And, lastly, a Santa Candy Jar.  This one is not an ornament (it's about 10inches tall) and you take his 'hat'/sock off and fill it with peppermints! He was made in the 70's as well, by my late Grandmother, so he's quite sentimental.

I could easily tell you how to make him if anyone is interested, he's fabulously cheesy and kitchy! He's just felt, a pompom nose, a hurricane shaped glass jar, and a red sock!



What about using a plastic 20 oz. soda bottle?  I love the Santa BTW Cheesy

You could try it... It just won't be as sturdy.  I'd hit the thrift store, you're bound to find a cheap glass vase there! Cheesy

$60 is ridiculous!

Post in this thread next December when I have the ornaments out again, I'll scan them for you front and back so you can make your own! Smiley
