Supplies Needed to Make a Santa Craft Card
– Paint for Santa’s face – we used this color

Steps to Make A Santa Craft Card
1. First print out the Santa template (you can get the template emailed to you as a free gift by signing up to our newsletter on the form with the preview of the Santa template).
You can also free-hand draw the shapes below.
2. Cut out the template elements. Then trace around your template elements on red glitter paper for the hat and white cardstock for the face.
3. For the Santa face, fold your cardstock in half and then trace the face part of the template so that the card will open up.
4. Paint the face.
5. Glue the hat to the top of the face. Now you can start adding your cotton balls to make the brim of the hat. Glue the cotton balls all of the way around the face, leaving a portion to add the eyes and nose.
5. Now glue on the two googly eyes and a small red pom pom for the nose. Add a white pom pom to the top of the hat. We also added two cotton balls to the side of the pom pom nose for a mustache.
6. Write “Merry Christmas” or another special Christmas message inside.
