Decorated Sleigh

I bought this sleigh a little while ago from Art from The Heart. I had seen it decorated in a mag and just knew I had to have one too!!!! I painted the edges with red paint and then added the papers....BG Fruitcake - vintage ornaments. Because the paper is really patterened I didn't really need to add any more embelishments except the button and the threaded beads. I use some craft tinsel for this to cheer things up and added a metal tree ornament....good old Santa hehe!

Here is the back but I may change the ornament later...not sure yet!

Over on Bubbly Funk we have done a Secret Advent Swap and where else is there to put all the little parcels???

Thank you so much for taking a look, I loved doing this one X

Fab way to decorate the sleigh, love it! The little button embellies look perfect on the fronts and I think it's fantastic for your advent gifts, great idea!

Karen that sleigh is really lovely and what a super place to put all your Advent goodies. You'll have some lovely ribbon bits to play with once they are all open.
