Wine Cork Santa Claus

Who can believe that this Santa is made out of a recycled wine cork? Kids will have fun making this cute Christmas craft for the holidays. It is a really easy project and is finished with a couple of hours.



Wine Cork Santa Claus

For this project you will need:

- wine cork
- red and flesh acrylic paint
- 5mm red wooden bead (for the nose)
- pair of 6mm wiggly eyes
- 25 mm round styrofoam of pressed paper ball
- 3 soft white feathers
- white chennile stems (pipe cleaner stems)
- red construction paper
- small white pompom
- hot glue gun (parents or supervisors should assist the children when using a hot glue gun) - or use strong craft glue as an
  alternative for younger kids
- paint brushes

Ages 10 and older


1. Paint the cork red and set aside to dry.
2. Paint the styrofoam or paper ball in flesh color and set aside to dry.
3. Create a Santa hat by following the instructions below in the step-by-step pictures. Wrap white chenille around the brim of the hat when it is dry and a small white pom pom on hte top of the hat.
4. Glue the wiggly eyes on the face.
5. Be careful for this step. Use scissors and “cut” the wooden ball in half. This is done by placing the scissors over the middle over the hole and pressing down. This will split the wooden ball in half.
6. Paint the wooden ball with the flesh color and set aside to dry.
7. Dry brush the cheeks with pink paint. This is done by dipping a stiff brush in the paint and wiping the paint off onto a paper towel until almost no more paint comes off the brush. Then pounce the brush onto the cheeks. Continue until the intensity you want is achieved.
8. Glue the head onto the body body.
9. Glue one white feather onto the side of the face so that the soft part of the feather is facing down. Cut away excess feather at the top of the head.
10. Now do the same with the second feather.
11. Glue on a feather as a beard.
12. Glue the hat onto the head.
13. Glue the nose onto the face.
