I spotted some Reindeer in Poundland the other month
and much to The Docs horror stopped in front of the counter
where they had been piled up.
The Doc was even more agast when I popped a gold
one into my shopping basket.
"Are you sure you really want that " he said
and "Where is it going to go ?" he added.
It's OK . I have a plan I said.
The previous week I had bought a MDF Sleigh
from NEC and I was fairly sure he would fit just fine
First things first though.
He needed a good scrub as he was discarding
glitter left, right and centre and I didn't dare bring him
into the house!
Then a good coat of paint solved the problem.
The MDF sleigh came in pieces
which I decided to decoupage with
some paper also bought at the NEC.
I have done one side of each piece and left to dry
but forgot to take another photo before I assembled
the completed sleigh. Doh!
Once all dry
The pieces slotted together very easily.
My idea was to have as a table decoration
and to be filled with flowers.
I used Adhesive glitter foam sheets for the roses
which I die cut using Spellbinders 'Rose Creations'.
I peeled the backing paper off and turned the die cuts over
and made the flowers up backwards so that the sticky side was up.
A quick covering of matching glitter which stuck (like glue)
and here they are.
Ivy leaves from the garden.
The Doc I'm relived to say likes it!!
Elf commandeered the sleigh to get home to the North Pole
but sent it back again. on pixie dust.
