My little wooden house


Wooden-house-decor

I love to look at little wooden houses in retail stores where they display cute little knick knacks [that I won't buy for myself but will squeal with delight when I get them as gifts...*winks*] so I was excited to find an "unadorned" one at Daiso. :)


The good folks at Xyron sent me a whole bunch of pretty coloured burlap from DCWV that was perfect for this project. I ran the 4 x 6 burlap pieces through the Xyron 5" Creative Station and cut them down to size to fit my wooden house. I also adhered the map patterned paper from DCWV to the back of the wood unit. :)


Them I added some crochet and paper blooms, a remnant piece of lace and some bling.


I kept the embellishments simple because I really wanted to maximize the storage space for each slot. Plus I was going to use 3M velcros to adhere the unit to the wall so it needed to be light too.


Here's how it looks with an Angry Pig thumbdrive. Cute, eh?

Playing along with the challenge at Let's Get Shabby.:)

*Edited* I was the challenge winner at Let's Get Shabby!

I always love those little houses, too, and like you...would never buy one for myself... How cool you were able to make your own! This is gorgeous! I LOVE the map paper you used. The colored burlap is really awesome, too. And I love the addition of the pretty blooms! And then of course you throw that pig in there and just make me laugh! ;)
