My life motto seems to be how can I make this harder? 😛 I found a really cute Christmas countdown that I modified, to make more complicated! I did not design the beard with the numbers but I did make templates to add some layers to the craft.
Copy the mustache and trim for the hat on to white paper and cut out. Copy the hat shape on to red paper and cut out. I used a circle punch for the nose and the pom pom for the hat. I colored Santa’s face with colored pencils. Glue all the parts to the paper with the numbered beard. Use whatever method you prefer to fill in circles as Christmas nears.
Another craft idea from Paper Magic Reny! Hot Chocolate Mugs!
I cut two wide strips of patterned paper and glued them together. I cut two narrow strips of patterned paper and glue them together. Fold the ends of the narrow strip like show to make a handle. Glue the wide strips into a tube shape and glue on handle. I used a circle punch for the eyes and nose. I free hand cut the mouth.
First Palette has many free templates that I have used for different crafts over the years.
Using the cone template we made Christmas Trees.
Print the template on patterned or plain paper. Cut out and glue along edge. Embellish as desired.
Using the birthday hat template we made a New Year’s Hat.
