The first instance of wreaths in use can be traced back to the Persian Empire, ancient Egypt, and ancient Greece. However, these cultures didn’t use them to decorate doors and walls; they used them as headdresses. Wearing a laurel wreath was a symbol of power, authority, honour, or victory. Often, they were adorned by Olympic athletes, priests, brides, victorious warriors, and guests of honour. Source: Agriculture for Life – The History of the Christmas Wreath

  • Small White Washcloths
  • Embroidery Hoop or Wire Clothes Hanger
  • Large Wiggle Eyes
  • White Pipe Cleaner
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Cotton Balls
  • Red Felt or Foam
  • Red Pipe Cleaner
  1. Cut washcloths into strips 1/2 inch wide. Tie with a half hitch knot onto the embroidery hoop to form the beard and hair.
  2. Print the pattern and cut hat out of red felt or foam. Place pins holding the pattern inside the hat area. This will keep the pattern stable until you finish cutting.
  3. Glue to the top of the embroidery frame overlapping Santa’s hair.
  4. Glue cotton balls to form brim and tassel on Santa’s hat.
  5. Cut white pipe cleaner in two lengths that will allow the wiggle eyes to hang just below the end of Santa’s hair. Glue Wiggle eyes to end of each pipe cleaner. Glue a piece of pipe cleaner horizontally to the ends of each pipe cleaner to give the eyes stability.
  6. Glue to the back of the embroidery hoop just below Santa’s hat.

Form a loop out of the red pipe cleaner so you can hang your Santa Wreath from a door knob or hook.

Have a Merry Christmas
