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.

Home for Christmas

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.
