What you bitches gon' need
All this shit:
Red and white paint
Black and red markers
Paint about 3/4 of the cardboard roll red and the other 1/4 a pale pink colour. Leave to dry well before moving onto the next step.
Draw a large circle onto the A4 sheet and cut it out. If you are under 12 or very clumsy, get an adult to help you. I can't afford to be sued.
Fold the circle into quarters and make a cone-ish shape with it. If you do Biology or Science, it's basically like preparing filter paper. Now, measure the cone against the cardboard roll to make sure the "hat" fits properly.
Paint yo hat red gurl. Leave to dry completely.
Secure the hat to the cardboard roll using sellotape, glue or a paperclip.
Glue on the cotton wool to the hat for the "fur" effect. (Faux fur I hope). If you're using liquid glue, I'd recommend applying it with a cue tip or an old paintbrush.
Add the finishing touches, such as a cotton wool beard and eyes. I wanted mine to look slightly derpy so I added some wonky eyes and flushed cheeks.
Now, for today's holiday (or should I say holidays) it is "let's hug day" and "make a gift day". So I guess a picture of a derpy cardboard Santa is my gift to you, and I send you cyber hugs and kisses.
Only 22 days to go guys!
