Make A Santa Head Out Of A Mop
I have been asked several times how to make a Santa head out of a mop. I decided to make one and create a tutorial to share.
I got this mop at Dollar Tree. I started by taking the mop head off the pole.
I took a portion of the mop strands and pulled them back behind the mop base and secured them like a ponytail with a rubber band.
I then sectioned off a few more strands just under the top part and pulled them on either side to become a mustache.
I hot glued on 2 google eyes, and a pom pom nose.
I twisted each mustache side, pulled both sides around back and created another ponytail using a rubber band to secure it.
I hot glued a small Santa hat onto the top .
I used some fishing line and pulled it through the mop strands, and tied it in a loop so the Santa could be hung if I wanted.
For now I just placed him on my mantel.
I would love to have you stop by my blog Chas' Crazy Creations for the full tutorial as well as sign up for my latest creations, posts, recipes, exclusives, and more...

I would probably use black buttons for the eyes instead of the googly eyes, but otherwise what a inspiring craft idea!
