Dollhouse Miniature Sled

It seems like forever since I recorded a video!! The area where I live has had some horrid winter weather- snow, ice, flooding, slides and power outages. Since Christmas I have been snowed in off and on for about 2 weeks, I am soooo tired of winter and snow and cold weather. However, before we leave the season I thought maybe the kids that live in the dollhouse might want to go sledding on their snow days home from school. So the project this week is a fun and easy sled.

The materials list is really small for this one- 2 regular size craft sticks, 3 skinny sticks, a short piece of light string (I used embroidery floss)

You will also need glue, something to cut the wood pieces with, a ruler, a pencil and scissors.

I cut the skinny sticks for the top of the sled at 2” and the little cross pieces at 1”.

For the runners mark at 2 ¾” and using this mark as your long edge cut at a 45 degree angle.

For the rope cut the string at 5 ¼”

How you finish this sled is up to you. I am going to leave mine plain this time but I have painted many of them as decorative sleds over the years. They look cute no matter how you use them.
