I saw this sled in a Flea/Antique Market near my place the first time we visited.
The second time...I bought it and paid $17.00 even.
I had thought about it since seeing it and decided that "yes" I could
make it pretty for my Burlap & Bling theme!
But, can you see the potential in it?
I spraypainted the sliders (is that the word? Wouldn't know I'm from Canada! haha)
a gold colour after dismantling the sled.
Then chalk painted the wooden section with two coats in antique white.
I also put little pads on the bottom of the rails/sliders
because my plan was to hang it on my glass front door.
with some gold wire ribbon pinned into it on the bow section.
Then wired the pearls and the flower onto the frame.

Got out my glue gun for a couple of pine cones to be
And, it was finished!
I tried the traditional hook over the door for a wreath and the top of the sled
wowwed outward, so I tried a wire clothes hanger, and it still wowwed outward.
Then...I braided some hemp string I had (to make it stronger) and it worked
perfectly to make it lay flat as well as it went with the natural part of the theme!
What do you think?
Day four tomorrow!
Going to show you how to make a basket of Christmas Love with
pinecones, bling & lights!
