Start now and you will have this adorable sleigh and reindeer set ready to decorate your home for the holidays. The sleigh will hold gifts, poinsettias or pine boughs. There are no fasteners needed for assembly since all of the plywood parts simply interlock. And the whole display can be dismantled in seconds and stored flat.
Full-size, traceable patterns are given for all of the parts as well as diagrams for painting the ivy and bell details and reindeer features. Even a beginner can do an expert job of cutting the curved parts with only hand tools. Bells can be added to the reindeer harness and a colorful ribbon used for reins. Two different head positions are shown for the reindeer. The sleigh is 17 inches wide, 36 inches long and 31 inches high. The reindeer are 10 inches wide, 22 inches long and 25 inches high.
