Day 23- Creation Station Christmas Countdown

Santa Spoon


You will need:

  • A wooden spoon
  • Wiggly eyes
  • Cotton Wool
  • Tissue paper/Crepe Paper
  • Glitter
  • Buttons
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Pom poms
  • Glue
  • Double sided tape
  • … all the materials listed above are optional, you could use any selection of collage materials to decorate your spoon.

Step One

Give your Santa some arms by twisting a pipe cleaner around the handle of the spoon. Make sure to leave an equal length either side of the handle. You can then us these to attach his red clothes to. To make these you can use either tissue paper or crepe paper or even fabric. Add a belt by cutting a thin strip of black paper.

Step Two

Build up his beard and hair using either cotton wool or tissue paper.

Step Three

Cut out a triangle of red paper to make his hat. Add a pom pom or some more cotton wool on top of his hat.

Step Four

Finally bring him to life by gluing on some wiggly eyes and adding a mouth.

Your Santa spoon is now finished. You could stand him up in your window or outside your door to make sure Santa stops by to deliver your presents.
