I used old Christmas cards and glued them onto wooden blocks. There are six different puzzle pictures.
This St. Nick is one of my favorites. I made him from paper mache.
I painted an old wood ironing board.
Dead wood snags from our pasture make interesting shapes to turn into Santas.
I salvaged wood shed siding from the farm where I grew up to craft these two guys.

suewannabeinkc writes: I love the ironing board Santa! I have one with nno specific plans for it, so I will have to look into painting a Santa on it (or asking my artist friend to do it for me). Your old-fashioned Santa collection is terrific, and so is your Christmas tree in the old crock! Merry Christmas to you and yours.
