Step 1: Start by cutting out a sheet of dark red paper that completely covers the toilet paper roll (just use your roll to define its size). Then take a sheet of lighter red paper and cut out two legs and a hood as shown. Also, cut out two small ovals and a string for the hood in the white paper. Stick the white string on Santa’s hood!
