Inspired by the Belsnickels and Father Christmas figures of the 1800s, this wintry white gentleman has a kind soul and is partial to God's creatures.
He is 11" tall and is permanently attached to a white beveled wooden base.
His head and shoulders are made of cotton, stuffed, and hand painted. His beard and mustache are needle-felted sheep's wool.
His robe is made from vintage cotton quilt batting and is trimmed with old fashioned, tarnished, silver tinsel.
I made a faux feather tree from vintage crepe paper and perched a little, vintage, spun cotton dove on one of the branches. The middle tree stems my be positioned so that the tree is flat or dimensional (see photos 1 and 4 for the different looks).
I normally sell dolls in my Honeysuckle Lane Etsy shop, but since this one has a crepe paper faux feather tree, I thought he could join the other dolls with paper components here at Simple Joys Paperie. :)
Create your very own, one of a kind, winter white village with these charming handmade snow folk. Each item has a paper label on the bottom with the title and is signed and dated.
