December craft night - Santa Logs

These Santas turned out so cute. What an easy way to add a little nature to your holiday decorating. 

To make:
Cut a tree branch from the yard into three pieces of varying length. Don't make them larger than your Christmas storage bins. Cut one end of each section flat and the other at 45 degrees. 

Paint the bottom half of each angled face white and the top third red. Add eyes using black paint or a sharpie. Hot glue on a button or small branch nose. 

We used wire to lock our guys together so tightly wrap your logs with wire so they remain together. Then cover the wire with ribbon. Using hot glue to secure everything in place. If you want to learn how to make the perfect Minnie Mouse bow check out this tutorial.
