Use a handsaw to cut firewood or birch log into two 1/4-inch slices. Paint slices with white exterior paint, then use marker to add a small dot as the pupil. Fasten eyes to sides of mailbox with hot glue gun.
Wrap 3-inch foam ball with red acrylic yarn, creating several layers until the white foam is completely hidden from view. Secure yarn to foam ball with hot glue gun. Next, add nose to the top of the mailbox door with hot glue.
Add festive embellishments, like a red Santa Claus hat or knitted scarf, to give the reindeer a more playful look. During the day and night, your mailbox will be a showstopper.
