This thrift store rocking horse started out very different.
I was intrigued to learn more about this wood rocking horse after seeing a tag on the bottom. It was made at Rolla Area Sheltered Workshop in Rolla, MO. Somehow it made its way all the way down to Arizona. I couldn’t find out much about the workshop except that it has been a production workshop since 1970. So, this little horse definitely has a story to tell.
Now, it has a Christmas story.
I bought this sign for $6 at Big Lots and thought the Merry Christmas part would look great on it. Of course, I added glitter.
Just use Mod Podge and pour glitter on. Then, shake it off. Taylor Swift style!
I added red burlap to the back and glued it on the horse.
I also had a small wooden christmas tree from The Wood Connection and thought this horse needed a seat.
Added some pretty lace and a plaid bow that I bought at Big Lots. It is actually an ornament.
If you see a wooden horse like this in a thrift store, snag it. They are so cute at Christmas time!
Keep this season creative, festive and upcycle something cute!
