Today we will see a nice way to recycle glass or plastic jars.
With a few tricks, you can transform a jar into a container disguised as a beautiful Santa Claus.
You can use it to insert candies to distribute to children during the Christmas holidays.
Let’s see how.
Gift No. 50
SANTA CLAUS CONTAINER
a jar with a lid (it can be glass, but if you want to give it to younger children you can also use a plastic one) – a white stocking – a decorated stocking for the cap – metal wire (for the glasses) – wire – white wool – red felt strip – hot glue
First, let’s start by covering the jar with a white sock. Cut off the excess fabric (it must not go over the edge, so to be able to put the lid on). With the hot glue, stick the fabric right under the border.
With the remaining fabric and some filling, create a ball: this will be the nose.
Now let’s go create the beard and the hair: Create bows with the wool thread and close them, always with the wool thread, in the center.
Cut the closed ends.
Now cut a strip of black felt (this will be your Santa’s belt).
Create the glasses with the wire.
After cutting the top of the decorated sock, close it with a colored ribbon and cover the lid as well. Attach it with hot glue so that you don’t see the edge.
Now you just have to assemble your Santa Claus by attaching the belt, nose, hair and beard and finally the glasses. With a permanent marker create the eyes.
Now you can close your jar … without forgetting to fill it with candies and chocolates!
