I just love to experiment. Especially with wood and cloth. So, I decided to see what I could do with a bunch of wood finials that I had.
If you don't know what a "finial" is it is an ornament at the top of a piece of furniture. Like a curtain rod or lamp, etc.
I decided that the "finial" I had would make a great body for a primitive Santa make-do. So, "Santa Me" was created.
"Santa Me" is an 8" a primitive Santa make-do with a stand alone wood body and cloth head. His face is embroidered and his cheeks are blushed. He has thick mohair yarn for his loopy beard and mustache. His straight hair made of thick mohair yarn sticks out from the top and side of his head in three spots. The back of his head is totally bald.
"Santa Me's" finial wood body is painted antique maroon and he has a painted black and gold belt and black dash highlights.
"Santa Me" loves being different and loves being the first in a new series. He's adventuresome and loves to be bold and daring. Best of all he loves being unique. As a wooden Santa finial - he sure is.
