I made these Santa's tonight.
They are laying down drying so the picture is awful.
My recipe:
styrofoam cones
red velvet (i bought 1/2 yard and will have leftovers after the 3rd cone)
Hair stuff from doll aisle at hob lob
black vinyl (i bought 1/2 yard but 1/8 would be enough for 3)
38 piece pack of jewels from jewelry aisle (will need more for #3)
Aileens tacky glue
1.I rolled the cone on the fabric and cut (sloppy) & glued it down
2.I pinned and glued the white stuff on
3.for the top i rolled it around my finger a couple of times to make it fuller
used glue and pins
4. i cut the vinyl for belt free hand and glued it around the velvet
5. glue the jems on in the shape of a belt buckle.
These were $20+ each at one store in town, estimate $22 -24 dollars for all 3 of mine. Not to shabby if I say so myself!
I will post a picture of all 3 when I get another cone, so you can see how beautiful the red velvet is.
We are supposed to get 2-4 inches of snow tomorrow night. This will be the first white Christmas in years. I just hope we aren't stuck at home eating ham sandwiches.
Coco just ran in and asked where our Santa plate is.
I told her oh we don't have any cookies.
She said "we have cookie dough"
I said "you want to leave him cookie dough?"
She said "yes"
Santa says "I don't like cookie dough"
We might have to buy some cookies already made tomorrow.
Maybe I will ask Santa to do that while I am work

I love it Pam! I saw that at Thrifty Decor Chick and knew I would be making those for next year. Great job. Yours look fantastic!

I can't wait for the snow. I'm so excited. We have a ton of finger foods lined up for Christmas day! ;o)

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

I came back to look at your Santa's. I had an idea today. I've been wanting to do something with our plain stockings. I posted them tonight. I thought I'd add a cute Santa belt like you did to the cones...what do you think? Or a monogram, but I don't know what color. Can you help?
