Instructions

  1. Gather together all of your suppliesDIY santa ornament supplies
  2. Paint the top of your terracotta pot with white paint to create a snow effect
  3. Print out your templates and cut your felt as per the image below
  4. Use hot-glue to attach the belt and glue the yellow buckle on top followed by a small black square for the inner buckle.
  5. Turn the piece over so the belt is facing down and glue the leg reinforcements into position as shown…
  6. Cut your festive string to your desired length (approx 10 inches) bring the ends together and tie a knot. With the belt still facing down, secure the string to the piece using hot-glue as shown…
  7. Paint the boots on both the front and rear of the piece
  8. Once the paint has dried, secure the two boot trims to the piece starting at the front and ending on the rear of the piece as shown…
  9. Now it’s time to glue up the body. With the belt facing down, fold one side over and glue along the line where the leg meets the body. Repeat for the other side and then join the two sides together. You should be left with just one opening which will be used to fill Santa’s Belly
  10. Fill with toy stuffing (there’s no need to glue up the edge as this will be placed inside the pot)
  11. Line the inside of the pot with hot-glue
  12. Squeeze Santa’s giant belly inside the pot and then hang proudly on your Christmas tree!

Notes

Use gloves and exercise caution when using a hot glue gun as they can burn fingers.
