Here are some Christmas blocks that I made with my boys for Christmas Presents. They had so much fun putting these characters to life. We made a Christmas Tree, Santa, and Snowman out of 4x4 posts.
I had my husband cut the 4x4 post
2 1/2 in for the head,
4 1/2 in for the torso
and 6 1/2 in for the base.
You will also need:
Red, green, and white paint
And Black and Orange, Yellow (for the Snowman and Santa)
Random sizes and color buttons
White Feather Boa (for Santas Beard)
Heres the Christmas Tree which was the easiest to make out of the 3. All I did was paint the blocks green then sanded the edges. Then I hot glued on some of my colorful buttons all over the place. For the star I glued a wooden star that you can get at craft stores or a small ribbon at the top.
Heres the Snowman which I painted white then sanded the edges again. I painted the eyes and smile "rocks" with black paint with a Qtip. Then the nose just a triangle with orange paint.
For the torso I glued on 3 buttons.
Heres the Santa which I painted red. I then sanded the edges and the face 3/4 of the way off just on one side. I got a Qtip again and dabbed white paint on top for the cap. Then I painted on just eyes and a nose with black paint with a fine tip paint brush.
For the beard I cut the White Feather Boa 4 inches long. Then, hot glued it onto the face just in a U shape on the checks. That way it droops down the torso.
Then on the torso block I painted a belt with black and yellow paint.
There they are.
