Make Your Own Yarn and Felt Santa Face

You see Santa everywhere during the Christmas season. Now you can make your very own Santa face to decorate your home. This jolly Santa is made with a bleach bottle as the base. You cut it and then add felt for his face and yard for the beard, hair, mustache, and eyebrows. The red hat finishes it off.

I've included two videos so you can follow the steps in making this. Also, I've included still photos so you can examine the structure. My parents made dozens of these over the years and gave them to all their children and even sold them at craft shows.

I treasure mine and look forward each year to getting it out of my Christmas storage and putting it on display.

Start with a Gallon Size Bleach Bottle

Rinse the bottle out well and let it air dry. Cut the bottle in half from top to bottom using a craft knife, like an exacto knife. Be very careful.

Cut the Bleach Bottle Down Each Side and Across the Bottom

Here's What the Back Looks Like

This view shows how the pipe cleaners are tied into the holes of the bleach bottle. This is how the yarn is attached for the beard. The part with the handle of the bleach bottle gets covered with the Santa hat.
