Prep Time 5 minutes
Craft Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 1 Sheet Paper White
  • 1 Marker Black
  • 1 Pack crayons or colorful pencils 


  • Take your black marker and draw a slightly oval shape on your white paper. When you're done, measure one third of your oval shape. Now draw a line to mark this third quarter. In the bigger sized part of your divided oval shape, draw a circle that's the size of a pea. Then just below it, draw a smaller circle. Now, move to the outside of your circle. On the edge of one third of your oval shape, you should draw three lines that look like eyelashes. 
  • Just above your oval shaped circle, you should draw a concave line that's downwards. Move to the bottom of your oval shaped circle. Now, you should draw a small circle.Below this circle, you should draw a curved line that starts below it. It should curve inwards until you pass the new small circle. This line that curves should stop above your oval shaped circle. 
  • You should draw your first antler on top of this line that you've drawn. You should be careful when drawing your antler. You don't want your marker to smudge allover your page. If you can, find a way to trace the antler with a pencil before you begin drawing it.
  • Move on to drawing your second antler. It should be evenly spaced. Again, make sure that you avoid any smudged lines when you draw your antlers. They're the most challenging part of your drawing. When you're done drawing your second antler, you should draw a line that curves inwards from the halfway point of this antler.
  • Now you should draw another smaller line inside the line that you've just drawn from your finished antler. Draw another one similar that meets the one that you've just drawn at the top. By now, you should start seeing a finished ear of your deer. From the ear, you should complete the circle that you started in step 2.Move your marker from the ear of your deer face to the starting point of the curved line that you drew below that smaller circle that you drew in step 2.Your deer should have a complete facial structure now.
  • To move on to the body of your deer, you should draw a line down from the bottom part of your deer face. Your line should curve inwards slightly in the middle.This will be the body of your deer. You should carry on drawing your front deer foot or hoof.
  • Go back to the neck part of your deer and start drawing the back of it. The line shouldn't be straight. Make it curve slightly. Draw the back legs, but when you reach the middle point, your line should make a sharp curve outwards. Then continue down till you reach the back hoof of your deer. Draw the line upwards and stop parallel to  where the sharp curve point is.
  • Draw a short line to separate the back hoof and the body. Then draw another small line towards the inner edge of your deer body. 
  • Now, you should draw the second hoof at the back. Make sure that it's the same length as the other back hoof.
  • When you have two back hooves, you can start drawing the last hoof in the front.Draw a line to connect the bottom part of your deer body with the back and front hooves. 
  • Now that your deer body is complete. You should draw a short tail at the back. You should draw half an oval shape from the edge of the back of your deer body.
  • Draw a line just behind the small circle on the nose of your deer face. Draw six small circles on the body of your deer. When you're done, you should have a beautiful deer.
  • Use your black marker to highlight the eyes and nose. Take a dark brown crayon or colored pencil to color in your antlers, the small circle on the body, and hooves.Use a lighter shade of brown to color in the rest of the body. You now have a deer that you can hang on your bedroom wall.
