Wooden Sled Ornament Craft
Acrylic craft paint
Holiday sprigs (I got mine from Joann, but Amazon carries similar)
Ribbon or twine
White school or Tacky glue
Floral wire cutters
Measure and using either the floral wire cutters or craft scissors, cut your craft sticks into the following: (4)-2 ½” pieces, (2)-3 ½ cm pieces and (1)-1 ¾” piece
Paint your smaller pieces one colour (be sure to paint the edges) and paint 2 full size craft sticks, which will be the blades of the sled another colour and allow the paint to dry completely.
Glue the (4)-2 ½” pieces together, using either a glue gun or the White school or Tacky glue. Begin by gluing the 2 middle pieces together, joining them together in the middle and allow the glue to dry completely. (Do this for each piece(s) you glue onto each other). Glue the next 2 pieces on either side, but measure down 1 cm, so your sled doesn’t go straight across on all 4 pieces (see photo)
Once the 4 main pieces are totally dry, turn over. Measure down 1 ½ cm from the top and glue down one of the 3 ½ cm pieces onto the body of the sled. Measure up ½ cm from the bottom and glue the other 3 ½ cm piece.
Take your 1 ¾” piece and measure in 1 ½ cm on the right side and glue on your blades. We have the tip of our blade measuring out about 1 ½ cm from where we glued it on. Repeat on the other side. Be sure your glue is totally dry, and the blades are on sturdy before moving onto the next step.
Turn the sled over and attach any embellishments or holiday greenery you like.
Cut a length of ribbon or twine approximately 7-8”, form a loop and tie in a small secure knot at the end. Allow to dry completely.
Hang on your tree and enjoy!
