Today is my very favorite project of all of the 12 days!!!

 I bought a runner sled at a garage sale.  It was dirty and the rope was broken.  I cleaned it up and cut the rope off.

My brother found my ice skates from long ago and brought them to me.  It was a match made in heaven!!

I tied the skate laces together and looped them on the wood steering piece.

I used floral wire to secure the laces and the floral spray (that I found at Michaels) to the sled.

I cut part of the floral spray and put it in one of the skates.  I used wire to secure it to the skate by threading it through the lace holes.

I made a bow out of gold glitter tulle and attached it to the top of the sled with wire.

I tested it out in my craft room against the wall.

I moved it to my front porch.  I love it because the skates were mine!!!

I have had so much fun these past 12 days - there have been so many awesome projects!!!  I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!!!
