Paint the back of the plate brown and let it dry completely. Cut out antlers and ears.
Draw a string of lights on the antlers. In a few areas, color a small square or rectangle shape.
Add dots beneath the squares for the Christmas lights using the bottom of a paintbrush dipped in paint. Let it dry. Glue the antlers and ears to your paper plate. Add the nose, googly eyes, and a smirk smile.
