    • 1 light brown brush (tail and ears)
    • glue gun
    • Knife


Step 1: Cut the legs

  • Cut the cork into two pieces vertically, as if it were a log.
  • Cut the halves in half. You should have 4 thin long legs.

Step 2: Cut the head and neck

Cut the cork horizontally into two parts, one of which should be a third, the second two thirds. The long part will become the head, and the short part - the neck.

Step 3: Glue the legs, neck and head to the body.

  • Glue the legs to the whole cork.
  • From above attach a neck, and to it a head.

Step 4: Add the details.

  • From the brush of a dark color horns are twisted, which are glued to the back of the head of a deer. If the brush is too fluffy, you can trim it.
  • Small pieces for the ears and deer tails are cut out of the light brush.
  • Glue the spout from a red bead or pom-pom.
  • Neck deer can be decorated with a bow of bright ribbons. To the edges of the tape did not crumble, you can sing them over the candles.

You can use such deer as decoration, placing them under the tree. Or place them directly on the dining table, as holders for cards indicating the location of the seats.
