Looking for a last minute Christmas gift idea or some Christmas Décor? I have one for you that you can literally put together in just a few minutes…Santa’s Key.
Have you heard of Santa’s Magic Key? The legend states that any old key, with Santa’s Magic, can open any door. This allows Santa to get into homes who do not have a chimney or a fireplace.
Hang the key on a door handle or display it in your home and Santa will be sure to find his way to deliver his gifts. This is not a new idea, I just wanted to put my own twist on it. I thought it would be nice to be able to display the key on our Christmas mantle.
I simply took an old scrap of wood left over from this North Pole Crate I shared with you earlier, and cut it so that it fit the poem. Then I sanded the wood down on the sides and the top and bottom so that it didn’t have any rough edges.
Then I mod-podged the Santa’s Key Poem onto the wood block with a matte Mod Podge. Wrap a pretty ribbon around the block with the key attached and tie it in a bow to hold it in place. You can find keys at your craft store or you can find them here on Amazon…skeleton key.
Or hang it from a door knob to display it in your home. You can also just attach the poem and the Santa’s Magic Key tag and set it in a prominent area in your home.
I think any young child or family would enjoy getting this unique gift. And…it is something that can be given really inexpensively.
I couldn’t find the original source of the poem I used, and would love to link back to them if any of you know where I can find it. I would love to give credit where it is due.
If you would like to download the poem and/or the Santa’s Key tag you can click on the link below. If you are having trouble downloading it, you may need to be on a non-mobile device.
As always, I love to hear when you use on my these ideas. I would love to see or hear about them. Six more sleeps ‘till Christmas!
