Make Santa suit candle votives for Christmas decor

Debra Hardy provides detailed instructions on how to make darling decorative Santa soy votive candles in this video. She first cuts the red felt into 6 3/4 inch by 2 inch strips for the Santa suit, wraps it around and adheres it to the bottom of the glass votive. Next, she secures a smaller strip of the white faux fur on top of the red felt also towards the bottom of the candle to create the bottom of Santa's jacket. Debra then instructs the viewer to cut a 6 3/4 inch by 1/4 inch black felt strip for Santa's belt. She then secures the belt along to top of the red felt strip. Using gold wrapping paper, Debra glues multiple squares on the belt to make the shiny belt buckle. At this point you will decide if you would like to make Santa with or without the optional, more detailed and difficult, arms. Debra shares how to wrap each arm, glue the mittens, red felt and faux fur to complete this optional, yet cut detail to your Santa candles. To add detail finishes, Debra carefully glues gems for the buttons of Santa's suit. If you are looking for an easy, budget-friendly, adorable Christmas gift idea for yourself or family and friends, you will love these Santa votive candles!
