Wooden Rocking Horse Upcycle

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!
