Wood Craft for Christmas - Scroll Saw Project - Santa Claus Garland or Mobile

This little wooden Santa, alone makes a cute decoration for your Christmas tree. Or you can add a star to the top and bottom and make a window decoration or mobile with it. Other than a bit of drying time, he is quickly made. Make a few of them and then you have a little something to take along as a gift if you are invited somewhere during the holidays. The pattern is simple. It is just one piece to cut out and paint. Embellish your Santa according to your taste or to what you may have. You can add beads, buttons and small decorating elements to his hat or to the front of him.
