If you trust your drawing skills, I say: go for it!

Draw the reindeer and Santa's sleigh shape on a piece of paper, cut it out and then just follow the shape on pieces of light and dark brown cardstock papers. Remember to have at least a small piece of red cardstock paper for Santa’s sleigh too.

If you can’t draw that well, then just print a reindeer picture and use it as a shape. Once that’s all set, use a bit hot glue or tape to secure the twine on the back of each reindeer.
