Ideas from Charlecote for your Christmas crafts

We see many of our visitors out with cameras all year round. Many who have visited over the winter tell us that they use their photos, particularly those of our deer, to make Christmas cards for friends and family.

But have our deer inspired any other Christmassy crafts? Here’s a few ideas from our team…

Gift labels

Simply made with brown tags and a thumb print of paint. Once the paint dries draw on the antlers, eyes and a button nose.

We've made labels showing the different colours of our resident fallow deer. Plus a Rudolph, of course!

Christmas cards

If you’ve children, they might like to help create these cards. Following a similar method to our labels, only the deer head is a foot print!

Fallow deer peg decoration

Or how about using pegs to make a small deer decoration? These could be placed on your Christmas dinner table as name settings or put on the tree for all to enjoy.

NT Passport : No awkward photo required!

prodzoomimg10871Did you know that the National Trust has its own passport and there is absolutely no need for any awkward photos!

You can pick up an NT passport for the small price of £4 in our shops and, at each of our special places, get it stamped. Once you have collected 30 stamps you can get a certificate which is sent to you from our central office.

Our passports are popular with visitors of all ages!

Oliver, aged 1, has had his since he was just a few months old and is using it to record his first forages to National Trust properties.
