difficulty rating - 4

how to...

Tools:

hot glue gun/glue sticks, scissors, fine-point black marker.

Preparation:

Gather supplies.  Paint the light bulb brown.  Fold the piece of fleece in half, so that you have a piece that is 3" x 5".  Sew or glue the unfinished edge of the 5"-long side, forming a tube; turn.

 

Instructions:

1  Snip 1" lengths of fringe on one end of the fleece tube.

2.  Gather the fringe and secure tightly with a rubber band.  Turn back 1/2" of the other end of the fleece to form a cuff.

3.  Glue the hat onto the screw-end of the light bulb.

4 Cut the piece of brown felt in half, and shape each half into long ears. 

5 Insert the ears into the cuff of the hat and glue in place.

6  Arrange a small bundle of sticks into antlers and tie with the twine.

7  Glue the bundle of sticks onto the front of the hat.

8  Using the red floss, tie the jingle bell onto the antlers.

9   Thread the string through the hat and knot for a hanger.

10.  Draw eyes and a mouth onto the front of the lightbulb using the black marker.  Glue the black pom in place for a nose.  Shape the red felt into a small tongue and glue in place onto the mouth.
