How To Make Celebrity Christmas Decorations: A Step By Step Illustrated Guide

Updated on December 8, 2007


This 'George Clooney Santa' certainly brings a whole new meaning to Christmas Celebration. Say goodbye to that sterotypical old man from the North Pole, and usher in a new tradition of star decorations this Christmas! If it was good enough for the three wise men to follow a star, well then it should be good enough for you. Here are some step by step directions to creating your own sexy decorations this year! Not only do they look great, but they're garanteed to have your neigbours talking too.

What You Will Need:

  • A selection of celebrity oriented magazines, lovingly collated over weeks, months, or possibly years. Magazines found in doctor's waiting rooms can provide charming pictures from the mid 90's which can give your decorations a 'vintage' touch.
  • Markers, crayons, colored pencils, paints, any and all manners of coloring upon paper could possibly be used.
  • Construction Paper/White Paper
  • Tape/Glue
  • Scissors (or if you're really fancy, you can use one of those exacto/stanley knives for that extra clean cut look)
  • A sense of creativity


Pick your favorite christmas celebrity, and find a good photograph of them. As an alternative to magazines, you can download pictures off the Internet and cut out the face.

Like so...


Once you have the face, draw yourself a little hat and color it in with your markers, crayons, or whatever else you've chosen to use. To save yourself some time, and for a more 'professional' look, you could fashion a hat out of white and red construction paper, but really, if you wanted professional decorations, you wouldn't be doing this, now would you?


Draw a body to match and color it in as well.

(Substep Three: Discover that your marker is dying, and that the store is now closed. Persevere with the dried out marker for a while before licking the tip and filling your mouth with the slightly sweet chemical taste of marker. This totally works, but may possibly be carcinogenic, and there is a limit to how many times you can lick the tip before you start rubbing through the paper and making a complete mess of things.)


Carefully cut out the body and the hat and place in the proper positions around the celebrity head. (The body is traditionally located somewhere under the chin and the hat should sit atop the head. Though other configurations are possible, it is doubtful that your art will be appreciated by others, unless they happen to also be conceptual artists, or maybe run a gallery, in which case you might be able to exhibit your work there and possibly sell it for far too much money.)

Et Voila!

George Clooney is no ready to hang in your home and impress your family and friends!
