Cinnamon Santas

I like to get a head start on the holidays!

Today I am sharing the Cinnamon Santas I made:

Instead of putting a traditional bow on some of my Christmas gifts, I made some Santas out of Cinnamon sticks:
I gathered my supplies: paint, brushes, cinnamon sticks and Snow-tex:
I painted the "hats and belts" in red:
I used Snow-tex for the white fur on his hat and belt, and his beard and mustache. If you are not familiar with this, it is a textured paint that dries firm:
I painted flesh faces, rosy cheeks before adding the Snow-tex:
To finish them off, I added eyes and a belt buckle:
Perfect packaging for Apple-Cinnamon Bread!
