{Christmas Craft Week: Day 2 - Santa's Belly Candy Dish}

Don't Forget about my awesome giveaway from Little Green Books! They would make a great gift! :)

It's Day 2 of Christmas Craft Week!

He had a broad face and a little round belly,
that shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly.

(any Elf fans? l.o.v.e.)

Santa makes me smile!
Candy makes me smile!
and this project DEFINITELY makes me smile!

Santa's Belly Candy Bowl!

I think my "fur" needs a little hair cut ...
but isn't it adorable??

I can't wait to fill it with Candy Canes!
I'm also currently making a galvanized tub one to use for drinks!!

Want to make your own?

What you need:
- Clay Pot (Galvanized Tub, even a Sand Bucket)
- Red & Black Paint
- Gold sequins for the belt (or glitter, etc)
- White Fur/Trim (or white garland)
- Hot Glue

Paint your Pot Red - I used the cheap WalMart spray paint!

Paint your "black" belt.
You could also use black ribbon! :)

Then use hot glue to add some white faux fur along the top!

Now you need the belt buckle.
I used gold sequins, but you could use glitter or gold floral wire too! :)

That's it!
Fill it with candy canes.
Or maybe ornaments.
or even use it as a "gift bag"!
The possibilites are endless!

I'm linking up to these parties! :)
