Just because we don’t have “littles” in our home anymore (until grandkids come!) doesn’t mean that we no longer “believe” in the magic of Santa and the spirit of giving. I made this fun and easy Santa clothesline DIY Christmas decoration and I love how it turned out!
Supplies needed to make your own Santa clothesline DIY Christmas decoration:
- 5 x 12 inch Stretched Burlap Canvas.
- Santa’s Valet Stickers.
- Red and White Twist Baker’s Twine.
- 1 inch Wood Clothes Pins.
- Core’dinations 6 x 6 Glitter Silk Paper Pack.
- Small Silver Nails or Standard Sized Silver Brads.
- Downloadable “We Believe with Tag” Silhouette Cutting File.
The first thing you will want to do is create your “We Believe” tag. You can use an electronic cutting machine to cut our downloadable cut file. Or you can create your own tag using stickers or your own hand writing.
The cut file will have a tag shape, and word art to fit the tag. I cut both images from white cardstock, and then silver Glittersilk cardstock. I chose to use the white tag, with silver Glittersilk word art. You can switch out your colors as desired.
Prepare your burlap canvas. This canvas has a wooden frame. Using a small nail, measure 1 inch from the top of the canvas and insert a small nail.
This was the smallest nail I could find in our garage and it was too long. If you have smaller nails, you can just use the nail itself. I had to “make do” with what I had. If you need to do it my way as well, remove the nail, and use the hole left behind to insert a brad.
Arrange your stickers how you would like them on your canvas. Then measure a length of red baker’s twine to fit the length of the canvas, with some overhang.
