I’ve been trying to “reinvent” the Christmas Tree and introduce some new ways of “’tis the season” decorations by doing some of the ornaments myself. I’ve already shared the Mini Hats & Snowman the Grey with you guys (both of which you can find here & here, respectively), so now I’m sharing the Scandinavian Santa a.k.a Tomte. Or, as I like to call them, the Weirdos with Beardos. One of the things that I love about these dudes, actually about the Scandinavian style in general, is the simplicity that it offers. Plus, look how wizard-y & cute these are.
Yet another awesome thing about these Scandinavian fellas is that they are fairly easy to be made. So, if you happen to love these Tomte-s, do continue scrolling down to see the tools needed for operation Scandinavian Santa – Weirdos with Beardos + photographed instructions.
the What-s + How-To-s.
When I first decided to make a Scandinavian Santa myself, I had no idea how to do it. My first idea was to make a slightly bigger one that will kinda “stand” near the Christmas Tree. But, then I remembered that the light bulb I used to make Snowman the Great can actually work with the Weirdo with a Beardo just as well. It may not be big enough to be placed as a decorative figure. But, I figured I’ll do a smaller one as an ornament for the Tree this time and see how that’ll go. Plus after all, you know what they say, size doesn’t matter.
So, below is the photographed “doin’ it myself” process, so you can keep scrolling down & see all the steps.
Hope that this was helpful & inspiring. Feel free to share some of your own Christmas related DIY-s in the comments section. And last, but definitely not least, stay weird.
