In our new Santa ornament series we're bringing some of our favorite Santas from Jo Sonja's 50 year treasury of whimsical design. The Folk Art Santa series, and there will be many other designs, both historical and new, added as we go along. Also look for other new series coming soon!
Another wonderful outlet for our creative journey, each ornament is done out of mdf and laser cut with intricate detail. The patterns are etched on the surface for ease of painting. If you prefer to not use the etching, it can be painted over with Gesso or Texture paste and then the pattern can be applied - as you prefer.
The busy night is over, Mr. and Mrs. Claus dance with joy, another job well done. First published in the book "Grandma Paints an Old Fashioned Christmas" in 1985 - it is now available as pattern packet JP3056 - Christmas Day in the Morning. If you have that packet already then you have the instruction for painting this design and can just purchase the blank. If you need the instruction for this Santa then there is an option listed below that is available for that as well.
Mr. Claus is approximately 6 1/4" tall by 3 1/4" wide.
