Twelve Weeks of Christmas! Wreaths/Door Decor

Wreaths/Door Decor!

Week 8

This week we are to share a wreath or door decor.
This is the perfect time for the coolest Santa ever to make his blogland debut!
I found this Santa at a really wonderful shop in Wichita, KS, in the Christmas of 2007. They knew I was "in love" with him, but he was pretty expensive (OK, a lot expensive)! But, after Christmas, the shop owner gave me a sale price, and I snapped him up and brought him home to Texas. That year I left him in the den all year. In 2009 he moved into my studio but now is back in the den "presiding" over all the other Christmas tra-la-las.

His gorgeous raffia beard is four feet long!

I have no tutorial on creating him.
He may be one-of-a-kind, but you need to meet the coolest Santa I've ever seen!

How awesome is that Santa. I have a wreath, that I made and the Santa has a beard pf rafia but it is no where near that long. I love yours.

Thank you for coming for a visit. The candy garland was actually a post from last week. I would love for you to come by and see other posts as well and follow along my blog. I love to meet new people and get to know them.
