Come see my primitive Santa ornament tutorial!!!!!!!!




Hi everyone, today I have been working on Santa ornaments for my trees. This is a really cute primitive ornament to make. I start off with small pine sticks bought from Home Depot. They measure 5/8 x 5/8 and we cut them to be 4 1/2 inches long. I paint them a deep burgundy red. After all the base coating is done I paint a Santa face with a long beard. I seal them with Matte sealer and sprinkle a little glamour dust on the brim of Santa's hat. You always have to have a little sparkle. Drill a hole through the sides of the Santa and attach wire for hanging.  You can see from the picture how cute they look hanging from the tree. I also do this with old fashion cloths pins. Thanks for stopping by to look and I hope you try this project!!!!
