This is a paper mache project that we have done with the 6th grade classes. To make this santa you’ll need a plastic bottle that has shoulders on it (Dawn bottles used to be like this, but now we just look for bottles with “shoulders.” Also needed are newspaper strips, pipe cleaners and paper mache paste (recipe included.) Find the complete pictured tutorial for this “Old World Santa,” in the Christmas Projects Gallery, in the sidebar.
Happy New Year, and congratulations! I wanted to let you know that you made it onto our list of The Top 100 Kids' Craft Ideas of 2014.
