Patty ate her sleigh



We told the girls Santa may arrive by boat this year.

Nevertheless, one rainy afternoon Jan and Laura set out to make some sleighs.


Candy cane runners, Hershey Crackle™ candies, and, of course, a glue gun.  Jan saw it all on the internet.



Pulling the parts from stock for assembly.



Several hands required.



Ready the bow.



Final assemblies, ready for teachers and friends.



Their friend Patty ate hers right from the mantle.

  2. Thank goodness you included pictures; my first thought was that you were hot gluing the actual(wrapperless)candy.

  4. Clever, cute, charming. What a great way to spend a soggy, dark and wet afternoon. Will Santa ride one of those to my house?

  7. I see the candy cane runners, KitKat bases, then some small rectangular things I'm unfamiliar with, layered about three deep? All tied together and finished with a bow. That's a fabulous idea!
