Santa’s Magic key to get in when you don’t have a chimney
I know that everyone probably has all they need finished for the holiday, but this is something that a lot of people need, and may not even know it yet. Do you have a chimney for Santa to come down? We don’t and my 6 year old was EXTREMELY sad about it. So guess what showed up at our door one day? The magic glitter (free printable here). This “magic glitter” is so cool, because once you put it on a key it gets activated by Santa’s Christmas magic, on Christmas Eve, which will then make the key fit your door and open it up for him to visit your home. Who wants to give me a virtual hug right now?!
- Metal Skeleton Key (I bought mine for $1.50 at Michaels this last week)
- “Magic Glitter” (and free printable for the arrival)
- Mod Podge Sparkle
- Foam Paint Brush
- Wooden Gift Tags
- Stamps & other embellishments
I started by ripping a piece of decorative paper to the size of my largest gift tag and then using the sparkle Mod Podge, attach the paper in place. Let dry.
Now on to the key and all the magic!! We started with using the sparkle Mod Podge again; because the more sparkle the better! I decided just to put it on the top of the key.
Once both tags are dry, I put the smaller on top of the large one and strung some twine thru both to hook them together. Then I put a red ribbon just thru the large tag and used the twine to connect the tags to the key. Tie it all in place and there you have it!!!
Of course the kids had to add a little extra glitter to the whole thing just to make sure it would help the key work. And they also made me promise to let them put the bag of excess glitter outside just in case Santa needs more of it to make it work.
