If you are making a Santa photo craft you will need to cut out a photograph of your child.


STEP 2: Assemble Santa Craft


Use the craft glue to assemble your mix and match Santa.  Glue the boots to the legs and the mittens to the arms. Then the arms and legs can be attached to the body.

Assemble the belt by gluing the small black square inside the yellow square and attaching it to the long black rectangle. Glue the belt to the body.

Put the hat together by glueing the brim and topper to the triangle hat piece. Glue the hat to the head.
