No Christmas season is complete without the iconic Krampus. This traditional “bad cop” partner helps Saint Nicholas tell the tale of who is naughty and who is nice in graphic detail. Don’t be frightened by the grotesque Krampus as you construct this wire figure, wrapping him in cotton batting and curly vintage lamb’s wool. You’ll transform pre-cast German papier mâché faces into Krampus’ diabolical visage complete with requisite horns, a snakelike tongue, and extended ears. Sporting vintage chains, Krampus carries a woven wicker basket of coal and a bundle of birch switches. You’d better be good!
