Old Saint Nick

I haven't even taken down my Halloween decorations yet, but here is what I was working on today! I took the base from an old speaker stand, filled the screw holes, painted and distressed the base and then applied this picture of Santa with Modge Podge.

The Santa image is from Graphics Fairy. I roughly tore the edges and then inked them with brown ink. I didn't want it to look smooth so I just slapped in on the base, a little wrinkled, leaving the edges unglued so it looks like it is just barely stuck on. I also applied embossing powder to the fur and hat, just like freshly fallen snow. Diana
