My kid decided he was too old for trick-or-treating this year, but not too old for a Christmas parade. Before moving here I was never really into parades. Standing around in questionable weather? Nah, thanks. Discovering night parades swayed my grinchy mind. The lights! The magic! *swoon*
And while these wee things aren't all lit up (although you could absolutely add lights!) I'm smitten with the bright sparkly cheeriness of these wee floats.
To make these little floats I simply added Wheels 1 inch Fancy and Wheels 1.5 inch Straight to Chunky ATC Blanks.
Then it's just a matter of filling up those floats! I've used bottlebrush trees, miniature packages and decorations and a vintage looking Santa. All of those bits were bought in the holiday aisle at the discount shop.
Cute. Easy. Inexpensive. Yes please!
I have a little video to show you exactly how to put these pretty things together right HERE.
I need to make a slew of these to create an entire holiday parade for my mantle!
Want to make your own too? Here are the supplies I used:
Tiny gift and ornament baubles
Plastic vintage looking Santas
Thin dowling or bamboo sticks
