Santa’s Red Underwear
February 12th, 2013 posted by Family Corner Staff
What does Santa wear under his red coat and pants? Why, red underwear, of course! Make these adorable ornaments from felt and glue and stuff with goodies for Christmas morning! You will need red felt patterns white buttons or small pom poms craft glue or hot glue (hot glue is recommended) small white bow white chenille stick or ribbon
If you make this project
What you do
Cut the patterns out and trace the underwear and back flap onto the red felt. Cut two of the underwear and one flap for each ornament you are making. Cut a 2″ slit in the back of ONE of the underwear. This is where you will be filling the underwear with candy or money. // Apply glue on the “outline” of one side of the underwear felt and then place the other side on top and press firmly. Let dry. Apply the “back flap” to the back of the underwear. Apply glue to the top straight part of the flap and place it 1/2″ above the slit that you already cut out. Let dry. Glue three buttons down the front of Santa’s Underwear and 2 buttons on the left and right side of the back flap. (See photo)
Use pinking shears to cut out a small piece of material and glue the letter from the elves onto it. Glue diagonally on the front left or right side of the underwear. Create a small coat hanger by bending a white chenille stick into shape. Insert in Santa’s Undies and secure with glue. Another option is to simply glue a loop of ribbon or gold cord to the inside back of the undies for the hanger. Fill back flap with candy or money.
– Finish edges with a blanket stitch or by hand stitching for an added touch.
