Follow this tutorial to learn how to make an easy origami Santa’s sleigh for Christmas. This origami sled is very easy to make. Makes a great decoration for Christmas time! 

This origami sleigh is made from 2 sheets of square paper.
I suppose you could use just the one module, but if you want it to have two sections, make two of them and slot them together.

I suppose you could make more than two.. It could be a three-seat-sled!

This origami Santa’s sleigh is based on the traditional origami Chinese chair.

I don’t currently have an origami Santa to put in it, but my little reindeers are having fun steering it instead.
