While helping my mom put up her Christmas decorations a month or so ago, I came across these vintage Santa napkin holders that we used to use as kids. Only two of the many we had survived the years, but I thought that this year it would be fun to re-create them with the kids for our Christmas Eve dinner with my parents.
If you want to make some too, here is what you will need:
*Pink or skin-colored felt
*Googly eyes (but I kind of prefer the tiny black poms like on the original vintage one)
Simply cut out the pattern found HERE and then put a piece of tan felt behind it with the googly eyes and red pom for the nose.
Glue the back like the image above. We used a low-temp glue gun, but any sort of white craft glue would work well too.
Then slip around a napkin. This is a canvas red napkin, but the large paper napkins will work well too. And you are ready for a dinner party!!!!
As I said before liZ and I are taking the next week or so off to give our families "our best" so we will see you back here at the first of the year.....have a wonderful Christmas and the rest of the holiday season! And a sincere thanks for coming around our little space in blog-land.....we are so thankful for all of you.
