Ornament Countdown – Day 4

The journey continues on revealing an ornament from my collection (see related post).

Day 4: 2001 Santa Bulb


  • White Christmas lightbulb
  • Red felt
  • Quilt batting
  • White pom pom
  • Paints: flesh, white, black, red
  • Pink blusher
  • Hot glue
  • Ribbon to hang the ornament

Instructions: Start by painting Santa’s face. Paint a small circle with the flesh color for the main area. Use black to add eyes and a mouth. Use red to add a nose, and white to add a moustache. Cut a cone shape from the red felt and form into the hat; tack shut with glue. Glue to the top of the light bulb. Cut a piece of quilt batting to form the brim of Santa’s hat. Glue a pom pom to the top. Add a ribbon to hang the ornament.
