Place each doll pin into a doll pin stand to make them easier to work with.
Use a paintbrush to paint the head of the doll pin with Flesh Tone.
Use a paintbrush to paint the top section of the doll pin, about 1/4" above where the pin splits, with Santa Red.
Use a paintbrush to paint the belt on with Cool White, just below the red jacket and above the split.
Turn the doll pins upside down so that the head is inserted into the doll pin stand. Use a paintbrush to paint the remaining doll pin (legs) below the belt with Ebony Black. Use a paintbrush to paint inside the split of the doll pins.
When everything is dry, remove the doll pins from the stands. Use a paintbrush to paint the stands with Antique Gold.
Use a toothpick dipped in Antique Gold to add eight buttons to the black jacket in four rows of two.
Use any paintbrush to add white glue to the inside of the doll pin stands and insert the soldiers into the stands.
Use a toothpick to dot on Ebony Black for eyes and the end of a paintbrush to add Baby Pink for the cheeks.
Carefully trim one side of a black pom-pom to make one side flatter. Use hot glue to attach the flat end of the pom-pom to the top of the soldier’s head, adding a little hot glue to the sides as well so that you can press the sides of the hat in place.
