Make this adorable holiday decoration all by yourself! Don't waste extra money buying holiday decorations, instead, show off your crafting skills with this Paper Lantern Santa! Start by cutting out a round face out of felt. Using hot glue, attach the face to a White Paper Lantern. Then, cut out two colored pupils, and two oval-shaped eyes made out of construction paper. Glue the pupils onto the eyes, and then onto the face. Cut out glasses from black construction paper, and carefully glue them around the eyes. Next, add some pink cheeks and a bright red nose onto Santa's face. Place a construction paper mouth a few inches below the nose. Glue cotton balls around the nose and along his cheeks. Finally, glue the trim of the Red Velvet Santa Hat to the top of the lantern and adjust it as necessary. Now hang this Paper Lantern Santa up, or use it as a centerpiece to add some holiday cheer to your home!
