How to Make a Santa Costume

When it comes to dressing up like Santa, making your own costume far outweighs the potential cost of renting. First of all, you don't know what the person before you did in that rented Santa suit. Second, a Santa suit is simply comprised of a jacket, pants and a hat. You can salvage a pair of black boots and a black belt from anywhere. Steal some jingle bells form the tree and you are good to go.

Believe it or not, I could only find online how-to's that tell you what to buy to 'put together' a good Santa costume. There were no direct instructions on making the jacket, hat and pants. I'll have to post my own complete step-by-step tutorial soon. Until then, here are a few how-to's on throwing together that perfect Santa get-up.
