December 1st is here and Christmas festivities and crafts can finally begin. This year, like last year, I chose to make a unique pack to fill each day and make a Santa’s sleigh with reindeers. If you want to reproduce this sleigh you can download the files at the bottom of the article and follow the step by step. You can use it for Christmas decoration or advent calendar. You can also print the reindeer several times to make a larger crew.
– the file printed on thick paper
– burlap or a little bag
– scissors, glue, cutter
– ribbon and colored twine
– 24 numbers tags (there is a silhouette file to download on the botttom of this post)
Glue the elements of the sleigh on the cardboard. Warning! You must stick only the two sides of the sled, one side of the backrest and the seat (large rectangle).
Cut the reindeers.
Cut the different parts of the sleigh and glue the other faces.
Assemble the sleigh. I did not indicate the location of the notches because everything will depend on the thickness of your cardboard. Make marks with a pencil and dig the cardboard to drive the backrest and seat. Feel free to cut the elements on the side of the rectangles to suit the thickness of your cardboard.
Glue both sides of reindeer. Warning! Do not stick the legs as you will use them to hold the reindeer upright.
You can add a colored twine to make the reins.
Et voilà! Your sleigh is ready to receive the little gifts every day.
Aren’t they too cute?
Do you like this advent calendar? Did you make one?
