I have had this old sled in our closet for years now and have never actually displayed it at Christmas, as it isn't my style.  So, this year I decided to make it over.  I decoupaged patterned scrapbook paper to it and I made the number tags using chipboard and coordinating paper.  I then hammered nails into the sled to hang the numbers...and viola
