Pootles Advent Countdown #13 Frosty House Decoration Tutorial
Yay! We’re back to another Advent Countdown project and this time, it’s a decoration!
There is a fabulous garden centre near me that people travel far and wide to each year at this time to get their Christmas Decorations. (Jackson’s in Trelawnyd for those nearish to me!). But while it’s amazing, and I’m very fortunate to live near here, they have the most weird and wonderful decorations sourced from goodness only knows where so it’s a case of having to buy when you see or you’ll never get it!
I did a spot of shopping there recently and have decided that our decorations in the lounge this year are going to be a woodland theme but once I got the decorations home, I loved them so much I wanted to see if I could create a cardstock version.
It’s not an identical decoration, but you can certainly see my inspiration and I’m sure it will look gorgeous in amongst the others that I shall have scattered around the room!
The little box when finished measures 2x2x2″ (5x5x5cm) and no, it’s not designed to be opened, it’s designed as a decoration!
Enjoy the video, you’ll see some very inky fingers!
