Santa Star Ornament

By:

A great Christmas craft to decorate your tree is this santa star ornament. It's cute, it's modern and it'll make your tree look great. You could also use it as a wall decoration too.

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM* Brand Products:
    • Star, 6" (3-1/2")
  • Yarn, baby-weight white
  • Fabric, 12" (6") square red or green, solid or print
  • Acrylic craft paint: white, red, green, black, peach (and rose)
  • Felt, 9" x 12" brushed white
  • Ribbon, 3/8" (1/4") wide, 30" (24") red or green grosgrain, velvet or satin
  • Beads: two 5mm (4mm) black seed beads; one 5mm (4mm) pink or pearl; two 8mm (none) pink or pearl
  • Sequins
  • Pom poms, one 5/8" (1/2") white
  • Fineline marker
  • Wooden skewer
  • Paintbrush
  • Thick, white craft glue or low temperature glue gun and glue sticks

 

Instructions:

  1. Paint star tips: black feet; white, red or green gloves. Paint faces peach. On small Santas, paint rose cheeks and use marker to draw on smile.
     
  2. Cover star with fabric and determine where face will be; cut a small hole to expose face - approximately quarter-size for 6" Santa and dime-size for small Santa. Spread glue on top and sides of star but not on painted corners; place fabric on glue; smooth out wrinkles. Clip fabric at corners and tips of star, exposing painted areas. Press fabric smoothly onto sides and back; trim excess fabric at back.
     
  3. Glue 3/8" (1/4") ribbon across center for belt; add sequin buckle. Cut felt into narrow strips for cuffs at wrists and ankles. Glue pom-pom to tip of hat. Let dry.
     
  4. To make beard, spread a thin layer of glue over lower portion of face. Using skewer, poke a continuous strand of yarn into face every 1/8" - 1/4", making smaller loops near face and gradually larger loops near chin. Let dry. To finish face, glue on seed bead eyes, nose and cheeks for 6" Santa.
     
  5. Tie 6" length of ribbon into loop; glue to back of hat for hanger.
