Reindeer Cork Craft

Santa dear, never fear.  These clever deer will make you cheer!

Materials: straightish sticks for legs and neck, branched sticks for antlers (these are from huckleberries), 2 corks, tacky glue, paint, ribbon, paper ears and tail

Tips:  Use an awl or nail to poke holes in the body for the sticks (legs and neck), and shave a bit of cork off the head with a knife to give it a more head-like shape.  For the eyes, dot white paint on with a Q-tip (cotton swab).  For pupils and nose, use 3D fabric paint (shiny and sticks out a bit).
