Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:
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!
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!
