This Santa has all the requisite characteristics: fluffy beard, twinkling eyes, and a red hat with jingle bell tassels. The only thing missing is his sleigh loaded with presents.
This shimmering chipboard star will add a vintage look to your Christmas decor. Start with a small chipboard star and trace the shape onto old sheet music. Cut out the music and glue to the glossy white side of the star. Use an ink blending tool to spread raised felt dye ink onto the star, blending it into the center. Secure a Santa face to the star using two adhesive dots. Cut a small strip from ecru scrapbook paper (making inverted V cuts into each end), accordion-fold ends to match the picture, and glue across Santa's beard. Print Merry Christmas on a separate strip of ecru paper and glue to banner.
Cover a large chipboard star with double-sided adhesive tape, trimming the excess. Adhere the smaller star to the larger one with two adhesive dots. Sprinkle ultrafine German glass glitter over the large star, shaking off the excess. To hang, punch a hole in the large star and add a wire hook.
The patina of this Santa gives him an aged look, but painted polka dots and stripes give the sculpture modern appeal. Follow our step-by-step instructions for molding, sculpting, and painting this keepsake trinket box.

Go ahead, judge this book by its cover. Download our free reindeer pattern, trace onto white felt, and cut out. Open the book so it lies flat. Cut felt around the open book, allowing for an extra inch on each side. Wrap the ends around the book and bond the edges together. Glue the reindeer silhouette on the front.
Use a window sill to capture this scene straight from the North Pole -- Santa hanging out with his reindeer pal on a snowy landscape. The twig-and-felt figurines are held together with hot glue, but with this easy-to-make project, you can sub in crafts glue and make it with kids.
Use our free pattern and a purchased needle punching kit (from a crafts store) to create this classic portrait of Father Christmas.

This classic kids' craft is easy to master and can occupy little hands while you check things off your Christmas to-do list. Simply paint (or color with markers) flat crafts sticks brown; let dry. Glue the tips of two sticks together to form a V shape, and glue a third stick horizontally across the top of the V. Glue a red pom-pom nose and plastic eyes to make the face, and add a ribbon hanger when dry.
