Approximate Time: 30 minutes

Supplies

  • wooden handle paint brush with light bristles
  • white felt
  • 2 wiggles eyes
  • tan felt
  • 1 speck of red felt
  • ribbon
  • glue
  • markers

Instructions

  1. Take paint brush; I got one that had no color or varnish on handle and used a red thick marker to color the top handle. You can you spray paint or paint, but I like marker it dries quickly.
  2. Take piece of tan felt and adhere to front metal piece of paintbrush.
  3. Take the white felt and wrap around from one side along back to other side to make his hair, adhere this with glue. (note you can you yarn, fiberfill whatever you have or like).
  4. Glue on 2 wiggly eyes.
  5. Cut triangle tan felt and glue so it sticks out.

  6. Cut out mustache from white felt and glue.
  7. Take the speck of red felt for lip under mustache.
  8. Take ribbon and glue around top of face around paintbrush.
  9. Finally add ribbon, jute, or other cording through hole at top of paint brush so you can hang on tree, door knob, anywhere you like.
  10. Also if you don't like red, use another color like green or blue to match your Christmas decorations.
