DIY Santa Watchers



Oh, how excited I am to bring back the SANTA WATCHERS!! I found the idea on Pinterest last year and this was one of my most shared projects EVER – meaning I knew I had to share them again this holiday season. But – I also wanted to team up with the ever inspiring Amy from Ever Co. and create a fun contest to give back to a lucky follower this holiday!!! So we’ve come up with a contest, which I’ll share all about below :)

But first, let’s talk about how easy these are to make!!! Grab 2 toilet paper rolls or a paper towel roll and cut it in half. Cover with wrapping paper, color, or paint. Hot glue them together. Hot glue ribbon on the outside (measure the correct length for your child) and then decorate!

Break these Santa Watchers out on Christmas Eve so your little ones can peek (alllll day) for Santa out the window!! Piper LOVED them last year!

The Great Santa Watcher Contest

Here’s how the contest works!! Create these DIY Santa Watchers with your kids and show us your creative magic on Instagram – simply tag @TheMamaNotes and @TheEverCo and you’ll be entered to win! We’ll be picking finalists and then letting our audiences vote on the most creative Santa Watchers of the year! The prize is $200 Paypal Cash (or a donation to your charity of choice) and a $120 shop credit to The Ever Co!

The ones we made last year:
