2. Cut a simple keychain shape out of the cardboard and trace it on the red felt, folding the felt in two so that you end up with two identical shapes.

6. Use the black parachute cord to represent Santa's belt. Simply thread the metallic tab onto the cord (belt buckle) and wrap it around the centre of the keychain that will become a Santa Claus coat. Glue the cord on the back of the keychain to hold it in place. Make a hole at the top of the keychain and press a hole reinforcement on either side. Thread a piece of red yarn through the hole.
