This is our floor Santa. I designed him many years ago and my hubby cut out the form for me out of clear pine. He made a stand for him and then I painted him. My son-in-law Mark has always loved him and so we surprised him with one last Christmas. He stands about 2 feet tall.
This is our moon Santa and we have been making him for a very long time. We have given many as gifts through the years.
The one on the left is an original pattern made in the eighties. And the one on the right is an Intarsia Santa made from a pattern by hubby.
The one on the right is a shelf version of the standing Santa with a different face. The one on the left is one made from a pattern. Hubby does all the cutting out and we both paint.
The sleeping shelf Santa was from a pattern with a face I created and the Raggedy Ann is our own pattern.
I really love this one and it is one featured in our yet to be published craft book as a pattern.
Hubby is a fisherman and I just had to create an Intarsia Santa. I fashioned the vest after a real one our oldest daughter gave hubby for Christmas one year.
These are other figures we made many years ago. I made the Gnomes from looking at the Gnome book which I love-ha! And the jolly old man was made with a likeness to a paper doll Christmas card.
This is another one that I really love!
He is our own creation and also featured in our pattern book. He is also an Intarsia pattern, which means that all the parts are cut out like a mosaic, glued back together and painted. His face is my signature Santa. I have been drawing Santa since I was a child.
And last but not least, this is an over the door or window Santa. He was a pattern in my hubby's woodworking book but the face I created is my own. I really like him a lot, too. He is over our window in the den.
Thanks for coming and I hope you enjoyed our Santa's made from wood! Please visit our other blogs with the links in the sidebar.
