So my hubby was cleaning out his mother's attic recently. He found these 2 old wooden sleds. He knew I would find some crafty way to spruce them up. Gotta love that man for being so thoughtful! Here are the before photos of the sleds:
For inspiration I spend a few minutes perusing Pinterest. I love snowmen, So I knew the frosty creatures would be involved somehow. I also like to remember the focus of Christmas is Christ. That was my inspiration for the other sled.
The snowman sled was completely hand painted by me. I used some Glimmer Mist to give the red background a snowy look. The photos don't really show it, but the snowmen sparkle! I added glitter to the final coat of pain as I finished them up.
The Joy sled got a few coats of paint. I cut the design using my Silhouette Cameo and some Oracal 651 vinyl.
I created the floral arrangements and bows for each and attached them. I added some sleigh bells to the Snowman sled too.
The best part? The only thing I had to buy for this project was some ribbon! Everything else was crafty supplies I had on hand!
Now my porch is looking quite pretty for the season!
