Christmas glitter houses

I had planned on spending the day cleaning but I’ve been dying to get crafty so I put the vacuum cleaner away and got out the cardboard houses I had purchased from Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago.

I’ve been eyeing Christmas glitter houses for quite some time. I had originally planned on constructing mine from scratch but because I was afraid I’d never get them made before Christmas I decided to purchase the pre-made type. I’ve been collecting glitter, small trees and embellishments for these houses so I was all ready to get started.

I got out my paint and started to prime…

2013-11-24The small trees and wreaths were dark green so I put them in a bath of bleach and in no time they were white!

I then painted the houses in pastel colors and added some glitter…

I added snow flakes to the bases (my kitchen is now completely covered in the stuff!).

2013-11-242I added some embellishments to the roofs, glued parchment paper to the insides of the windows, added fences (which I made out of foam core and hot glue) and placed the wreaths, trees and deer…then added some lights and voila!
