Recycled Milk Bottle - Christmas Sleigh
3 litre plastic milk bottle
Cord or edging (optional)
This Recycled Christmas craft shows you how to make a Christmas santa sleigh decoration using recyled plastic. The milk bottle size is perfect for a table decoration. Add napkins, nuts or other knick knacks.
Santa sleigh. From a - Recycled - juice bottle.
Use the instruction sheet below for directions - following the cutting lines , I used a 3 ltr bottle, you could use a smaller one but this size was ideal for a table decoration.
Once you have cut out your sleigh pieces , cover them with red felt , if you want to put sweets, or nuts inside just cover the outside, so that it can be washed out after.
Glue the sides on leaving enough spare to wrap over the top edge 1/4 inch or equivalent.
Now cover your underneath section ,this goes on the bottom and up the back with the same allowance to wrap over the top.
Now cover the front section allow 1/4 inch all around to wrap over.
Glue the front section in place.
You can decorate all your edges with either cord or beading as shown.
Depending on how artistic you are you could fabric paint a design on the sides or add store bought Christmas embellishments.
