Christmas Sleds and Skates and My Christmas Booth

I have been very busy putting together some Christmas items for my booth.  I collected old sleds and skates at estate sales throughout the year.  This sled got a coat of red spray paint, a large burlap bow, and this upholstery webbing "Believe".

I saw a similar sled on Pinterest.  It was from the Dear Lillie blog.

The other sled got a coat of creamy white paint and and the number 25 that I stenciled.
These burlap bows were inspired by Restore Interiors.  There is a great video tutorial there.
The skates also got a burlap bow and "Noel".  These upholstery webbing tags were very easy to make.  I just stenciled the letters on with black paint and a small alphabet stencil that I purchased from Michaels.
And here it all is at my booth located in the Big Bend Antique Gallery in Maplewood, Missouri.
I made a bunch of signs from reclaimed wood.  I used a Martha Stewart script stencil for the lettering.

An old  red wagon got  a Merry Christmas stencil and bow.

A stenciled book bundle.

And buckets so cute for holding Christmas trees.
