This easy Christmas Peg Santa will be a great addition to your Christmas decor. Use him to peg your Christmas cards to a piece of string for decoration or peg him to your Christmas tree and around the house!

Step

Step 1:

Take a wooden peg and some red acrylic paint. Paint the whole peg red - except for the round top.
Step

Step 2:

The next step is to take a pipe cleaner - we have used red to match our Santa but you can adapt this activity to make any Christmas them Peg Person you like! Twist the pipe cleaner into a cone/hat shape - use the top of the peg to measure the largest coil. The hat should sit nicely on top of the peg.
Step

Step 3:

Using some craft glue - attach the pipe cleaner hat to the top of your peg. The best way to do this is to put a small amount of glue around the bottom coil of your pipe cleaner hat and then press it onto the peg.
Step

Step 4:

Take a white pipe cleaner and make another loop - this is the trimming for the bottom of the hat. You can attach this with glue or, if you cut a bit more pipe cleaner than you need, simply twist and tuck the pipe cleaner at the back of your Peg Santa's head.
Step

Step 5:

Cut some pieces of paper to make the beard and belt for your Peg Santa. We have used a small white triangle for the beard, a strip of black for the belt and a square of yellow for the buckle. It is easiest to cut out rough shapes and then measure them on you Santa.
Step

Step 6:

Using a little bit more craft glue, stick the beard onto Peg Santa's face, glue the buckle to the belt and then glue the belt around Santa's middle.
Step

Step 7:

Finally, to complete your Peg Santa, draw eyes, nose and a mouth on his little face and he is all done!
