"Toy Sleds"

Submitted by Lisa Sett of Thousand Oaks, CA


4 candy canes (in the wrappers)
1 small new or gently used and clean stuffed toy approx. 3" to 5"
1 small pinch of crinkle paper or spagnum moss
1 small silk or plastic spray (use an old outdated candle ring)
1 small bow or ribbon to tie on toys neck
low temp. glue gun
opt: white glue and glitter for snow or a dab of white paint will work fine


Warm up glue gun. Hold the 4 candy canes together and run a small bead of glue to hold in place. Let cool. Add more glue if needed. Sled should hold together. Sit toy in place to see placement of moss. Remove toy, glue dab of moss in place. Glue greenery facing front and back of sled. Glue toy in place. Add small dabs of white glue on tips of ears and nose. Sprinkle with glitter.

A metal Christmas tree hook goes right under the ribbon or scarf on toys neck. GREAT for filling in gaps in the tree. Use the branch below hooked branch for support. They will look like they are sledding right off the tree.
