Today’s project is one that I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now.  A Starfish Santa Craft!  I know this is a craft that has been done a TON of times, but I really wanted to share it with my followers with an easy to follow tutorial.

I made this Santa craft but it’s totally a craft the kids can make too.  As long as you wait until each paint color dries completely your set!  It’s such a simple Christmas craft you can have done in no time!  I think I’ll need to make a snowman next to go with our Santa craft.


Gather up all your materials for this craft. I have a TON of starfish on hand, I just needed to look for the perfect paint colors.

So let’s get crafting!

Step 1 – Paint on Santa’s Suit

I found the perfect color of red for my Santa’s suit.  This color covers well so you will only need one coat.  Let dry 20 minutes.


 Step 2 – Paint Fur

Let’s add the white part now.  You need to make sure the red is 100% dry or your white and red will mix and start looking pink-ish.



Step 3 – Paint in Shoes

After your white paint has dried add your Santa’s shoes.


 Step 4 – Add Hands and Face

I used the DecoArt warm beige for the face and hands.


 Step 5 – Final Details

Now let’s finish off our cute Santa craft by adding his face details and belt!



 Finishing Touches

Is this not the cutest Santa craft ever!!?? I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to make one.

With this Santa craft you can turn it into an ornament, just by glueing some thin ribbon to the top.

I have a special plan I’m doing with this guy that I will be sharing soon.  I’m really excited about it!
