I love how the windows were created to look like they were made with sticks....
I think the moss really makes the entire piece come to life.
Initially, I was going to create little bricks to hand set in place inside this little house--- but then I had an "ah-ha" moment when I was wondering what to do with a bag of glass seed beads I had recently bought for mere pennies--- use it for a flooring in the little house! I coated the floor with Modge Podge and poured in handfuls of beads and swirled it around until the floor was covered. Once the glued on beads had dried, I coated some Modge Podge over the top of the beads to help set them in place. So sparkly! I love it!
Once the house was painted inside and out and the floor was finished, I used E6000 glue to adhere the miniature house onto a thick substantial candlestick. Now it's coming together!
I had plans to fully load up this little house with all kinds of miniature goodies..... I have a lot of miniature stuff!!! Most of these items shown below would be fabulous in a little country store.....
Miniature Christmas stuff?
I've got that too....
But alas, everything just seemed to big for this little house! Skunked again! For now I just have a little stool turned into a table with a few small mini's inside the tiny house.
I am thinking of furnishing the little house with handmade items that I can control the scale on. Also, adding little things like a thimble for a seat, a little tin box for a bed... etc. That would be super cute!
It is going to be fun to try different things inside this little house to get it furnished. Fun times, fun times~
Now, I'm on the lookout for a miniature store front and a little house I can make into Santa's workshop!
