FIRSTLY, LETS GET YOU A SUPPLY LIST:
- Buffalo Check Place Mat/Dinner Napkin (Dollar Tree)
- Recycled Wood Pumpkin (Dollar Tree)
- Microfiber Dust Rags (Dollar Tree)
- Stuffing (from an old pillow)
- Mop Head (Dollar Tree)
- Paint Brush
- Heat Gun
- Hot Glue Gun
- Farmhouse Holly Berry Picks (Dollar Tree)
SECONDLY, LETS GET INTO MAKING THE CRAFT:
First I take my pumpkin and paint it with 2 coats of my white chalk paint. Afterwords, you can take your heat gun to dry the pumpkin and speed up the process. Next, grab your mop head and begin cutting pieces off to use it as the beard. You’ll then want to take your dust rag and cut it in half. As seen in the video you’ll then take your dinner napkin and fold it in a way that allows you cut one side a little bit longer than the other. Then, you will wrap the napkin around the top half of your pumpkin and glue it onto your board to create the hat.
THIRDLY, LETS PUT THE FINISHING TOUCHES ON THis Santa DIY:
After that, you can take some stuffing and add it into the napkin. Next, take your rag and add it to the bottom part of the napkin to create the brim of the hat. One of the last parts to create the snowman face is glueing the mop head pieces to the bottom of the pumpkin to create the beard. Then glueing some cotton in the middle of the wood for a nose. Lastly, I take my farmhouse floral and glue is onto the brim of the hat.
FINALLY, YOU HAVE MADE A DOLLAR TREE SANTA DIY:
If you know me, you know that I had to make an adorable scrap bow to add to the top of the hat. Finally, you have made an adorable Santa craft. This is a very simple, budget friendly Christmas DIY.
