I have always loved the charming photos with Santa's arm,
but didn't want to purchase a Santa suit to create them.
A few weeks ago, I had a FLASH vision!
In my mind, I saw one of those cheapy Christmas stockings
with the toe cut off and an arm through the top...
Instant Santa arm!!!
When I get these visions, I am on a mission to
accomplish what I saw, so I hurried over to Goodwill and
found one of the red fake fur stockings for 49-cents!
I used a vintage cotton white glove that are readily available
at most thrift stores, but you could also use a simple
white knit glove available at a dollar store as pictured.
Then I invited my photo pals Lucy and Terri to come over
and play Santa!
We used lots of mugs and fun Christmas props I picked up
at various thrift stores for a few bucks.
We were laughing so hard and having a great time with Santa's arm!
Try setting up on a table with your Christmas tree in
the distance to create glittery bokeh in the background!
Try putting your kids' names on the naughty or nice list.
I think this would be a fun project with the kids!
Maybe have Santa's arm interacting with the children, handing them
some candy or a present.
Terri thought of creating a naughty or nice list for pets!
Terri also had the idea to have Santa's hand patting her
There are endless ideas for photographing Santa's arm
making it personal to you and your home!
I hope this sparks your imagination to come up with
even more fun poses!
If you do this project...post your results on my Facebook page and
I will share them!
I hope you have as much fun as we did!!
