Pretty Pink Reindeer Holiday Decor

Make your own pretty pink reindeer with this easy holiday DIY craft.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I’m pretty obsessed with my pink Christmas tree from Big Lots. It’s so adorable, fluffy and PINK. Plus, it was less than 50 bucks!

So, I was inspired to create more pretty pink holiday decor wit this paper mache reindeer head. Keep reading for more details.

Pink Christmas Tree Living Room

I am part of the DecoArt core blogger team for 2019-2020.  This post and paint is sponsored by DecoArt, but all opinions, ideas and creative inspo are from me.

Supplies Needed:

  • Paper Mache Deer Head (I purchased mine at Michaels, but this one would be really pretty too!)
  • DecoArt Americana Acrylic paint in Pink Chiffon + Cotton Candy
  • DecoArt Snow-Tex
  • Paint brushes

Paint Deer Head Pink

How to make a pink reindeer wall decoration.

Start by painting your reindeer head with Americana Cotton Candy pink paint. I painted two coats – it dries quickly.

Then, use the lighter shade of pink paint in Pink Chiffon to outline the inside of the deer ears – this little detail adds some character and contrast.

Add SnowTex to Deer Head

This is my favorite detail. Add a little snow-tex as if it has settled naturally on the deer’s antlers and ears. I love how realistic this snowy stuff is! And, it’s very easy to use. This pretty detail is so wintery good!

Finally, I added a few holiday embellishments with some mini ornaments and felted leaves.

This pink reindeer head is a lovely addition to my vintage holiday decorations. Who doesn’t love decorating with pops of pink?

Vintage Pink Deer Head

Such a simple and fun decoration in a vintage pastel color. I love how the paint dries on the paper mache material with a smooth, matte finish.

Vintage Truck Pink Reindeer Head

I think I might even add some of the DecoArt Snow-Tex to these trucks too. Wouldn’t that be a lovely winter scene?

So, are you decorating with any vintage or modern color palettes this year (that don’t involve red or green)? I’d love to know. And, where else could we use this Snow-tex?

    I did not know this Snow-Tex product existed – thanks! I’m getting ready to do some 3D art pieces and can envision using this in a couple of ways. I assume once it’s dry it also could be painted to resemble a hilly landscape or maybe small rocks?

      Oh yes! It was so fun to work with and I could definitely see using it in 3D art. I’m thinking about adding it to my little trucks with trees in them!
