Hand Made Wool Santa Claus Belsnickel~Bean House Original
We made this tall Santa Claus with a Cranberry Wool Coat and Batting trim. The batting down the front of the coat is hand embroidered with a Christmas Vine. The rest of the batting is hand blanket stitched with Ivory Floss. His face is a Vintage Image and we stitched his nose. We made his beard and hair from Lamb’s Wool that we purchased at Old Sturbridge Village. He is holding a grunged Beeswax Candle in one hand and a sled in the other. We attached him to a round vintage cheese board so he stands securely. We sewed small cranberry ‘snowflake ornaments to a faux greenery Christmas tree and gave him a basket of our Cinnamon gingerbread men ornaments. He also has a small wooden butter churn. He has a lot of detail and will look charming on a mantle or shelf. He is a unique one-of-a-kind Collectible and an Original Bean House Design. He is 18” tall x 8” wide across the bottom board.
