Elf on the Shelf Sleigh by Lesley

Hey everyone.
I hope you're all cracking on with your Christmas will soon creep up on us!

My twins (like every other kid) are really into The Elf on the Shelf. Its hard work coming up with daily ideas for the entire month of December. But it got me thinking whether I could utilise any crafts parts...….

I've had this sleigh in my stash for a while but had never got around to using it. 

I started off by gluing it together and priming it with gesso. 

The bottom part was painted with a liquid metal paint.
And then I used metallic green and red on the top part.

A touch of green wax was used on the edges.

No Christmas project is complete without a touch of sparkle! I used liquid glue and chunky glass glitter to cover the seat.

I look forward to using the sleigh with the elf next month!

Thanks for reading.
