The Safari Santa, closely inspired by Collector’s Weekend Design winner Jessica Watts’ safari needlework, is unlike any other Vaillancourt Santa. Wearing traditional safari colors and tones of forest green and khakis, this Santa is ready for the wild outdoors. With binoculars painted around his neck, there is a lion and zebra painted on his coat and a long necked giraffe in his back sack.
