How to Make an Old World Father Christmas Doll - United States

You will Need:
one piece of card stock paper
small scraps of red and cream stripe fabric, cream fabric for face (or use a wooden ball for face), and tan faux fur
grey doll hair
small rusty snowflakes
greenery with red berries, cinnamon sticks
basic craft needs like stuffing, black marker, fabric glue or hot glue, needle and thread

Cut a 8.5"X11" cardstock piece of paper in half.

Fold the paper to form a cone shape. Tape or staple in place. Cut off the bottom to make the cone stand flat.

Use the bottom of the cone to create a circle on beige fabric for the Santa face.

If you do not want to hand sew or machine sew you can purchase a wooden ball for the face.

(If you are using a wooden ball for the face skip this step.)

Place fabric pretty sides together and hand stitch or machine stitch around the outer edge of circle. Leave an opening for turning. Turn face pretty side out and stuff.

Draw a face on fabric or wooden ball.
Glue face onto cone.

Cut an 8"X4.25" piece of fabric for Santa coat. Drape coat over cone and glue in place. Cut an excess fabric from bottom.

Cut a 1" strip of fur and glue down the center front of Santa body.

Cut a 1.5" strip of fabric and glue at bottom of Santa doll body sandwiching the body between the fur on a fold.

For hat cut a 6"X6" square of fabric. Cut the top on an angle as shown in the photo.

Place the hat pretty sides of fabric together. Either glue or sew the angle closed.

Turn hat pretty side out. Cut a strip of fur 1.5" and fold in half. Sandwich fur in hat and glue in place.

Glue hat on Santa head. Glue Santa's beard and hair.

Finish decorating your Old World Santa Doll from the United States by gluing the rusty snowflakes, greenery, and cinnamon sticks in place.
