|You will need:
Step 1: Cut the bottle in half. First make the man Santa. You decide the size of face you want and make a circle with a pencil.
- 1 bleach bottle
- white yarn
- 12 by 12 flesh felt
- 2 eyes (black felt, buttons, or googly eyes)
- Tool to make small holes in plastic bottle
- 1/4 yard of red material
- 14 inches of curly chenille
- Any material for a ladies collar
Step 2: Make plenty of holes all around the circle.
Step 3: Cut the flesh felt in a circle and glue to the bottle.
Step 4: Now start inserting the white yarn, leaving 2 inches on the holes and 1 inch of yarn on the holes. String the yarn in and out of each hole,(this makes the beard) and the hair line..
Step 5: Add on the eyes and mouth if you have one. Make sure you have yarn going across for the mustache. You may have to cut the mustache to your liking. Take the red material and make a triangle hat. At the tip of the hat add on a bell.
Step 6: Take the red felt and cover the back side of the bottle. Stretch a piece of wire across the back so you can hang it up. Attach the wire to each side real tight.
Step 7: Now you glue on the red hat and glue on the white chenille for the RIM of the hat.
DO THE SAME STEPS FOR THE MRS. SANTA LEAVING OUT THE FOLLOWING: No beard, no mustache. And the last thing for Mrs. Santa is to add on the collar.
Santa and Mrs. Santa can stand by them selves or they can hang on the wall or door.
