Reindeer Quilt Block

Designed by: Treasure It®
Skill level: Intermediate

Get started on holiday decorations for your home with this fun, no-sew quilt block you can frame or attach to a quilted background. Use a child's drawing, printed onto muslin, or create your own design on a piece of muslin. When you add beads, tape and thread, the result is a 3-dimensional festive decoration. And it's a great way to use up your fabric scraps!

Materials needed:

  • 8" x 10" muslin fabric with your design printed or drawn
  • two 8" x 10" sheets of double-sided Treasure Tape
  • Diamond Beadlets
  • Kreinik #12 Braid in 021 Copper
  • Kreinik #32 Braid in 238 Christmas
  • bow made of satin ribbon
  • large red button for nose
  • white buttons for eyes and border
  • scraps of fur or cotton for ears


1. Remove the white backing from your 8x10 sheet of Treasure Tape. Lay the muslin on the sticky tape, with the printed side facing the tape. Smooth out any bubbles.

2. Turn your fabric piece over and remove the red liner exposing the top sticky area.

3. Lay the Kreinik #32 Braid color 238 all around the outline of the reindeer, pressing into the tape to adhere.

4. Use the Kreinik #12 Braid 021 Copper around the antlers, as well as filling in some of the antlers with the thread. Lay the satin bow on one antler, pressing into the tape to make sure it adheres and lays flat.

5. Place tuffs of fur or cotton at ears, pressing into the tape to make sure it adheres.

6. Add buttons for eyes, gold bugle beads for eyelashes, and the red button for nose.

7. Lay buttons all along the top and bottom edge of the design for borders.

8. When thread and fabric decorating is complete, lay your design in a shallow pan or tray and cover all remaining sticky areas with Diamond Beadlets.

If needed, attach the quilt block to a background quilt using an 8x10 sheet of Treasure Tape
