Well in my belly dance class my fabulous and creative teacher, Leela, likes to mix things up. Our current choreography is to a Christmas song and we wear antlers in class, it's a blast! Who is my favorite "reindeer"? It's Max from the Grinch!
So what's a Christmas antler wearing belly dancer crafter to do? Why whip up a Max antler!
This is the sketch I did to try to figure out size and shape. Not fancy but workable.
Then I cut a strip of felted off white wool sweater about 12 1/2 inches long by 2 1/2 inches wide.
Then I folded a length of floral wire in half and twisted it around itself to make a bit of an armature.
Then I just rolled the sweater around the wire and hot glued it in place.
I curved the base of the antler into the curve using my sketch and repeated the process for the two little branches coming off the main stick. Those pieces were about 2 1/2 inches wide by 3 inches long.
All that was left to do was cover an old head band with another recycled sweater bit and glue the antler onto the headband. I did dress it up by adding a bow (plaid of course) and a tiny ornament.
