Santa-makeover

My Santas worshop/house has been resting for a year now, but I started it knowing I might just work on it in the Christmastime, so I think it will take me many years to finish it, but that's all according to the plans =)
I started making a Santa Claus last year. He was finished last year, the 23/12 but has been waiting ever since and finally I finished the post about him.
I saw a doll that was on sale, and I thought he would be perfect as a Santa, with a little modifications =)

First I striped him and gave him better arms (added pipe cleaners)
And then I made a pair of trousers of red felt.
And I added white wool at the end.
And a coat, with some white wool (I used his old clothes as a template for the new ones)
And a cap. Now he just needed to get a bit older, and whiter =)
I painted his hair white..
..and his beard, and the eyebrows, I forgot about that first =) But it made a huge different having white eyebrows instead of brown...
I gave him some beard cut from yarn



And a black ribbon, and he was all finished.

I'm not that happy with the coat, its very stiff and maybe too big. Don't know if I can fix it, until then Santa is just happy to show off his clothes at last.
 





I think Santa is wondering when I'll paint the house, it should be red, but I haven't even started with the paint yet..

 And of course he wishes you a Merry Christmas =)

 
Take care
Hannah

    1. Thank you, and the same to you and your family!
      Many cottages and houses are red here in Sweden, so I think red will suit him in many ways =)

  9. Great makeover. The yarn beard worked brilliantly, I thought it was doll making hair before I read the caption.

    Happy Christmas! x
