Thanks everyone for your comments.  Mincemeat, it wasn't hard at all.  I found a photo of a reindeer on the internet, enlarged it and printed it out on Photoshop.  Then I traced it onto freezer paper using a lightbox.  Cut it out and ironed it onto brown flannel and used the paper as a guide to cut it out.  I peeled the paper off and did the edges of the flannel with fray-check.  Spray-basted it with 505 and sewed it down as raw edge applique.   Trees were cut out free-hand and then painted and appliqued down.  Chenille was about 5 strips of 1/2 inch wide tan bias, folded in half and sewed down  the fold, 1/8 inch apart from each other.
