1962 Popular Mechanics Christmas Wood Plans Reindeer Hoisting Sack; Santa Space Capsule; Nativity

Looking for unique Christmas wood patterns? The Douglas Fir are coming into popularity, but I enjoy the cutting and painting myself.

Popular Mechanics December 1962 starts off with Santa on the roof (would be great for houses with a low roof) reaching down as one of his reindeer, standing on the back of another reindeer, hand up his sack of toys. Another reindeer lounges in the flower beds.

The next is a simple Santa-less sleigh and reindeer silhouette that goes on your garage door. Santa is another pattern and is made to look as if he's entering the front door.

Because it was 1962, the next vintage wood Santa is in a space capsule with a parachute attached.

Last is a nativity silhouette with Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and the 3 Wise Men.

All of these designs are on a grid, or you could cut the small "transparencies" out of the magazine, cover them with clear nail polish, and project them on to your work surface.
