Thuy from My Paper Wheel shows us how to create a house for Santa's letters. It's a special place your kids can keep their wish list and it can be a memorable tradition year after year!

DIY: Letters to Santa House

With the Christmas just around the corner and we are starting to decorate our home for the holidays. Letters to Santa will be starting soon and I am here to share with you a cute idea for your letters to Santa.


Cardboard House (I found mine at Michael’s for under $3.00 before using my 40% off coupon)

Washi Tape

White Pom Pom ribbon

Baker’s Twine

Chalkboard Cards (found in most craft stores)

Mini Clothespin (found in most craft stores)


I liked the look of the natural color of the house. If you wanted, the house would be very cute painted first. I simply took some of the white pom pom ribbon and hot glued it to the top of the house. I took some red and white stripe washi tape and outlined the rest of the house.

I used the baker twine and attached it in the corner of the house with hot glue and added the little chalkboard card sign and wrote “Letters to Santa” with chalk and attached it with a mini clothespin. Viola! Easy and super simple. This is something you could bring out every Christmas season and have the kids place their letters to Santa in there and in return, Santa can leave them messages too!

Happy crafting!
