- Curly Chenille Pipe Cleaner - cut to 12 in. (30cm) in length
* I bought these at a Michaels craft store but the link below is another option.
- Craft foam sheet - cut a circle 4 in.(10 cm) in diameter; poke holes on both sides.
- Small red pompom - or dip a pink pompom in red paint as we did!
- Cotton balls - pull apart to make the mustache and hat trim.
- Red felt - cut a triangle for the hat.
- Craft eyes
- Washable Fingerpaint, Red - Crayola fingerpaint
1. Push the two ends of the chenille stem through the holes in the foam circle.
2. Hook the ends together at the back to form a hanger for the Christmas tree.
"His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry."
3. Glue a strip of fluffy cotton onto the face for the mustache.
4. Dip a cotton swab in red paint and dab onto the face to make cheeks and a mouth.
