Santa Belly Paper Flower Holiday Craft Idea

This is such a great family or classroom craft idea too. It starts with a cool paper flower technique transformed into a Santa belly. Last month I made these cute paper flower turkeys for fun mason jar gift ideas using this same technique.

This is what I used to make these paper flower ornaments:

  • Holiday red patterned scrapbook paper
  • Gold glitter self-adhesive foam
  • Black self-adhesive foam
  • Wood circle (at least 2″)
  • Baker’s twine
  • XACTO knife or scissors
  • Glue gun
  • Clear tape
