Use a sharpie marker for the eyes and eyebrows... so much easier to control than paint! The accessories really make these soldiers! Add things like gold ribbon and felt to the hat. We even used a pot scrubber as the topper to the hat!

If you're nervous about making these guys, start with smaller pots first! They look really cute on a mantle too!
