Instead of buying mass-made Christmas decorations at a store in your area, create your very own Santa Claus wall hanging that is three dimensional. You can make this decoration by yourself, or with the help of some older children. Since you are creating the decoration yourself, you can make Santa Claus look traditional or add any twist to his appearance you may desire.

  1. 1

    Draw an outline of Santa Claus on a white sheet of paper using a black marker. Print out a picture of Santa Claus if you cannot draw a picture of him.

  2. 2

    Glue the sheet of paper to a piece of cardboard, then cut out the Santa Claus drawing once the glue dries. Glue wadded up balls of newspaper to the Santa Claus cutout until it is covered completely. Use bigger are more balls of newspaper where Santa should be thicker, such as at the belly.

  3. 3

    Dip one inch wide strips of newspaper into a container of wallpaper glue, then apply them to the front, back and sides of the Santa Clause cutout. Make sure to cover every spot of the cutout.

  4. 4

    Place the cutout in an area where it can dry out for several days. Paint the dried cutout, adding facial features and gluing cotton balls onto the cutout to create a more realistic looking beard.

  5. 5

    Glue a string to the back of the cutout, then hang the decoration from a nail in the wall.
