Plan C020
Santa Claus is coming to town! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and that means it's time to get ready for Santa. This big, colorful, do-it-yourself outdoor display is a fun and easy way to create some holiday spirit for the whole neighborhood. The project includes twelve figures–Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, the sleigh, eight reindeer and the Claus family cat.

Perfect for the front yard or even up on the roof, the display is also great for adding holiday cheer to parks, businesses and schools. The figures are life-size, and Santa stands nearly six feet tall.

The display is printed on weather-resistant poster paper with waterproof, “sunfast” inks. Besides the posters, the project requires just a few sheets of exterior plywood, waterproof glue (No. 8A) and paint. The display is designed to last for years untreated, but a coat of water-based polyurethane sealer (No. 7B) is recommended for greater protection from the elements.

Construction is so simple that the whole family can get involved. To build, glue the posters onto plywood and cut out. Once everything's dry, add a coat of sealer, attach stakes or stands (made from leftover plywood or galvanized pipe), set up and enjoy.

Santa (No. 189), Mrs. Claus (No. 335), Sleigh (No. 257) and Reindeer (No. 256)
