Step 1: Cut a circle from cardboard. Paint it the color you would like for Santa's face and allow it to dry.

Step 2: For Santa's hat, we used the same steps as we used for our Paper Plate Apple Collage and cut it into the shape of a hat. Click here for tutorial.

Step 3: After gluing Santa's hat to the top of the cardboard circle, add facial features from cardstock or paint them! We used a 1 inch paper punch for Santa's eyes and a regular single paper punch for the pupils.

Step 4: Paint textured cardboard white and allow it to dry. Once dry, cut and punch circles. These will be used for Santa's beard and hat details.

Step 5: Glue one circle to the top of Santa's hat.

Step 6: Glue circles of various sizes along the bottom border of Santa's hat.

Step 7: Glue circles to the lower portion of Santa's face for his beard.

Put on some Christmas music, gather the materials and get set for a Christmas crafting session!
