This decoration is a bit more complicated than the Pauline decoration, but I think it will be worth the extra effort!
Step 1. Collect together the ingredients! Cardboard, scissors, glue (or double sided tape), black wool and green wool (or you can use string or yarn or whatever you’ve got.) black pen.
Step 2. Cut out two Colin heads and two Colin bodies. Make them any size you like but I did mine at these sizes: head = 5 x 6 cm body = 4.5 x 1.5 cm
cover one head and one body with glue
Step 3. Lay two pieces of black wool or string across the gluey body to form the arms and legs. I suggest making them extra long then trim them down later.
Cut a piece of green wool, fold it in half and stick it to both the body and the head, with the loop coming out of the top of the head.
Step 4. Cover the second head and body pieces in glue and stick them on top of the first pieces, sandwiching the wool between them. Let the glue dry.
Step 5: Once the glue is dry, draw a face onto the head with a black pen. Cut the arm and leg strings to the correct length (in this case it was about 3cm but just do whatever you think looks best). You’ve made a Colin!
Step 6: Colin is pretty sassy as he is, but if you want to make him more seasonal add some embellishments of your choice. I’ve glued on a little paper hat and some glamorous sequins.
There you go! That’s Colin hanging up on my very tiny Christmas tree. Have fun making your own Colins!
