The more, the merrier! This foldout Santa garland can even stand.
1 sheet of red construction paper
1 sheet of white felt (8 x 11 inches) or white cotton balls
1-inch square of aluminum foil
Medium colored pom-poms, optional
1. Fold the construction paper accordion-style, horizontally, so you have four sections. On the top fold, draw a Santa shape; be sure both arms reach the edges. While holding the folded paper, cut out the shape, being careful not to cut through the arm on the folded side. Slowly pull apart the edges of the paper -- you'll have four connecting Santas.
2. Fold down the pointy tops of each hat. Cut out four beard shapes and four hat-trim pieces from the white felt. Cut out white felt pom-poms or use small pieces of cotton balls. Glue the beards, hat trim, and pom-poms in place.
3. Use the black marker to draw eyes on all Santas. Draw belts on the two end Santas, and glue two squares of aluminum foil to the center of each belt. Or glue medium pom-poms to the front of Santa's coat, if desired. Color in Santa's black boots.
4. Let the garland dry for about 15 minutes, then fold back up, and it's ready for delivery. (You might write on the back that the feet can be folded up to make the garland stand.)
