A Cute Santa Claus made with Kunin Felt.
While at the Creativation Show last January in Phoenix,
I saw an adorable Gnome project at the Kunin Felt Booth made entirely from felt.
I fell in love with the project and knew immediately that I wanted to make it over into a
Santa Claus to make with the ladies during my annual Sue’s Holiday Workshop.
(I asked the Gnome’s designer Debra Quartermain and got her blessing.)
I only changed the directions a little bit to make the Santa Claus.
Here’s what I used:
- 9″ x 12″ Kunin Red Corduroy Felt
- Kunin White Craft Felt
- Two Small Pom Poms
- Beacon Fabri-Tac Adhesive* or Felt Glue
- Pencil or Marker for Tracing
- Gnome Pattern
- Tan Marker
- Small Wood Snowflake painted white
- Download and print the Gnome Pattern from the Kunin Blog.
- Trace pattern pieces onto red and white felt and cut out.
- I made my Santa Hat a little larger than the hat used on the Gnome pattern.
- Roll red hat into a cone and glue.
- Glue white pom pom onto the tip of the hat. You may need to snip the tip before gluing.
- Roll Santa body into a cone and overlap ends and glue.
- Lay beard in place on body.
- Place hat over beard (refer to picture) and adjust if needed.
- Glue both pieces into place.
- Glue mustache pieces to beard.
- Lightly add a little color using the tan marker to a white pom pom.
- Glue pom pom to the center of the mustache.
- Cut long, thin strips of white felt.
- Glue strips of felt onto the top brim of the hat and onto the bottom of the Santa body.
- Glue wood snowflake onto the Santa hat.
A special thanks to Debra Quartermain and Kunin Felts for this adorable project.
