I created this after combining a few ideas I found for some cute kid friendly table decorations (place settings).
You will need:
Plastic cups (I used the square bottom red cups by Solo)
Candy canes (two per sled)
Cookies or candy
I started with these cups:
I needed to create a sleigh look so I drew lines on a cup and cut into it until I felt like I had something that resembled a sleigh. Honestly, this was the hardest part for me so I made sure I had extra cups!
After I had one sleigh cut the rest was pretty easy. Using the first cup as a "template" I placed another cup inside of it and traced the cut lines. From there I was able to make identical sleighs.
Next, I glued on trim which covered the rough edges of the cup. For this you just need decorative ribbon. I used a mini glue gun and simply placed small beads of glue in areas on the edge of the cup where I felt it was important to hold the ribbon in place.
Then I glued on two candy canes for the sleigh blades. Again, I used a hot glue gun but very sparingly to avoid destroying the candy. I placed a very thin line of glue on the bottom edges of the cup and then quickly placed the candy canes. It dries fast!
I added a little tissue paper in the bottom of each sleigh/cup and then positioned the cookies I made. I have seen similar sleighs with pre-made candies too.
My kids are really excited about bringing these to our holiday dinner!
