Carefully paint the disc with brown acrylic paint. Like in the snowmen ornaments, I started with a paint brush, and then gave it a second and third coat with a sponge.

Mix brown paint with a few drops of white to make a lighter brown. Paint an oval shape on the lower edge of the disc, and make sure it passes through the center of the disc.

While you wait for the first coats of paint on the disc to dry, start preparing the noses. You can use a red pompom, or you can use a small Styrofoam ball. Apply one coat of red paint and let dry. Apply a second coat.

Paint two small, black ovals above the center of the disc for the eyes. You can use a thinner paint brush or a cotton swab. I also used a toothpick to add three small white dots, and give the eyes an extra dimension. Alternatively, you can use googly eyes 🙂

Draw the mouth with black paint or a black permanent marker. Glue the nose to the center of the disk, and add some pink blush to the cheeks 🙂

For the antlers, you have two options: use pipe cleaners or craft foam.

If using pipe cleaners, twist three pieces into each other, making sure that you leave the edges free. You can then fold the edges towards the outside to shape them.

If using craft foam, draw a template on a piece of paper and then trace onto the foam. You can then cut them and glue them to the back of the disc.
