Craft sticks
Google eyes
Small red pom pom
Tacky craft glue

Cut 2  3-1/2" wide x 11" long strip from the brown paper. Glue the stips together to make a long band.

On the 2nd sheet of brown, trace two handprints - one left and one right - onto the brown paper. Cut out.

Wrap the paper strip around the child's head until it is snug. Hold it and remove it from the child's head.  Trim off the excess. Glue together. Place a handprint inside of the crown on each side. Glue the antlers to the band. Add some tape to hold them in place until it dries. Glue a craft stick to the middle of the  palm of the handprint. extending to the band.
