As the holiday season draws near, many people are getting into the festive spirit. One way to do that is by making a Santa list ornament! This craft is easy and fun for everyone in the family to enjoy. Here’s how you can make one too!
How to make a Santa list ornament
- Wooden spool
- Yarn or Ribbon
- Acrylic paint
- A small strip of paper
- Glue or hot glue gun
Cut the strip of paper to fit around the spool. Let the older kids write their Christmas list on the strip of paper.
You can also use a printer to print the list. My son added the year and “Dear Santa” to his list. He used a green pen.
The green ink didn’t show up in the pictures, so he wrote another list in black for me. Thank you, Jackson! Don’t write all of the ways down the paper.
Leave some white space so you can curl it up.
Paint the spool. I used an extra paintbrush to hold the spool while I painted it. You can also mix 1 part water with 1 part paint, stir it and drop the spool in.
Roll it around until it is completely covered. Lay it on a paper towel to dry.
After the spool dries completely, glue the list to the center. I used a drop of hot glue
To finish the ornament, lace the yarn or ribbon through the hole in the spool and tie a loop knot.
Make a second loop knot at the other end. Use a pair of scissors to curl the tail of the list.
Now you have a fun and festive Santa list ornament to hang on your Christmas tree or display in your home.
