The 12 Posts of Christmas, Day 7: Cutest. Sleigh. Ever.

Inside: Crafters, time to lift that glue gun from its holster and make some adorable stocking stuffers. Or just admire the creativity of whoever thought this up. Cutest. Sleigh. Ever.

So adorable! A little bundle of cuteness that would fit perfectly in any stocking.

Short post today, my friends! I’ve got that making and baking thing to do. Add cleaning to the list, too. Trying to embrace the latter with a little Bing and maybe a little Judy Garland and even Eartha Kit (“Santa Baby”). I love the classic Christmas tunes I grew up hearing!

Anyway. . . Last year I remember walking into Hub’s office and finding this sweet (pun intended) little candy sleigh on his desk. Our pastor’s grandkids had put these together and handed them out to staff. Such a creative idea and good way to teach giving to your kids. (Kudos to Tamara for being a cool mom!)

This little sleigh is so cute that I needed to show it off. Now I’ll be the first one to admit I have not tried this myself, but it looks easy to assemble and make a half dozen or so. Upon taking it apart–someone had to eat it because Mike is strict with his diet (sometimes you just have to take one for the team)–runners are candy canes glued to the bottom of the base of the sleigh–a Kit-Kat. The presents are six assorted miniature Hershey bars. These are stacked pyramid style on top of the Kit-Kat and held together with a light touch from a glue gun and tied with a bright red-and-white striped string, first going up and down and then side to side. A simple miniature bow tops off the sleigh.

Folks, it’s getting down to the wire, so this might be one of those projects you file away for Christmas 2018. Did I just say that–Christmas 2018? Let’s not even think that far ahead and just concentrate on this year first–but you know what I mean.

Happy Day 7 of the 12 Posts of Christmas!

P.S. Credit goes to Emily, my daughter, for taking this picture and including it in her picture of the day challenge from last year.
