Santa's Holiday Express - JS002

  • Sale
  • Regular price $8.95

The idea for these series came from our love for design themed "Christmas" Trees for different holidays.  Throughout the year - design trees are a wonderfully creative accent for any holiday.  

In our new Santa ornament series we're bringing some of our favorite Santas from Jo Sonja's 50 year treasury of whimsical design.  This first series is Folk Art Santa's, 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.

An absolutely delightful piece to adorn your tree.  The original plate was done in 2003 and appeared in the book "Christmas Paintables".  It has since been released in a packet - JP3358 - Santa's Holiday Express.    If you have that packet or book 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.
