This cute craft stick Santa Claus ornament is made with very few supplies. Put him together in an afternoon. It makes a great Christmas present!
1. Jumbo craft sticks are available at craft supply stores. 2. Save scraps of felt for projects such as these. 3. Write your child's name and the date on the back of the ornament as a keepsake.
Paint craft stick white.
Paint a 1" peach section at the top of the craft stick for the face.
Paint the rest of the craft stick red.
Paint the top of the craft stick red for the hat.
Use a scruffy paintbrush to dab on some pink paint for cheeks.
Paint a black strip across the center of the craft stick for the belt.
Paint the bottom 1" of the craft stick black.
After all paint has dried, use a toothpick dipped in gold paint to add a belt buckle. Dip the handle end of a paintbrush into the gold paint and dot on two buttons above the belt.
Cut three strips from white felt using the pattern. Glue strips directly above the black boots, below the red hat, and about ½" below the black belt. Cut a beard from the white felt pattern and glue it to the face.
Dot on two eyes with black marker.
Glue pom-pom to the top of the hat.
Glue yarn to the back in a loop for the hanger.
