I saw this lovely planter as I was going down the road today. The person had taken a regular spring rocking horse, painted brown and white and it looked real, and had dismantled it from its rocking assembly, the springs and such were off of it. Then a pair of reins went back to the box which the horse was "pulling" In the wooden box, which was just about as tall as the whole horse and bigger had flowers planted in it.


It was so adorable. I have seen donkeys and burros pulling carts but never a real looking stallion.

I bought an antique rocking horse, and would like ideas of how to decorate it for my grandson. It is dark wood.

Try restaining it if wooden.
Get some rope and tie around neck and make tail.
Also you could get some eyes in craft dept. and clue on.

Sand and stain if it needs it. Or, you could paint it like a carousel horse, or put a cowboy bandanna on it, or a superhero cape, or whatever he is into. You might let him help you dress it up to suit his taste.

You could dress it up for each season or each month like those geese you see outside, rain jackets, santa hat, bows for mane in different ribbons
