I have been all about the Santa Suit this year...
I decided to decorate a couple of candy tubes
filled with black Sixlets on the bottom
to look like boots and the rest with red
Sixlets to look like his suit.  I wrapped 
a strip of black chalkboard tape from 
around the tube and cut a gold 
buckle to go on top...

The Santa hat is from the Silhouette Store 
and the twine is "Totally White" from
