This adorable DIY Wooden Reindeer is the perfect outdoor decor for the holiday season!
You guys all know I’m a sucker for outdoor decor. But since we are in the process of moving 1,000 miles away, my Christmas porch decor and wooden signs and 28 tupperware bins worth of Christmas decor will most likely stay packed this year. Wahh!! So, I’m vicariously living through my BFF Kristin and sharing all of her amazing ideas and decor! Did you catch her Winter porch from last year? Or her Fall porch from this year? They are ah-mazing!!!
Kristin’s awesome hubby made her this adorable wooden reindeer that Kristin painted and turned into one of the cutest winter decor items I’ve ever seen! I’m just so in love with this guy!
