You will need:
1 x Red felt
1 x White felt
2 x Pipe cleaners
1 x Tiny gold bell
You want to create the foundation for your body, starting with the legs and head. Fold one pipe cleaner in half and feed the top through your large bead. Leaving about 1cm of pipe cleaner coming out the top.
Next cut out the dress using your white felt. Its easiest to fold in half and cut out a T-shirt shape, so when you open it, you left with a shape resembling this. Cut a small slit using scissors in the centre where the neck would be.
Feed your legs through the slit you created so the head is balancing nicely on top.
To secure the felt in place and add some extra detail, sew around the edges of the dress using some red thread and a needle, using the button stitch method. Try and make sure there are no bits of thread sticking out once you have finished.
Next cut out 4 pieces in a small glove shape to add for the hands. Once you have all the pieces, add two together and sew around the edges, leaving the straight side open for the wire to slide in.
Once they are sewn, fill the glove with glue and push them onto the end of your pipe cleaner. You may need to cut the ends of your wire slightly, so there is no gap between the white and red felt.
Time to create some hair. Using your natural twine, measure out 6-8 pieces roughly the same length. Its good to have each one a slightly different size to give that hair effect. Tie all the pieces together in the centre, creating a parting. Then add two small bows towards the end of the hair strands using your red thread. Stick this to the top of the head, in front of the pipe cleaner.
Now to create a hat. Start by cutting two bits of red felt and sewing them together in a beanie shape (similar to the gloves). You want to make the back piece longer than the front as it will fit on the head better. This part is quite difficult as you have to measure it perfectly to your bead. Just sew one edge and wrap it around the head, and making adjustments if you need to. Then cut then open ends with a slight curve to fit the head nicely.
Once you have a good shape, glue on pipe cleaner around each edge to create a Santa type hat. I had to sew lightly on each edge to secure it well. Also sew a tiny gold bell to the top of the hat for a finishing touch.
Once you are happy with the size and shape, glue the hat onto the head of your ornament. To make the hat pointy, I pulled both sides together at the back of the hat and sewed them carefully together using your red thread and sewing needle.
Now your ornament is finished and is ready to be hung up on the tree!
