A visit from the Jolly Old Head Elf Himself!!!
Here is a quick and easy tutorial to make your very own Santa Ornament:
Patterned Paper cut in a quarter circle:
Curly Doll Hair
Decorative Cording or Ribbon
I used American Crafts Slick Writers also available from AC Bailey
Hot Glue Gun
Stickles as desired which are also available at AC Bailey
- Draw a face on your wooden bead with a marker. It doesn’t have to be perfect as most of the face will be covered with the Jolly Old Elf’s beard.
- Attach decorative cording folded in a loop to the top of the bead with hot glue. Make sure your cording is longer than the length of the Old Man’s hat with enough at the end to hang. (see picture for reference). Be sure to use your hot glue liberally so that the bond will support the bead.
- Roll your quarter circle into a cone and glue with hot glue. Attach to the bead with hot glue.
- Cut up the doll hair and attach to the bead in sections with hot glue. This is a very random process; keep adding hair until you like the results. Straighten a little piece of hair and add a little glue above his mouth and fill in his mustache. Trim beard as desired.
