For Christmas, I made my traveling friends travel totems! Horses are symbols for travel, freedom, movement, courage, power... The design was inspired by scandinavian dala horses and rocking horses. I really love how they came out, and I think I may just have to make more!
Remember my Safe-Travel-Home-For-Christmas Totem Ornament? Same idea, just a 3D version of it with a jute tail!
They were cut from scrap maple we had from some other Christmas projects that I will share soon. I drew my design in pencil, painted with non-toxic acrylic paints, and sealed them with non-toxic artist's varnish. A hole was drilled and some jute was glued in for the tail.
And here's a picture of the ornament in action hanging on the tree! I'm really liking these and am itching to make some more!
