How to make the Santa Ornament
- Remove the cap from each ornament. Using a funnel, fill the clear ornament full with snow pebbles. Replace the cap.
- Wrap chenille stems around the cap of the ornament to create a loose spiral. Remove the chenille stems and set aside. Creating this spiral helps create a neater wrap around the ornament.
- Using glue, attach the chenille stems in circular rows beginning at the cap of the ornament and covering about 1/4 of the ornament with the chenille stems.
- To one side, attach a pom pom with glue. (Tip: Choose an area where the chenille stems do not look their best to hide the imperfections.)
- Once the hat is completely set, paint a half circle beginning at the edge of the hat and curving to create the face area. Allow the face to dry completely.
- Using glue, attach the eyes.
- Between the eyes, use a cotton swab to dab a tiny circle of red paint for the nose. Allow to dry completely before hanging.
This Santa is super adorable. Such a festive addition to your holiday decorations!
