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. http://i81.photobucket.com/albums/j222/originalyouth/70sornaments004.jpg 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
