These are some sled ornaments that I made from popsicle sticks. I cut the sticks to shape on my scroll saw. If you’re interested I made a youtube video the process. I also did an instructable which includes the patterns for the different sleds, if your interested in making your own. The link for the instructable can be found in the description on the youtube video.

Now those are really cute. Thanks for the video and instructions. Just a suggestion, I would “stack cut ” the runner and cross members, for that matter, the matching top pieces also. If you are making multiple sleds you could do several at once, stack cutting.

That’s a really good suggestion. I’ll definitely give it a try next time I batch some of these out!

Looks good Derek. Lets break that scrollsaw out. Many projects can be made with a scrollsaw. If you are going to sell them maybe take orders and scroll names in the steering bar. Does bring back memories. I bet kids today have no idea what that is. As mentioned stack cutting about 4 or 5 at a time and you really can pump them out. Nice job. Thanks for showing.

Derek,These are really nice. I have to warn you though, I started making my version about three or four years ago and now I have to make 50 or more every Christmas! Last year I made 85! When word gets out, your going to be busy! Nice job and I really like the design and video.

I just went and checked your sled out. Those are great! Your son and niece are quite the artists!
