Introduction: Runners Pull Santa's Sleigh

About: I'm a maker. I like the challenge of re-using discarded materials or using common objects/materials to create something intriguing and visually interesting . Cardboard is a go-to material. Bonus: if I can also…

My sister owns a running shoe store in Oakland. Normally her window display includes some generic posable figures sort of running. For the holidays, I thought they needed a bit of a festive upgrade.

Step 1: Runners As Reindeer

First, I made little headbands out of craft foam with antlers on them. I used hot glue for the adhesive.

Step 2: Need a Santa

Also out of craft foam I made a Santa hat for one of the figures. From black foamcore I made a sleigh for Santa - filled with little wrapped presents. The sleigh was held together with hot glue. Colored pencil was used to put some detail on the sleigh.

Step 3: Attach Some Reins

For the reins I used a string of fairy lights that were on a remote control.

Step 4: Voila!

The result: A fun, festive window display that lights up as the sun goes down!
