Gift decoration

Are you looking for a clever idea to decorate your gifts? No problem! We can help you. You probably have the materials you need for this quick handicraft tip at hand. So let’s not waste time and get going!

This is what you need:

Small balloons, cotton wool, bast threads, red crepe paper, Pelikan Wonderliner, black card and 2 felt balls.

Utensils:
scissors and adhesive

 

To start, download the pattern and transfer onto the black card and cut out the arms and the feet. Blow up the balloons.

 


Pattern for downloading for the arms and the feet

Use the adhesive to stick the feet to the balloons.

Use the black Wonderliner to draw the eyes on to the felt balls. An alternative would be to paint the eyes directly on to the balloon. Then stick the felt balls to the balloons.

For the hat, we need a piece of crepe paper in the form of a tube: Sew the long side together and tie the end up with a bast thread. Stick the open end on to the balloon. Please note it is easier to stick the balloon on to the crepe tube.

Stick the cotton wool round the head and the chin of the Santa Claus.

Finally after sticking on the arms, make a mouth from the crepe paper and stick this on. The Santa Claus is then glued on to the gift box.


This inventive Santa Claus gift decoration is now finished!
