Growing up, my mom had one of those Flexible Flyer Sleds. Somehow she would manage to fit herself with four kids on it, and we would go flying down the mountain sides! So, this year, I decided to make her some little Popsicle Stick Sled Ornaments to put on her tree since we're too far away to enjoy her sled with her this year.
I used regular sized Popsicle sticks and arranged them like so:
Then I used a rotary tool with a very small drill bit to drill a hole in each end of the "foot rest".
I threaded some yarn through each end and tied it, and I was done!
Actually, I made three sleds and Mod Podged a picture of each of my kids on one, but didn't get a picture of the finished product. Either way, the ornaments are adorable and I sure hope my mom loves them!
Thank you The Craft Patch for the cute inspiration!
