Gingerbread House

I'm baaaack! Christmas is so damned busy. I hardly have time to do anything at all between Christmas shopping, Christmas preparations, Crafting and looking after and 1 1/2 year old so that's my excuse for not blogging sooner and I'm sticking to it! :)

So I finally made a faux gingerbread house which I've been wanting to make for forever and a day. I made it using a small cardboard box, felt, sparkly pipecleaners and lots and lots of hot glue. I cut the windows out so that the battery operated LED lights inside can shine out through the windows and I must say, it does look very nice all lit up and it looks a whole lot better in person. I will get an "in-action" shot of it when I have it on at night at post. I plan to do a full tute on this when I get a chance because I had so much fun making it, I want to do another one!

Hope you like it.

Happy Crafting!


edit: In my haste to get this project up while my little munchkin is having a uber quick nap, I completely forgot to take a picture of one of the sides of the house, so will upload at next nap time.
