What you need
red paper (2 sheets)
paper cone template – get it here –> Cone Template
1 sheet white paper
black paper for the boots
beige paper for face
Cut the Cone Shape
Print the Cone Template on the sheet of red paper (I’ve used a sheet of paper that is red on both sides). Cut the template. Fold along the dotted line and add glue on the parts that are “sticking out”. Roll it into a cone and hold for a while for glue to do it’s sticky magic.
Cut 4 long strips of red paper (for legs and arms), two red mittens, a whole bunch of white strips (I had 10), two black boots and beige half circle for the face.
Now to assemble this lovely Santa craft. Glue on the black boots onto the end of the red strip. Cut one of the white strips to small peaces and use those to decorate the boots. On the other two red strips glue on the red mittens. Decorate with white strips.
Draw the facial details on the half circle. I used light pink chalk to make the cheeks and think that worked really, really well. Draw the eyes with sharpies.
Beard is the fun part. Take the white strips (leave on as you’ll use it for the hat) and curl them with scissors.
