Santa Paintbrush Ornament

I have to admit, I am enjoying being a kid this holiday season.  I’ve been crafting up a storm of fun and whimsical Christmas decorations.I think I must need a grandchild or something.  Or maybe I am just missing my grown baby girl.  Whatever the reason, this cute Santa Paintbrush Ornament is my latest fun creation.This Santa Paintbrush Ornament is whimsical and fun to make and will look cute on a Christmas tree or as a wall hanging.

I always spend a great part of this time of the year doing crafts and projects.  The weather has made it so that gardening is not in the cards and, although I LOVE to cook festive sweet treats, my hips keep telling me that crafting is better for my waistline!

I went to the Dollar Store the other day to make sure that my craft supplies are topped up. Then when an idea hits me, I will know that I have everyone I need on hand to finish the project without having to make a shopping trip.  Three paintbrushes ended up in my shopping cart and all three have now been made into cute ornaments. (see the Grinch ornament here, and my cute Snowman ornament can be found here.)

And now it’s time to make a Santa Paintbrush Ornament.

To make the Santa Paintbrush Ornament you will need the following supplies:  (This post contains affiliate links for your crafting experience.)

Paint the shank of the paintbrush red and the metal part and bristles white.

Start by painting the shank of the paintbrush red and the metal part and bristles white with acrylic craft paints.Use polyester fiberfill and a green ribbon to make a hat brim

When the paint has dried, combine the orange and white paint to paint on a face shape on the metal shank.  Let this dry and then wrap the top of the paintbrush head with some polyester batting and then wrap this with a piece of thin green ribbon.

Decorate the hat top with pom poms and a cute wooden Jingle hanger. Festive Christmas ribbon adds a hanger.

Hot glue five white pom poms on the shank of the paintbrush.  Thread the 1/2″ ribbon through the hole to act as a hanger and add the wooden package hanging at the top of the paintbrush.Finish the hat with a snowflake and bell and add whiskers and a red nose.

Paint a face on the head of the Santa and allow it to dry.  I cut out a piece of a silk red poinsettia flower into a star shape and added a white glitter snowflake sticker and small red plastic berry to the hat to decorate.  The final step was to cut a piece of the white felt into a whisker shape, and glue it below the fame and then add a red pom pom to finish.This Santa Paintbrush Ornament is whimsical and fun to make and will look cute on a Christmas tree or as a wall hanging.

TADA!! The Santa Paintbrush Ornament is done.  He’s ready to hand on the Christmas tree and will also look great as a wall hanging.

    He’s so cute Carol! Looks like a fun project to make with the kids. I know what you mean by missing your grown baby girl. I miss both my grown baby girls, and my grand baby and grandkids. One daughter lives 5 hours west of me and the other 4 1/2 hours south. 😟
    Thanks for sharing your cute Paintbrush Santa!

      Hi Linda. Having my only daughter so far away is very hard. We keep in touch a lot but it’s not the same as having her nearby. Carol
