and Christmas songs in the background to get you in the festive mood!

You can use the template provided and cut out all the shapes - or draw your own shapes!

Place the largest circle (1) on the light brown card, draw around it and cut it out. Glue this circle to the top of your Seedball tin.

Place the smaller circle (2) on the white card, draw around it and cut it out – do this again so that you have two white circles. Glue the white circles on the light brown card to make the reindeer’s eyes.

Place the smallest circle (3) on the black card, draw around it and cut it out – do this again so that you have two black circles. Glue these on top of the white circles to make the eye’s pupils.

 

Place the antler shapes (4 and 5) on the dark brown card, draw around them and cut them out. Make a fold roughly one centimetre from the base of the antlers. Do not attach the antlers to the tin yet!

First, place the ear shape (6) on the light brown card, draw around it and cut it out, do this again so that you have two ears. Attach these ears to the front of your antlers and then attach both to your Seedball tin with glue or sellotape.

 

Finally, place the oval (7) on the black card, draw around it and cut it out. Stick the nose on top of the tin and there you have it!

Your very own Seedball reindeer containing magical reindeer poo to help you grow a brighter future!!

 

 

Optional magic reindeer poo:

If you would also like your reindeer to have super-magical reindeer poo, with a Make Your Own Seedball kit then keep following the instructions below.

Place coloured sugar in a bowl, if you would like to make your own there are some instructions here – sugar will break down easily with a little water in the soil. Do not use glitter as it is usually made from plastic that will not break down in the environment.  

After you roll your Seedballs (following the instructions in the Make Your Own kit), and while they are still damp, roll them in the coloured sugar to make your own colourful and super-magical reindeer poo to scatter in your garden, window-box or plant pot.

Now sit back and wait to enjoy the colourful display the reindeer poo will provide!

 

You may want to use alternative materials such as pipe cleaners for the antlers, pom-poms for the nose, or even googly eyes. We tried to use only recyclable materials for this make to keep our #beefriendly promise this Christmas to reduce, reuse and recycle for a more sustainable festive season!
