Here's how to create a Craft Stick Santa in 30 Minutes:
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas Craft stick Santa, gather all supplies. To create Santa, line up five jumbo craft sticks on your work surface, making the three in the center one inch longer than the two on either side. Using scissors, trim additional jumbo craft sticks to the width of the Santa and attach them with a glue gun and glue sticks.
Using scissors, trim the excess from the top of the two longer jumbo craft sticks. Glue two of the discarded pieces of jumbo craft sticks together to create a “V” shaped mustache. You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Place the mustache on Santa and trace lightly with a pencil. Paint Santa’s beard, mustache, and hair with Titanium White acrylic paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. I love my Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have one-coat coverage on most surfaces.

Attach eight small white pom poms along the bottom edge of Santa’s hat with a glue gun and glue sticks. Glue one large white pom pom to the top of Santa’s hat. Glue Santa’s hat to his head. Attach the mustache and wiggle eyes onto Santa’s face with a glue gun and glue sticks. Measure and cut a one-inch section of a jumbo craft stick, and glue it to Santa’s mustache face for his nose.
Using a piece of scrap paper, mask off the edge of Santa’s hair and create cheeks with Bubblegum Pink acrylic paint and a sponge dabber. To finish the Craft Stick Santa, add sparkle to his beard and mustache by creating swirls with iridescent glitter glue. Set aside to dry.
