Christmas Sleigh with Birds Of A Feather

Check out the new December kit from Birds Of A Feather, it is so festive and just plain gorgeous!

I am having a blast with it so far.
I bought this wooden sleigh at a local thrift store several months ago and I have been waiting (almost impatiently) to alter it. This kit I got in the mail is PERFECT for it.
I painted all of the sides bright red before applying the paper and ModgePodge to give it a finished look.

For the presents I wrapped wooden blocks from my stash with cute Christmas paper and finished them off with a bow, tag and a poinsettia.

Want to know how to make this tree?

Step 1. Cut out 7-8 green circles ranging from 1 1/2 inches to 4 inches.

Step 2. Fold each circle in half, then in half again and again until you have 4 points.

Step 3. Poke a hole in each circle large enough for a 1/8 inch wooden dowel to poke through. Poke them all through starting with the smallest to biggest. Use your hot glue gun to attach each circle to the dowel so they don't slip off.

You're done! You can add ornaments to your tree or add some sparkly faux snow.

Thanks for looking! :)
