Make a Santa key ornament to hang on your tree and to also provide Santa the magic needed to access your home if a chimney isn’t an option.
I’ve been saving keys for quite awhile, but after finding a box of them at a yard sale this summer, I thought I had better come up with a plan. I decided to make Santa keys for craft shows.
When I was a kid we didn’t have a fireplace so my parents told me Santa had a magic key. I believed them, but I never saw a magic key…until now. 😉
To be honest, I didn’t make them to be “magic” Santa keys. I just thought they were cute ornaments. However, they were a huge success at my craft shows as magic keys.
Things You Will Need:
Acrylic craft paint-red, peach, pink, black and white
Snow texture paint
Christmas fabric scrap
What To Do:
Paint both sides and the edges of the key red. Allow the paint to dry.
Use the photo as a guide for painting the face.
Paint the base of your face using peach or flesh colored paint. Note: This does not need to be a perfect circle. The edges won’t be seen when the key is finished. Allow the paint to dry.
Dip the blunt end of a wood skewer in pink paint. Dot two cheeks on the key.
Dip the point of the skewer in red paint. Dot the nose between the cheeks.
Dip the point of the skewer in black paint. Dot the eyes. Allow the paint to dry.
Apply snow texture paint around the face and down the length of the key. Place a dot on the top, side edge of the key for a pom pom. Sprinkle with white sparkly glitter while wet. Allow the snow to dry.
Rip a 1/2″ wide strip of homespun or Christmas fabric. Cut 8″ long. Thread strip through the key hole and tie o form a hanger.
