Santa' sleigh and reindeer

I made these reindeer from a half inch sheet of plywood and
using a pattern, I traced them out and cut the plywood using a jig saw.
They are easy to take apart and store too. I found the wicker sleigh a few years back at an auction that was taking place for an old theater company and this was one of their props. I was really lucky to get it for $10.00.It was red so I spray painted it white. I am a big fan of spray paint!!
You can make anything old look new again, with a can of paint.

HI Deb...Love your name! That's what my dad always called me. I love your ideas! My friends always tell me that if it stand still long enough I will spray paint it! Or as my friend Linda says..."That would look good if you painted it black." lol Thanks for visiting my blog. I can't wait to see more of yours...Debbie

Hi Deb...Back to look at the reindeer. I am so impressed that you can use a jig saw! I'm afraid that if I tried that people would say..."That's nice, but what is it?" lol I bet it's cold up there. We just had our first hard freeze. Thanks for the visit. Have a great evening...Debbie
