It was a sad Tuesday evening when Levi discovered that our new apartment didn’t have a chimney. Technically, it has a chimney. But, it has long since been closed up and plastered over. He wasn’t buying the theory that Santa knew how to magically create a fireplace and make it work. *sigh* So, instead, I was given the task of obtaining a set of keys for Santa. I used these simple steps to create Santa a key…
And, because I’m a nice girl, and all that nonsense, I’m sharing the printable with you! So, you too can have a Santa key.(imagine a salesman voice with that last sentence… “so you TOO can have a Santa key!”. Ha, that’s funny.)
Okay, this is a simple project to do. And, your child doesn’t care how fancy you make this. Really! As long as Santa can get in…they are good!
For my version, I used a craft frame from Michaels and tied the printable on the inside of it. I added some pretty ribbon to the key and tied it on the frame. Easy!
Some ideas for personalizing the printable and key:
- put the printable inside a picture frame (probably with plexi-glass front) and hang
- laminate the printable with an extra 4 inches on top. Cut a circle in the extra 4 inches to create a door hanger. Punch a hole in the bottom corner and hang the key
- Use a ring binder to add the key and a small version of the printable. Hide the key in your usual key hiding spot. Of course Santa can find it!!
- Tie the printable and key onto your usual evergreen Christmas wreath
