But lets not forget our fall shows. I finished up one of my crescent santas on Sunday. This one is a great seller for me so if you want one, let me know in advance because I always sell out. He sells for $34.99 and I will ship him for free! Fabric and beard yarn may vary. Email me and I will send pics of the choices.
As promised, I am also going to give you the FREE instructions on how to make my paintbrush Santa. These are easy, inexpensive and make great ornaments, package tie-ons, or gifts.
Here is what you will need for this project:
Paintbrushes, any size, just make sure they have wooden handles
Wood scraps: teardrops, hearts, stars, etc
Round discs, approx 1 1/2"
Fabric scraps, wire, bells, greenery
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Paint: red, white, flesh toned, gold
Start with any size paintbrush. You can use old paint stained ones that you have in your garage or do like I do and buy a jumbo pack at Walmart or Harbor Freight. The cheaper the better.
Paint the handles front and back your favorite shade of red. I like more primitive barn red or even maroon, but you may prefer bright red if you are more traditional.
While your white paint is drying, paint the discs fleshtone. You only need to paint the fronts and also paint around the diameter. Take a break and let everything dry. Plug in your glue gun.
Assemble all of your dry painted pieces. You will need to glue on the flesh toned disc for the face and fabric for the hat trim. I use scraps of fleece, batting, flannel, etc. Whatever you have. Glue on as pictured.
