This week over at City Crafter Challenge Blog the theme is 'Home for the Holidays' where you are required to create an holiday home decor project or a project that includes a home. Lately, I've seen lots of creations on wooden cotton reels so wanted to create something similar.I've had three little wooden houses and cotton reels for months and have never got around to using them so when I saw this week's challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.
The base started out as a mint tin which I covered in gesso, I love that I can open the lid and keep special little trinkets inside. When dry I covered the top with red dotty paper, edging the tin with TH Tissue Tape and lace, then covered with chunky glitter.
I decorated the houses with vintage images, adding a MF frame, a rusty bell, buttons and a mini tag. I stamped the 'Christmas' from SU Pines & Poinsettieas, cut around the banner, attaching to the front of the tin.The cotton reel is covered using vintage music sheets, then I added a tulle bow.
Are you doing anything festive today ? Whatever you're up to, have a great Sunday !!!!!
