GrUbBy Candlestick Sleigh

Using the same grubby recipe as the previous candlestick, I also grubbied up a wooden sleigh and glued the candlestick to it, added a berry and pinecone mini wreath, and then glued on more pinecones and berries up around the candle. This is one of my husband's favorites. I originally intended to do this with a battery operated candlestick - for use where there is no outlet plug for convenience. But I was having so much trouble with those battery operated candles - sometimes they would light and most often they wouldn't. It was aggravating so I decided to go with an electric one after all.
I tied a homespun bow onto the front, and sprayed a fabric stiffner to give it some body.
