Supplies Needed for Santa Suit Popsicle Stick Craft
To make this Santa suit you will need the following craft supplies:
- Plain crafting popsicle sticks
- Red paint
- Red String or Yarn
- Glitter Foam Sheets (In white, black, and yellow)
- Ribbon or Decorative String
- A Hole Punch
How to Make These Santa Suit Popsicle Stick Craft
First, start by gluing four popsicle sticks together.
You'll want to glue them all in a row so that they lay flat when they are dry.
After the glue on the popsicle sticks are completely dry, paint them red.
Allow the paint to dry completely.
When the painted popsicle sticks are dry wrap the popsicle sticks with red string or yarn.
Make sure that none of the popsicle stick is showing, except for a little bit of the top and bottom.
Next cut shapes from the glitter foam to create a belt, buckle and suit decoration.
Then glue all of the pieces into place.
You'll want to cut the following pieces:
- A long white strip for the middle of Santa's suit
- A red strip for the belt
- A larger yellow square for the buckle
- A smaller black square for the center of the buckle
- Use a hole punch to make black buttons from the black glitter foam
The long white strip should go down the middle of the Santa suit longways.
The black strip should go across horizontally overlapping the white strip, making Santa's belt.
The yellow square should go on the center of the black strip, and then glue the black square in the middle of the yellow square.
It should look like the photo below.
Next, use a hole punch to create buttons for the santa suit out of the black glitter foam sheet.
Glue 3 buttons onto the white glitter foam sheet.
Make sure that the buttons are fully dried.
Finally loop a ribbon or decorative string and glue onto the back of the ornament.
