Esperanza dresses for Winter

Dress Your Santos for Winter

by Barbara Lee on December 22, 2012

My Santos, Esperanza, is always dressed for the season.  If you don’t own a santos, you might add some seasonal embellishments to a statue.  Angel statues are easy to dress up with just a little ribbon and greenery.  A stuffed bear can put on a sweater.  Tie a wide red ribbon around an outdoor reindeer statue and he is ready to greet guests for the holidays.

I gathered together some fresh greenery, jewelry, ribbon, and garland.
I thought Esperanza would look lovely in pearls and I clipped on an earring for extra sparkle.  Her crown is woven with some gold flowers from an old garland.  

A vintage pin tops a burgundy ribbon.


She holds a spray of cedar, berries and gold garland.


She looks quite regal in her gold embellished crown.  Pearls are wrapped around her neck, punctuated with an extra jewel. I surrounded her with fresh greenery that sends its Christmas scent throughout the house.

Esperanza is ready for Christmas!
