Directions to make Popsicle Stick Santa Craft

Begin by cutting out pieces of Santa’s hat in red, approximately 5 x 6 centimetres in size, as well as a small strip in black and two small rectangles (yellow and black) for the belt.

Ensure you have cotton swabs, googly eyes, and a red pom-pom at the ready.

Next, arrange four popsicle sticks side by side and secure them together with tape. Flip this arrangement over and use it as the base. Outline and attach the red hat on top.

Attaching sticks and hat together

Proceed to paint the lower part of the body in red, leaving the face unpainted. The red section should cover less than 2/3rd of the total length.

Once the paint has dried, affix the belt at the centre of the red area. Then, attach the yellow rectangle to the black strip and place the black rectangle on top of it.

After all the pieces are securely attached, it’s time to add the beard using cotton. Create a triangular beard shape and glue it in place with white glue.

Additionally, roll some cotton to create a slender, narrow cotton strand and glue it to the bottom of the hat. Roll another small ball of cotton and attach it to the top of the hat.

Finally, attach the googly eyes and the red pom-pom as the nose.
