Wee Upcycled Christmas House

I finally got this house squared away. I have had the pieces of it hanging out in my office for ages. I wasn't sure exactly if I was going with a Halloween theme or Christmas...

Here is what I started with & my original post on this piece. I used plaster to fill in the big country stars. I also added a clear (frosted with spray paint) glass plate to hold the fake snow. And even though the base was already gold, I used gold spray paint to soften it just a bit. The glass & metal upcycled candle stick are held together with epoxy.

I used a lot of gold, glitter glue, and some ink to get this house properly grunged up. Plus I added some fancy prima resins & a decorative metal piece in the front to help cover those stars up more..

I hot glued a couple of little trees behind the house to make it look realistic. Love them!

Currently I am talking myself out of adding vintage lace around the bottom of the plate...who knows. There is plenty of time before snow flies...

Happy Hump Day!


  1. I HOPE there's plenty of time before the snow flies....looks FABULOUS & magical & I'm sure whatever further lace decisions made will be the right ones!!! Clever, clever transformation :)

  2. Those prima resign pieces are amazing looking. Would never know it was Americana before. Your transformation took it from cute to fabulous. LOVE that you added trees behind.

  3. This looks wonderful! What a fabulously pretty house now! I love it!

  4. Goodness Gracious me what a stunning piece!!
