Santa Claus Yard Display

I wanted a Sleigh with Santa and a reindeer that were made out of wood that weren't just white. I bought the plywood and used my Ryobi tools, circular saw, sander, drill, jig saw, and handheld vac to do the project. Cutting out the pieces was very time consuming. I really surprised myself with the painting as it wasn't as hard to do as I thought. Figuring out how to make it stand up was a challenge. I used a 1x4 and hinged to the back for a support and than used eye bolts in the bottom. I than put a tent stake through the eye bolt to hold the display up.

  • Monica I've been wanting to make something like this. Did you have a template or did you free hand the drawing before cutting it out? I love it. Jon
