I started out by covering my light bulb with three layers of paper mache so I didn't have to worry about it breaking and getting glass every where. You can use the techniques shared in this how-to paper mache tutorial. Let the paper mache dry completely before you move on to the next step.
Paint the covered light bulb with brown paint. Let the paint dry completely. Whil I waited for the paint to dry, I placed the neck of the light bulb in a small cup.
With the neck of the light bulb pointing up, paint eyes and a mouth on the reindeer. Glue on the red, pom-pom nose. Cut two antlers out of fun foam or felt using the pattern below. Glue one to each side of the light bulb neck.
