We are adding the craft to your Craft Projects.
The project was added to your Craft Projects.
In the Designer's Words: "How to make a decorative Swedish Dala horse with an American twist using recycled materials for Christmas and all year long. Includes free printable pattern."
Add vintage Christmas crafts to your home décor this December when you create this papier mache cute. The Darling DIY Dala Horse is modeled after a Swedish tradition, adding some old world love to any room. Created by making the Dala horse design before applying mod podge to the outside, you could easily transform this holiday craft for your space. This particular example uses old book pages, but you could easily use colorful tissue paper or even wrapping paper for a brighter option.
