This year for Christmas I wanted a nice and simple craft that just screamed cuteness, and I think I hit the mark. This easy DIY paper mache Santa craft is just what the craft doctored ordered for the upcoming Christmas. You will have these done in no time and you’ll be itching to make more. Plus, you’ll have more time to make other handmade decorations or crafts for the holidays. Let’s get started and see just how simple these are to make.

Step 1. To begin your Santa craft. Using the cream colored acrylic paint, make an upside down half circle for the face.
Step 2. Paint the remaining parts of the cone the color you want your Santa to be.
I just can’t stand how cute these are. I seriously want to make 50 more and put them everywhere around my house, especially since they’re such a breeze to make. My girls are trying to see who gets what Santa already. I just might have to make all 50! Have fun making this Santa craft that is just too cute for words. 🙂 If you’re looking for other holiday projects using these paper mache cones, check out these glitter topiaries DIY holiday decorations.
