Christmas and Winter Crafts for Kids - Pom-Pom Santa Claus

Kids will have fun making this project on a cold December afternoon. This cute and fluffy Santa would be pleased to become a part of your Christmas decorations - whether as a table decoration, or high up on a shelf. It does not require a lot of time to craft this project, just a little patience waiting for the glue to dry.

- red yarn
- red felt
- 4 cm wooden ball
- small bit of batting
- 8mm red wooden bead (divided in half for the nose)
- red artist chalks or colored pencil (for blushing the
- circle templates
- thick cardboard for creating templates
- scissors

- old CD to use as a template for creating the Santa
- felt marker or black paint for the eyes


1. Follow the instructions in the pom-pom tutorial below to make the Santa body. The body here is 5 centimeters big.
2. To create the hat, use the CD and trace onto red felt. Cut the circle out and then cut it in half. Take the half and fold it over matching the straight edges until a hat shape is created. Glue the straight edge and let dry. When dry, glue to the top of the wooden bead.
