I made these carolers for my mother 30 years ago. She’d stopped using them a couple of years back and last Christmas returned them to me. I gave them a fresh coat of paint and put them out next to our house with a floodlight on them and few white sparkly lights on the fence behind them. They make me smile each night when I pull in the driveway after class.
Last year, I tried making a reindeer from wood using some old logs. It was okay but fell apart over the summer. We recently had some trees taken down. I used the fresh timber to make this guy. I’m getting better and faster at making them.
