- Begin by using a small drill to create holes in your wood slices (or buy pre-drilled wood slices). This is so you are able to string a piece of string through the wood slice. You can also skip this part and use hot glue to adhere a piece of string to the back side of the wood slice. Paint the middle section of your wood slice a brown color. You can either paint the whole wood slice or just paint a small circle. Once your paint is dry, hot glue your googly eyes and mini pom poms to the face of the wood slice. Take your brown pipe cleaner and wrap it around your finger to create a curly antler. Hot glue the pipe cleaner to the top of the wood slice. Lastly string a piece of string, jute or even fishing line through the wide slice.
