We made these a few years ago. The wreaths we redid this year, your not seeing double, Hubz and I worked together to assemble two similar wreaths, we removed the items we had used to make them a few years ago as they were starting to look worn, but the wreaths still in great condition.
The runners are 2×4 wood angled at both ends and painted grey with outdoor paint.
Ours are cut to 6.5 feet long
2 pieces of 1×4 wood are laid across the runners to form the width of the sled and screwed down into the 2×4 with inch and half screws.
These are cut to be as wide as 3 fence boards laid down beside each other with approximately half inch gaps between each.

The tops are made with 5 foot cedar fence boards rounded at the tops with a jig jaw but can be left straight.
Lay your fence boards down, positioning how you want your sled to look ( 3 boards were used on ours.
Please see photo HERE for placement
Place your runner frame on top of the boards and use 1 inch screws to screw from the inside to attach your fence boards.
The runners are visible at the top quite a bit but only peeking out at the back ( bottom) of the sled.
Flip over and add a hook to hang your wreath from.
