Draw a carrot-shaped triangle for the nose under the head circle.

Draw two small circles above the nose for the eyes, and several small circles or dots under the nose for the smiling mouth.

Step 6

Draw a curved line above the head circle, then a smaller circle on top to make a hat.

Draw curved lines coming out from the sides of the head for the scarf ends.
