These DIY Christmas cards are very very cute! They look great and because little feet have participated, they are also very special.


  • Card or thick paper
  • Paint (we used brown)
  • A marker – or other antler drawing materials
  • Eyes – we used googly eyes, you can make your own, draw them on, use buttons…
  • A shiny nose. We used a red pom pom!


  1. Print your footprint onto the card. We printed many feet, because it’s fun and because footprints don’t always work the first time… We printed onto a larger piece of paper and then cut out the best one!
  2. When your footprint is dry, it is time to give your reindeer a face. We stuck on a pom pom nose, drew on two antlers and gave him googly eyes!
  3. The last step was to stick the footprint reindeer onto a red card. A very special Christmas Card indeed!
