My new hobby!

Ok, so I was inspired by some creative, artistic utube videos and decided to give this a whirl. I am now making home made decorations for holidays and fantasy themed crafts. This is my first attempt, a fairy house for my niece's birthday next week. These crafts are basically made from trash! I used cardboard, foil, empty plastic bottles, old coat hangers and assembled it all with a hot glue gun, then coated the entire piece in home made paper clay, made from old egg cartons and glue! I then painted everything and I have to say, for a first attempt, I am pretty happy with it! This fairy house also lights up (with a flickering tea light inside) illuminating the windows. This took about 40 hours to make over the course of about 5 or 6 weeks. My next project won't be as big and with some experience now, should go much faster. My sister has requested an old Irish cottage, so that is next on the agenda. I also plan to make Halloween and Christmas decorations this way. Soooo enough rambling, here are the pictures!

Thanks for checking out my new hobby!

With a little imagination those could be bluebird houses. Of course you'd have to install a clean-out door.

They're really seriously cute. Too bad they won't stand up to the weather. I need bluebird houses for my lakeside mountain cabin near Harpers Ferry.

That is very nice. To know that it comes from trash is even wilder. I showed my bff as well and she is very impressed as well. Fantastic job especially for the first piece you have ever made. Keep me updated on the ones you make. huggss

Vivian you did a great job girl, and you definitely have a talent with great attention to detail. You could make a killing out of them at fairs and markets.
