In the middle of the wall hanging is a figure of Santa Claus in a red and green robe, hoisting a star spangled bag of toys and sporting a long beard. Above the Santa Claus is a banner with the word “Christmas” on it and red holly berries made of plastic. There are snowflakes sprinkled on the frame of the wall hanging along with a picture of a snowman, trees and snow-covered houses.

The Father Christmas Wall Hanging (SKU# 56560) is to be used as a decoration in the home or hung on the front door of a home to welcome guests during the Christmas holiday.
