Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cut Styrofoam ball in half.
  • 2
    Cover Styrofoam ball in Winking White.
  • 3
    Make the features of Santa's face with Cookie Dough, Midnight Madness and Winking White. The base of Santa's face is about 10 inch long; his eyes and nose are the shape of a coin. (See photo for reference.)
  • 4
    Put Santa's face together.
  • 5
    Place Santa's face onto the Duck Tape-covered Styrofoam ball.
  • 6
    To make the hat, cover the top half of Santa's face in Cha Cha Cherry. Leave a 1-1/2 inch space between the hat and the face.
  • 7
    For Santa's hat, draw and cut out a cloud shape on a piece of Winking White. Set aside.
  • 8
    Make a piece of Duck Tape fabric in Cha Cha Cherry that measures 9 inch wide and 10 inch tall. To make Duck Tape fabric, lay a strip of Duck Tape, sticky side up, on your cutting board. Lay the next strip so it slightly overlaps the other. Continue until you have a piece that measures your desired length and width. Take it and turn it sideways so the strips are going left to right. Lay the next strips, sticky side down, going up and down so it is laying the opposite direction. Trim off any excess.
  • 9
    Draw a triangle on your Duck Tape fabric and cut it out.
  • 10
    Tape the cloud shape you made in step 7 on top of your triangle and place the hat to the back of Santa’s head with strips of Duck Tape.
  • 11
    To create Santa's beard, cut pieces of Winking White that measures 4 inch long and fold these in half. You will need about 80 strips.
  • 12
    Form your strips into loops and tape it to Santa's face. Make sure to fill up his beard and the area between his hat and face.
  • 13
    For the chains that hang from Santa’s beard, cut a 7 in. long piece of Winking White, fold it in half lengthwise and make it into a loop.
  • 14
    Repeat step 13 until you have five chains with five links on each chain.
  • 15
    Hang the chains from the bottom of Santa’s beard. These are the links you will cut for each day in December.
