santa...red and green pipe cleaners


 I scanned the santa face to my computer
then I opened it into  my Print Master program
 I bought at Target..
I set up an Avery project for a--return label -- added the santa face   
above
when I added it to the Avery label 'space'
I didn't fill the whole label I
 made it a smaller size 
then the return label ..
then when it printed out it was a full 11 x 8.5 sheet
 (as that Avery return label sheet is) it was a full sheet ..
multiple faces.. 
this is what I did 
wasn't the easiest..but 
all I can say is do what you can to make the faces approx. 1 inch high by 1/2 inch wide..after they are trimmed they are smaller (:)


 I found the chenille pipe cleaners  at 
Hobby lobby..
the red  and green fat bumpy ones
 plus some regular red pipe cleaners for the arms...
below is what you'll need
printed out santa faces ..they will be rectangular so
cut them duh (:)
out around the head and beard..
 wire cutters
 needle nose pliers
 scissors
 tacky glue

 cute out the faces
above



two santas
 one p cleaner is the hat..body..legs..feet
 can be made from the one cleaner
put the thin part over your finger ..bend it 
 cut off the foot


 bend the feet up a little


 add the arms behind the neck area..
 twist it around you may have to scoot it down
 a little after it on




















 snip the tree



 twist the red hand around the tree base tightly


 with needle nose pliers curl up the empty hand some
 glue the face on

  4. Hi Patty! Thanks for the step-by-step! People like me need that. That little tree in Santa's hand is so cute!

    Looks like you are going to have a lot of Santa's around this season :) I'd use them as ornaments for my tree.

    Thanks for telling me about this!
