Pebbles: Merry Santa

Happy Monday! Last week on the Pebbles blog, several members of the design team shared projects for holiday gift giving. Today, I have a whimsical Santa to share with you using the fun and bright "Welcome Christmas" collection.

I put a little twist on the traditional tree shape to create a Santa that anyone could love and add to their holiday home decor! I covered a foam cone (tree shape) with various patterned papers and cardstock and then embellished Santa's hat and face with embellishments from the "Welcome Christmas" collection. It was easy to create Santa's beard, mustache and top of his hat with hot glue and cotton balls.

Here's a little close-up of Santa. I mixed together a little flesh colored paint and then outlined Santa in grey. It took me forever to figure out what I wanted to do for Santa's mouth and nose. At first, I had a wooden button for his nose but it might Santa look strangely like a pig so then I had an epiphany and gave him a cherry red nose with a brad. (Duh, right?) :) The mouth is a little section of a border sticker.
