Santa Craft with pinecones

Wouldn't this look amazing hanging outside on your front door to greet friends and family during the holidays? I just love the way this looks.

A small birch(or white barked tree) piece for the face. Take a piece of heavy cardboard and cut it in the shape of the beard. Take two small nails and nail it to the wood at the top. If it needs more nails..use them.

Take hot glue and LOTS of pinecones. Start placing the pinecones around the cardboard until it forms the look of the beard you see in the picture. Place 2 large pinecones as his mustache and 2 large ones for eyebrows as well. A bit of paint on the birch forms the face details for santa.(If you are lucky enough...look for a piece of wood where a branch has broken and that becomes his nose!)

A simple red hat is then placed on top. VOILA! SANTA!

Prim Blessings!
