Holiday Decor: Winter Sleigh Ride

Winter Sleigh Ride

With Christmas just around the corner, 22 days to be exact I wanted to share a fun DIY that I did for the kids. Mom’s if  your like me, when it comes to decorating for the holidays I am very picky when it comes to my Christmas Tree. The most you can help me with is unpacking the decoration, the rest is off limits. A few years back my husbands Grandmother gave the kids a singing snowman on a sleigh, normally i put it on a side table and throughout the holidays the kids would play around with it. This year I wanted to do a little more than just throwing it on a table and leaving it there.

Since Pinterest is a staple for m, I decided to check out some boards for holiday inspiration. I found a few that I loved and compiled a few ideas in order to come up with my own to do. I went with a Winter Sleigh Ride theme with Penguins the cutest ever and perfect for my family to enjoy. I wrote down a quick list of items that I needed and headed to Micheal’s as well as the Dollar store to pick them up.  It was an easy DIY and a great way to get the kids involved in Christmas decorating. Especially for those that like to decorate their tree themselves. Since this was so easy I wanted to share a few simple steps so you can enjoy this with your family along with a list of what you need to complete it.

Shopping List


  1. Place crafting lighting on surface and secure with double sided tape approximately 1 foot apart
  2. Place snow blanket on surface(banister) and secure with twist ties approximately 1 foot apart
  3. Place penguins on surface spaced out and secure the feet with twist ties
  4. In between Penguins place miniature trees throughout to look like a snow bank
