Nothing spells Christmas more than a snow sleigh!
Before we go further? I also have an extra surprise for you. The Junkers United team are coming along for the ride today. So including 12 Dayers, that’s 16 brand new projects in total! Wow!
So much junk, so little time. So let’s get to it…
This little sleigh has been around. Last Christmas you saw it in my kitchen windows HERE. But today, its got a new outfit.
I started with a couple of pallet wood planks. They were cut to size, and waxed with Miss Mustard Seed’s Antiquing Wax.
I really like wax. It’s fast, clean, and I liked the really dark pigment this round, as it suited the original sleigh wood.
Ms. Hackfest to the rescue…
“I very scientifically inserted a self adjusting screw mechanism into the wood shelf, with precise synchronized rotation.”
Once the screw was protruding just the right amount, I hammered it into place under the metal railing for a tight fit.
That move ought to win a hackfest award if I do say so myself.
Some cut logs were set in place, and votives of different sized were scattered around.
Spray snow, followed by plastic snow for bulk, then finally cranberries finished it off.
Seems to be a habit. Last year’s was too!
And it kinda goes without saying, battery operated tea lights left unattended in a bathroom would be safest. Especially on wood. Real candles were used for photos only.
