Santa Boot Bows

Do you remember how exciting Christmas time was as a child? Remember the sounds, the smells, and the beautifully wrapped gifts everywhere you turned? If you’re not a professional gift wrapper (like myself) then these Santa boot bows are perfect for you. Turn any ordinary red bow into something more magical, fun, and special to look at. If you prefer to use gift bags, this is the best DIY way to turn an ordinary gift bag into something exciting to give and receive!

Supplies needed to make bows with Santa boots:

What a I love most about crafts is that there is more than one right way to make them! Just like baking cookies, making casseroles, or preparing your favorite crock pot recipe, you can mix things up and get creative! Your craft supplies for making Santa Boot Bows don’t have to be exactly what I used. Use what you have on hand and don’t stress if you can’t find the exact cardstock I did. Creativity makes the world turn. I used red satin ribbon, sparkly white cardstock, black cardstock, sparkly gold cardstock, scissors and hot glue. If kids are making these bows, tacky glue or Elmer’s glue works too! Just allow for more drying time.

The white glitter adds neat texture and contrast to the flat black paper of Santa’s boots. It reminds me of snow! Mixed with the soft shiny red satin, the look of Santa’s boots are so perfectly cute! Santa’s belt is complete with a little touch of gold.

This holiday gift wrapping idea is perfect for anybody to make! Kids can use regular white school glue instead of hot glue. This would be a neat way to wrap parent gifts in the classroom. Consider using construction paper and red ribbon from the dollar store to make this craft more kid friendly.

You Will Need

  • Red satin ribbon
  • Sparkly white cardstock
  • Black cardstock
  • Sparkly gold cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue (or regular glue if kids are making them)


  1. Start by making a template of Santa’s boot. Draw a boot on black cardstock that is as thick as the red satin ribbon you’re using.
  2. Draw a white rounded rectangle a little wider than the red satin ribbon in white glittery cardstock.
  3. Cut a small square out of the sparkly golden cardstock.
  4. Using the black boot, white rounded rectangle, and golden square as stencil templates, make as many boot sets as you need. Tip: make them in advance and quickly add them to any gift during the busy holiday season! You’ll thank yourself later:)
  5. Add a simple red bow to any gift you need to wrap.
  6. Using hot glue, attach the boots (in opposite facing directions) at the end of the red ribbon strands.
  7. Add the rounded white rectangle over the black boots.
