Santa’s popcorn garland crew is a special part of his tree decorating team.  Each mouse in Santa’s popcorn garland crew is carefully trained in the art of making and stringing this traditional Christmas tree garland decoration. Here you see their procedure as one mouse strings the popcorn and the others arrange the strung garland around the tree.

“'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;”………
But that’s not exactly true because Santa’s little mouse Christmas tree decorating team is very busy at work, for it is their job to make sure that all the Christmas trees are fully decorated by Christmas morning.

For this one I used Stonehenge 90lb paper and I drew out my design in colored pencil and then did my painting with my Winsor Newton Acrylic paint and finished it with acrylic semi-gloss varnish.
