Ingredients
  • 3 Miniature craft sticks
  • 4 Standard craft sticks
  • Twine
  • Tacky craft glue or hot glue
  • Red acrylic paint
  • Silver acrylic paint
  • Antiquing medium
  • Paper towels
  • Paintbrushes
  • Wax paper
  • Scissors
Instructions
  1. After gathering supplies, lay 3 miniature craft sticks flat on a piece of wax paper. Stagger them slightly so the middle stick pops out, then glue them together side by side.

  2. Use sharp scissors to snip a small board from the extra craft stick (about 1 1/4 inches long).

  3. When the glue is dry, invite your child to paint their sled, board, and sled runners. 

  4. When the glue is dry, invite your child to paint their sled, board, and sled runners. We painted our sled ornaments red and yellow and painted our sled runners silver.

  5. Attach the runners and board to the sled with hot glue or tacky craft glue.

  6. Next, glue a loop of twine to the back of the ornament.

  7. If desired, use a metallic Sharpie marker to label the sleds with the year and your child’s name.

  8. Your rustic wooden sled ornament is complete!
