This guy is very primitive. We had lots of fun making him and watching him come to life.
Kris Kringle is made of muslin. He has been through a 5 set grunging process that includes staining, baking, sanding and a special finish.
He has a pinched nose and painted eyes. His beard is made of raveled muslin strips and has been hand sewn to his face.
Kris Kringle is holding a bag filled with two grubby, glass glittered candy canes, greenery, berries and cinnamon sticks. The bag is made from burlap. I attached a tag that reads Dec 24th.
His hat is made from an old stained and grubby sock. It is hand sewn to his head and added two rusty jingle bells to the tip.
