Step 3. Watch my Video for Tips

After making a few Santas, I learned the following:

  • Work on a craft mat to protect your table
  • Use a ruler to measure your cotton cording
  • Use sharp fabric scissors to shape the beard
  • If you have wooden embellishments in your scrapbook stash, get those out to use them up
  • Snowflakes, reindeer, hearts, bells, etc. all make cute decorations for his hat
  • Save your toilet paper rolls or wrapping paper cardboard for the hat brim
  • Add a dollop of clear drying glue to the white beard cording to hold it in place
  • Use a pet comb to untangle the cording, start near the bottom of the beard
