The Annual Reindeer Bead

I can't seem to pass by beads in the shape of certain animals and reindeer always top the list this time of year. I noticed that each year I seem to find a new reindeer bead to add to my collection.

I didn't intend to buy this package of 3 metal pendants, BUT...they were on the clearance wall at Michael's! The original price was $3.99 and the clearance price was $.98! These are part of the Lost & Found Collection from Blue Moon Beads.

Now that I have gotten a close up look at these metal beads, I am wanting to add some paint accents on at least one of them. YES, a red nose came to mind!! :)

Maybe just hints of color around the eye, nose and antlers. I'm sure it will come to me when the time is right!

I hope you are finding great deals on beads too, it certainly makes holiday craft shopping LOTS more fun!!

A red nose would be a great feature! I'm working on some beaded reindeers atm. They will be for the Cristmas post on my blog. I think about making one with a red nose, too.

Hey! I bought a reindeer bead Thanksgiving weekend from Acme beads in WI. I was just about to blog about it. Would you be interested in doing a co-blog holiday beading challenge?
