Melinda made this wonderful, whimsical Santa Tree. It
would make any yard a real showstopper!
Small toys (search bottom of toy box!)
High gloss red paint
Red Christmasy fleece
Large black garbage bag
Yellow fun foam
Toys: Attach long wire to toys so they can be wired to a
tree. Spray toys completely with high gloss red paint. If
you don't have enough toys, fill in with a few red bows.
Hat: Make the hat from fleece (sort of like an ice cream
cone). Glue or staple white batting along the bottom edge.
For the pom, cut a large circle of batting, baste around edges and
gather. Sew or glue to tip of hat. Add wire to both sides of
Beard: Cut a beard shape from white batting and attach wire to
Belt: Cut a garbage bag open full length. Wrap it around
5" wide cardboard for stability. Cut a square hole from a
5" square piece of yellow fun foam for belt buckle and glue to
belt. Attach wire at 18" intervals of belt.
Assembly: Wire pieces to tree or bush as shown in the
picture. Or put pieces in Santa's burlap bag with poem.
