I’ve made my list and I’ve checked it twice, and these six Santa crafts are definitely on the “nice” list. Each Santa Claus craft uses a different technique so there’s something for everyone and no one needs to pout. You can make a felt Santa, fabric Santa, paper Santa, air-dry clay Santa and even a birch bark Santa. Click on any of the photos for the project instructions.
I feel calmer every time I look at the Birch Bark Father Christmas. Clad in birch bark and trimmed in moss, this woodland Santa could tame a deer – or soothe frantic Christmas spirits.
Pull out your favorite paper crafting supplies to make Rebekah Meier’s Retro Santa Paper Collage. Holiday papers, brads, tags, and trims make a cute Santa who is perfect for perching on the mantel, window sill, small shelf, or even a tabletop.
If you’re looking to craft an heirloom Santa, this Round & Jolly Folk Art Santa made with air-dry clay is one to treasure. I’ve seen similar Santas in catalogs for big bucks, so hang onto your cash and DIY this one!
Here is one more favorite of mine – Sleepy Santa by Debra Quartermain. I imagine this is how Santa looks after pulling an all-nighter delivering all those toys. He’s tired, clutching a cup of coffee, and dressed in his robe, striped PJs & reindeer slippers!
There are more Santa’s on StyrofoamCrafts.com, so if you’re still looking for that perfect Santa, be sure to check out the collection.
