The last of my Santa belt decorations is from yours truly. Since I had so many Santa belt items to decorate my kitchen table with, I decided to make the table itself look like a Santa belt. I started with a basic polyester Holiday Red round tablecloth then added a black polyester table runner across the top. I centered a gold napkin on top of the runner to simulate the belt buckle. Then I placed a folded black napkin on top to complete the belt. It took me less than 5 minutes. (I’m happy to say that my quilting friends were very impressed when they came to my annual Christmas dinner party.)
