I will now be taking preorders on my Belsnickle Santa's on my website. Remember they can be painted anyway you wish. The other day I was thinking one painted in lighter shades of green or tan for spring or an Americana themed one. The possibilities are endless. I can't wait!
I just love crafting. I love being creative trying new things but sometimes it gets out of hand. I think I could actually have a craft store in my basement of all the supplies I have on hand. Recently, I found a new crafting love.
As I was decorating for Christmas and putting out my Santa's I thought how nice it would be to have some "real" Belsnickle Santa's. Well, they are way out of my price range. I am very thrifty when it comes to decorating as you all know. So, the search was on. What could I do to have what I want? I found some unfinished paper mache Santa's online. They were pretty reasonably priced so I thought what the heck. If I mess them up I won't be out a lot of money. I purchased 3 of them back in November. The box came I opened them and then sat them on my craft table. I couldn't get the nerve up to paint them. I am by no means a painter. ughhh I am a stitcher! lol. Well, the other day I thought what the heck let's give it a try. I painted my first one.
Hmmm... that wasn't so bad. It actually came out pretty good. Let's try another.
I love him too! I'm not too shabby at painting...
This guy was a bit more challenging and smaller. That's why he was last. lol. Leave the most difficult for last. He turned out pretty good too!
Let me just say I LOVE painting these guys! I think other people liked them too as the red and mustard ones sold! WOW! So I ordered more of these guys to paint in my spare time. LOL
If you are interested in the green one he is $34 plus shipping and is 9 1/4" tall.
