The Red Nosed Reindeer

For most Rudolph has been a part of Christmas forever,
but he is a relatively new addition to Christmas tradition. His character and story
were created in 1939 by a copy writer (Robert L. May) for Montgomery Ward department store as a promotional gimmick in the form of a coloring book.

The song came later, in 1949 May's brother-in-law Johnny Marks (a song writer) adapted the original story into the popular "Roudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" recorded by Gene Autry.

Below are a variety of projects in a wide range of difficulty dedicated
to honoring the antlered marketing marvel and his eight buddies.

Jeff and I made this Roudolph for Lola's room, using this template.
This is not our picture, it is from the origional post... Lola is sleeping in her room at the moment, when she wakes up I will update this picture to ours. 
It was a lot of fun and quite easy, we highly recommend trying this one.
