My Crafty Sunday

A couple of years ago, my boys were digging though our garage, and found an old sled. It's been laying around here and there, but I never wanted to throw it away. It's one of those things that I love, but at the same time was never sure what really to do with it. Until today.

It went from this:

 To this:

 I picked the pine from our back yard, and bought the ribbon for a dollar at the Dollar Store. I was nervous about the bow, because my bow-makin Aunt now lives in Texas. However, going on YouTube and typing in "How to make a bow" did it!!

I love it! Maybe I'll strip it down again, and put it away with our Christmas decorations and dress it up every year.
