Jelly Bean Bowl: Santa Christmas Crafts

Ages preschooler

With all the plates of Christmas cookies Santa samples, it's no wonder he's a little soft around the middle. Here, Santa offers a few treats of his own--a sampling of jelly beans or other Christmas candy - stored beneath the fuzzy brim of his hat.

How to make it

Jelly Bean Bowl Step 1

1. To make the hat, cut out two red felt triangles. Make sure the base of the hat will be big enough to fit over the neck of your jar. Glue together the sides of the two triangles, then trim the hat with a strip of faux fur around the bottom and a bit on top for the pompon.

2. Decorate Santa's face by cutting out and gluing on a faux fur beard, a pair of felt eyes and a felt nose.

3. Fill the jar with candy, put on the lid, then top it all off with Santa's hat.
