We’d like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays with our Santa Claus Monkey Amigurumi!!
This is our most festive looking monkey amigurumi to date! For those of you who are wondering, yes, we are missing one monkey. But don’t worry, our November monkey amigurumi will not be left out. Promise!
Our Santa Claus monkey amigurumi sits proudly on display in front of our Christmas tree. All the little Christmas decorations we collected over the years really came in handy for this photo shoot. The little house was just the right size for taking pictures with the Santa monkey amigurumi. Time for some side views!
Since we couldn’t find a small white pom pom for the tip of the hat, we had to crochet a tiny ball out of another type of fuzzy yarn. Not as round as a pom pom would have been, but it still works right? :)
For this monkey, we did some things differently…like the green hands and feet. We wanted our Santa Claus monkey amigurumi to look like it was actually wearing gloves and boots. Then to top it all off, we just lined them with some fuzzy wires.
What’s also special about this monkey amigurumi is the white beard. Instead of using something like cotton for the beard, we just decided to go with felt. Using something like cotton for the beard probably wouldn’t last as long. After a while, it’d probably start losing hair (or cotton fibers) there! That wouldn’t be good… Cutting the beard was very easy. All I did was cut out a square, folded it in half, and cut only one side of the beard so that it’d come out symmetrical.
We also made a Christmas tree topper this year too!
Like our random Christmas decorations? There’s a ferris wheel, nutcracker, house, and big crystal cubes! Our Santa Claus monkey amigurumi is so festive! It makes all of our previous monkey amigurumis look plain! Don’t worry, there’s still New Years to outdo this Santa Claus monkey amigurumi :]!!
