Altered Art: Gingerbread Santa Tree Topper
I bought this Santa last year after Christmas for no more than 30 cents. When I decided on having a “Gingerbread Christmas Cookie Tree” I just had to alter this little Santa. I bent his arms so he could carry a trio of gingerbread men, added a plaid patch (draw in stiches with a marker) to his suit, tucked a candy cane under one arm, glued a rick rack hem border and cookie accent (mini gingerbread ornament) on the other side of his suit, and glued a mini cookie cutter to his hat.
In the end I decided to use a gingerbread man as a topper so he is just hanging around (pun intended!).
