DIY Santa Claus Picture

All month I’ve been wanting to make some sort of DIY Santa Claus artwork. At first I thought I’d do something with pallets, but never got around to grabbing an old pallet from work. But then I remembered I had this 1980’s print hanging around and decided to transform it into this DIY Santa Claus picture.

DIY Santa Claus PictureToday I’m going to show you how easy it was to make this DIY Santa Claus artwork!

2. Tear out book pages being sure to the leave all edges a little ragged.

3. Mod Podge the pages over the existing print, laying pages in different directions.

4. Using Mod Podge again, apply a vintage Santa graphic atop the book pages, smoothing out wrinkles.

  1. I love this, Jennifer! Such a great Santa image and I love how you used the glitter to embellish the smoke from the pipe and Santa himself. Love the book page background. I may just have to copy this! I think I have what I need already here to do it {except the Santa image, which I can probably find online}.

    Merry Christmas! : )
