So basically we (well, Hil) wrapped the balls with yarn. I cut out the antlers from the felt using the antler pattern from the craftelf website (I had to resize it to make it smaller..) and we hot glued those on. Hil made these cute little corkscrew tufts from the black pipe cleaners by wrapping it around a glue stick and the pinching the ends together to make it round. We glued one of those between the antlers. We hotglued jingle bells to the inside of each antler. We strung a jingle bell onto a length of glitter ribbon (getting glitter everywhere, fyi) and tied the ends to make a hanger. That was hotglued behind the antlers. Then eyes and a pom pom for the nose. As you can see, we probably should have used larger eyes. But they have a lot of homemade character!!
