Who knew Santa could be so darling as a stick figure? I love the idea of using balsa wood because you can source it affordably from anywhere. I love the decoration ideas, and I can think of so many ways to use Santa. I want to give away poinsettias and put him in the dirt even. I think that would be so cute.

I just made a similar Santa using a ceiling fan blade, a Dollar Store hat, flesh colored paint, wooden nose, button eyes, floral Christmas pick, glue & glitter. Then sprayed an acrylic clear coat to avoid the glitter from falling off.

tried to print out directions and was unable also tried to save project and got same results. am i doing something wrong?
