Village of Cuteness
Today I’m sharing with you the “village” we made at Convention for the +Fun classes they offered. Presenting my Village of Cuteness…
How stinkin’ adorable are these little houses!?!?! They’re made with 2×4’s! We first painted them with acrylic paint and then distressed them using the Distressing Essentials kit inks and the flat rubber stamp that comes in the kit. Ahhhh – I just love them! They are proudly displayed in our living room :).
A couple of things I want to point out… Check out the hinges on the Cherry Cobbler and More Mustard doors. They’re made with the Mini Library Clips! – and using Craft & Rubber Scissors, we clipped the ends off of them to make them look like hinges. Who thinks of these things??? Such a great idea. Also, the doors and the window box are made with our Wood Sheets and we used the direct-to-wood sheet method (same as the direct-to-paper method) and just applied ink directly to the wood sheets with ink pads.
