Christmas Home Decor

Christmas is getting closer, before we know it, it will be here.

So, with that in mind and using  inspiration from my previous birdhouse post I decided on another home decor project this time with a Christmas twist.

Using the  "finn" birdhouse back as a template I cut a base from mount board.
The roof was created from small wooden sticks, the kind you use to stir your coffee in coffee shops.
The sticks were stuck to the top edges  to simulate a roof, torn corrugated card added  texture to the project. The whole thing was painted in Teal Paperartsy Paint and dry brushed with Chalk paint.
Treasure gold was added to the roof edges in onyxite and white fire, a small amount was added to the edges of the house too.  A small circle frame was also painted  to match and layered onto a  solid circle to create a bird house door.

 A few flowers were layered  together, twine, wire, lace etc. A wall stamp was stamped onto the flat background and a christmas sentiment stamped on dark brown card then embossed with shabby blue embossing powder, followed by adding white gesso which was put on the
edges of the  flowers, leaves roof edges etc, along with a tad of glitter, just to bling it up. 

Hope you like my little project.
