Mini Sled Ornament

I made this sled using mini popsicle sticks, so it's the perfect size to hang on a tree.  I got the pattern for the sled from Serendipity Refined, though I didn't sketch it, so after making a few that didn't look right, I had to look at the post more closely to get the proper placement of things.

I put the sled together with hot glue (I tried regular white glue first, but it took so long to dry and didn't seem stable).

It looked a little plain so I decided to spruce it up with some mini pinecones I'd found last year that I partially spray painted gold (so you get gold tips but brown elsewhere), two leaves with glossy accents (so they would have a bit of dimension) and a tiny poinsettia (using one of the new Spellbinders dies).
