Glue wiggle eyes and pom to the ornament. Exercise caution in this step as ornaments tend to break easily.

When working with younger crafters, make sure they don’t press down too hard on the eyes or nose.

Make antlers out of pipe cleaner. Cut a 12-inch pipe cleaner into one 6 inch piece and two 3 inch pieces.

Use the 6-inch piece as the “base” of the antlers and use the shorter segments to make the horns.
