Christmas is a great time of year to dig out the crafts and make homemade ornaments with the kids. These ornaments are very easy and inexpensive to make.. . .
Paint the dowel piece red, leaving a bit of natural wood color showing for the facial area of your santa. Paint the face, add a beard, mustache, let it dry. Using a q-tip dab the paint onto the top of santa’s face, creating a hat, then add a pom pom using dabs of white paint. Alternatively, you could hot glue a mini white pom-pom onto the santa hat.
Add a few wisps of bangs coming out from under the hat.
If desired paint a sprig of holly near the top and add 3 little dots for holly berries. Let it dry, screw in an eye hook screw and attach a piece of ribbon or thread to hang the ornament.
