Home for Christmas

This is the sec­ond of three class­es I will be teach­ing at Cre­ative Cards and Crafts in Vil­la Park, IL ~ Oct.18th & 19th. In this Home for Christ­mas class I will show you how to cre­ate three old fash­ioned Putz style hous­es using pat­terned papers from the new Graphic45 12 Days of Christ­mas line. Once all three hous­es are built and accent­ed with Stick­les and glit­ter you will group them on a dec­o­ra­tive acrylic plat­ter cov­ered with faux snow and sisal trees to com­plete a minia­ture win­ter themed neigh­bor­hood.

As a bonus I will show you how easy it is to bleach sisal trees at home if you wish for yours to be off white in col­or. And a vin­tage Christ­mas project would not be com­plete with­out includ­ing a few vin­tage mer­cury glass orna­ments. I will show you how easy it is to turn these orna­ments into pho­to hold­ers to dis­play a few of your favorite hol­i­day pho­tos.

Please Note: The vin­tage mer­cury glass orna­ments will vary in shape, size and col­or. If you wish to per­son­al­ize your Home for Christ­mas project feel free to bring small minia­ture items you may have to adorn your Home for Christ­mas neigh­bor­hood as well as any small beads to accent your trees if you so wish.

Sup­plies Need­ed: Strong Liq­uid Adhe­sive, Plat­inum Stick­les, Pen­cil

Tools Need­ed: Scis­sors, Scal­lop Scis­sors

Option­al Items: Vin­tage Pho­to Dis­tress Ink (If you wish to dis­tress the edges of your hous­es)

See you there.
