You could just make the head section and make it into a wand design.

Here we go then, the instructions for Rudolph the red nose reindeer.

And yes I have heard the joke about the guy trying to sell 8 legs of venison for
50 pounds and you refused to buy them as you thought it was to dear.

Inflate a 260 mocha and leave 6/7 fingers un-inflated.

Make two 1.5 finger bubbles and make into two pinch twists,
then make a 2 finger bubble pinch twist for the lower mouth section.

Twist a 5 finger bubble and a 1.5 finger pinch twist.
(I only made one pinch twist but at the end of making the design thought
the head section and 160 blush would fit better with two pinch twists here)

Twist another 5 finger bubble and twist around the mouth section.

You then need another 5 finger bubble followed by a 1.5 finger pinch twist,
the antlers will fit here later.

You then need a 1 finger spacer bubble and twist this around the lower head pinch twist.

We are now going to make the ears, make a 4/5 finger bubble followed by
a 2/3 finger bubble. Depends how big you would like his ears to be.

Twist the second bubble into the pinch twist where the antlers will attach later.

Then make a 3/4 finger bubble and a 4/5 finger bubble and twist into the lower pinch
twist again. The ears must be proportioned correctly so they angle upwards.

Make a 2 finger bubble for the neck and a 1.5 finger pinch twist.
Do not discard the ret of this balloon until you tie in the next 260,
you will get a better connection doing it this way.

For the feet inflate a black 260 approx. half way.

Make a small 1.5 finger bubble followed by a 3 finger fold twist.
Then make three more 3 finger fold twists and then make the 1.5 finger
bubble into a pinch twist. This helps the feet to all sit nicely.

The rest of the black 260 can be used for the eyes later.

Inflate the next 260 mocha and leave 6 fingers un-inflated,
tie this around the lower neck pinch twist and then deflate the first
260 mocha that was remaining on the first balloon.

Twist a 5 finger bubble for the leg and twist this into the black 260.
Make another 5 finger bubble for the other front leg and twist into the pinch twist.

You then need another 5 finger bubble for the body and a 1.5 finger pinch twist.

Then make another 5 finger bubble for the first rear leg and twist into the black 260.

You then need the other back leg which is a 5 finger bubble twisted into the pinch twist.

You then need to make the outer two body bubbles,
twist a 4 finger bubble around the front body pinch twist and
then another 4 finger bubble back to the rear pinch twist.
This way the centre 5 finger bubble slightly rises in the middle.

Inflate the blush 160 and attach it to the bottom of the nose/mouth section.
make a 4/5 finger bubble and twist into the lower back pinch twist of the head.

I then push the rest of the blush 160 through the front legs for the tummy
until the head still sits in the upright position and then twist the blush into
the back of the body pinch twist.
