Making a Christmas Santa’s Grotto…
You will need to roll up the fabric opening to the giant dark den and securely tie in place using ribbon. Secure some mesh lights around the inside of the giant dark den using the hook and loop tabs found in the top inside corners of the den. Top Tip: decide which side you need the plug to be on before you put up the lights. Next, pull out a long length of creative foil and scrunch up to create texture and volume. Tie 1 length of the foil on each side of the den leaving plenty of spare foil at the bottom to build up the base. Gather and stick the foil to the inside of the door frame using sticky tape.
Add a ‘swag’ of scrunched up foil across the top of the den to finish off the Grotto’s entrance and build up the outside of the Grotto using boxes etc. Cover the boxes with the spare foil creating a built up snowy entrance effect.
Cover a chair with coloured foil and add a Sparkle Cushion to create a special ‘throne’ for Santa (or a little helper!) Make a special chair back by twisting and shaping metallic pipe cleaners, place the chair inside the Grotto and add presents around the base.
Add a Christmas tree with twinkling lights and children’s decorations and finally a beautiful reindeer and sleigh full of presents for a perfect Santa’s Grotto!
Enjoy creating your magical festive space….
