  1. Take a piece of card in a colour you would like your antlers to be and place your hand near the very top of the page.
  2. Draw around your whole hand and all the way down your arm. Be generous when drawing round your hand so the antlers are bigger.
  3. Do exactly the same with your other hand.
  4. Cut both hands out. Make sure you cut out the arm as well.
  5. Place the card hands behind the head band at the angle you would like them to be.
  6. Wrap the arm parts of the card around the head band and secure with sticky tape. Make sure you secure the card to the head band as well.

Tips…

  • Be careful not to tear the card when you wrap it round the head band. It’s a little fiddly but as long as you don’t force the card it will wrap around effectively.
  • Select a thin head band so it’s easier to wrap the card around.
  • We thought swapping the hands over so the thumbs point outward looked better as antlers.
  • You can paint your card so it’s the colour you want.
