A Winter Sled

Good morning

Today I would like to share with you some pictures of a little wooden sled which I made on the weekend retreat with Rosemary Merry.
When I was told about the project I was a bit unsure, but when it was finished, I LOVE IT !
This is the finished sled. The papers were by Bo Bunny. The sign and sign holder were already printed on the paper. The letters were die cut and had white doodleing around the edges. These were stuck on with foam pads.

The red spotty ribbon was wrapped around the sled and tied in a knot. I made a bow with the blue gingham ribbon, placed the green rik rac ribbon accross the bow and then tied with bakers twine which was then threaded through the button and tied in a knot.This was then glued onto the red spotty ribbon.
I went  over the 'metal work' of the sign with glossy accents to make it stand out more.

I also went over the holly berries with red stickles. Sorry the photos are a bit blurred.
A length of raffia was wrapped around to make the handle, by which to hang it up. The wooden sled was painted in an off white acrylic paint and then had blue ink distressing on it.

I hope you like this project, and forgive my blurry pictures

Happy Crafting
