Torso and head To begin with, you need to prepare the body forthe future of a deer. In order to do this, you need to take and twist the red hair into a small lump using a mid-sized felting needle. Further, it is necessary to shape the cone with a truncated view on the length of 1.5 centimeters with a product diameter of 1.2 centimeters. Using a thin needle, we produce the sealing and grinding of our parts. After, there is a formation of the head. In order to do this, you also need to roll the red hair, and then, confuse it in a lump. From it we form an oblong-shaped cylinder, which will be rounded at two ends. The muzzle of the deer will look wider, there will also be more of a head in the end, on the face of the hero we will place the nose in a spherical shape, and the size of the muzzle will be made wider in the form of a 1.5 centimeter diameter. The head will be narrow, small, but the diameter should correspond to the diameter of the trunk at the end, being slightly wider. Components of the Rudolph deer The nape of a deer is formed with the help oftangling, and then rolling the red wool into a small ball, using a medium sized needle. Then, the process of felting the shape of a sphere. After that, use a thin needle for grinding. The nose will have dimensions of 1.2 centimeters in diameter, respectively. Also we form horns. For this, brown wool takes, which rolls into cylinders of oblong form, in small sizes. Two cylinders are formed, which will be longer than the rest. Further, we put small ends to the form, using an angle of 50 degrees. Either, we pile up the horns, using particle breaking. The third option is the formation of the frame by wire, and then winding the wire. After, it is necessary to make ears for the future of the Deer. For this, we use red hair, which must be screwed into the cylinders for a length of 1.2 centimeters. Using the middle needle, we form the cylinder element, we make a flattening from above. Further, using a thin-type needle, we perform felting cleaning. It is necessary to remove the thin hairs, and also to form for the deer flattened under the tips for the shape. Mixing all the particles and decor Using the needlemedium size, it is necessary to seal the torso of the future deer to the head. For this, the muzzle needs to be directed upwards, because the olelenok will look upward. Deer has a long job, so do it right. Next, we form a bow-shaped globe, bright color directly to the head. Horns also need to be sealed in the same way. But, to make them look up, except that they do not interfere with each other. Next, one pair must be deployed in perpendicular form to the other. Thus, the horns will not touch each other. After - we seal the ears, using the position lower than the horns. Right under them, in one line. Using beads, we form eyes for the animal. Next - a scarf is formed in green. To do this, you need to take the green component of the wool and form a strip in length by 1 centimeter. It should be longer than the circumference in the trunk. Then, the scarf must be welded to the body, then - sanded using a needle. We leave one end in a free state. Using white wool, we form the flower pattern on our scarf. For a long scarf we make shortening by means of scissors. Also, we grind with a needle. Next, it is necessary to form a loop with the help of a wire, so that it can be hung on a key chain or on a Christmas tree. Thus, our work on the creation of the Rudolf deer is complete!
