To begin, apply two coats of red craft paint to one side of the wooden craft stick. Make sure you allow the paint to dry between each coat. It doesn’t take much time, but ten minutes is usually enough.

Next, take one of the craft sticks and use the craft scissors to snip off the ends. This will leave you with a small rectangle that should be at least the length of three sticks placed together.

Place three of the craft sticks together, red side down. Glue a craft stick across the back of the three pieces to hold them together as one unit. Then, flip the sticks over again so the red side is exposed. Glue the small red segment across the end of the sticks as shown. This creates the front bumper on the sled.
