Tutorial: Personalized Sled Ornaments
I love personalized gifts! I think it shows a little bit of extra thoughtfulness when someone takes the time to add your name to a gift item. This year, I'm personalizing adorable wood sleighs that I can use as gift tags, and the recipient can use as an ornament. These are so easy to make that you can make a dozen in one craft sitting!
- Mini Wood Sleds, $0.57 each
- Paint, on hand
- Stickers, on hand
- Ribbon or string, on hand
- Alene's True Snow (optional), $2.50
Total: $0.57 and up
Step one: Paint the top of the sled white. (I ordered my sleds from Consumer Crafts.)
Step two: When the white paint has dried, use stickers to spell out the desired name.
Step three: Paint the entire sled the color of your choice. Allow it to dry.
Step four: Carefully peel off the stickers to reveal the white paint underneath.
(Optional) Step five: Spread True Snow on the sled to create the appearance of snow.
Pretty cute, don't you think? My name is not very common, so I always get excited when I receive a personalized gift like this. You could even make them for your own tree: names of grandchildren, pets, even favorite vacation spots. Have fun crafting and creating!Full disclosure policy.
