Craft Stick / Popsicle Stick Santa Claus

Have the children been good this year? Santa is waiting for the day of his special appearance! This Santa Claus craft stick makes a nice tree decoration and kids will have fun making him. It has a few more details than the Popsicle Stick Reindeer or the Popsicle Stick Snowman but he is worth the time and effort put into the project!

4. Just under the hat, draw lightly with a pencil a half circle and paint within this line with peach color. Let the paint dry. Glue the bead on for his nose!
5. Under the peach color, decide how long you want his beard and paint this area with white snowpaint.
