Happy Holidays Festive House
(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities 2013 Blog Event)
Another cute decoration that was fun to alter!
Happy Holidays Festive House:
I love this so much that I’m going to make a few for gifts, as well as keeping this one for myself!
You can see the layers quite well, but here’s what I did in case you’d like more details…
Step 1: Start with a blank house. Mine was a flat wooden birdhouse ornament I picket up in the sales somewhere, it measures approx 5 x 7″. I haven’t been able to find them online, but I think THESE ONES from Tando Creative would look just as cute, they are a bit smaller but that would be okay!
Step 2: Give it a coat of white acrylic paint all over, or two coats of white Gesso:
Step 3: Paint the roof with a mint-blue acrylic paint. Mix some of the same paint with some modelling paste, and use a polka-dot stencil to scrape it onto the bottom of the house:
Step 4: Hot-glue some beaded trim around the edge of the roof. Heat emboss two stamped stars with gold glitter embossing powder:
Then just add a couple of chipboard pieces (mine are from My Mind’s Eye 12 Days Of Christmas), a wood veneer, and a couple of gems on top! Hang it somewhere to look pretty!
Create/decorate a festive house – on its own or as an embellishment for a page or card
Add a bit of beaded trim
Try a bit of stencilling on your next project
See you soon, Jennifer x
