Yesterday, I stumbled upon an awesome DIY toy tutorial for a stick horse. I could not believe the flood of memories that came back from my childhood. When I was about four years old, I went through a cowgirl phase. I loved dressing up in my boots and hat and riding my “horse” around the house. Those were great times!
If you are interested in making a stick horse for a loved one, check out The Country Chic Cottage. She has a full photo tutorial that goes step-by-step through the process. You will need a sewing machine for this project.
Make sure when you buying supplies such as the faux leather, yarn, felt, thread, etc. to use a coupon. Hobby Lobby usually has one for 40% off a non-sale item.
Try adding more color to the horse by using colored faux leather material and/or suede lace for the halter (ex: pink). Just add a coordinating bandana for the horse’s neck and you are set!
