Tea in the Craft Room #3 - Glitter Houses




Welcome!
Find a seat  and let me pour you a cup of tea. 

 We are using a pair of vintage Avon teacups.
Blue Blossoms.

 How pretty are these with their fluted edges and iridescent sheen?
                                       (I think the bluebirds are hoping for a speck of cake)

Today I want to share with you the glitter houses I have been making.
 The unfinished houses were purchased last year (on clearance) at Hobby Lobby.
 I purchased a set this year, on line, at half price, about 7.50.
With shipping the total cost for the 3 unfinished paper mache houses was about 15.00 USD.
I used 2 coats of acrylic paint, craft glue and ALOT of glitter!










Below is a Glitter House I made from a Fancy Feast box. You can find the How-To and a template for the dormer here.

Thank you for joining me for tea in the craft room.

  1. Good morning Susan,
    Your wee sparkly houses are really cute! I haven't started any crafting yet but I will have to soon. Very pretty teacup too.

    I have changed my Christmas Pudding background. As much as I loved it, it was too hard to read with all the snowflakes which I found rather distracting. Yours is really pretty. Thank you for sharing and enjoy your day.

    Autumn blessings,
    Sandi

  2. Oh, they are just beautiful! Wise idea to start with the unfinished houses, though I see that you did make one from a box also. I have been saving boxes for years with the idea of making some of these. Wish life would slow down so I can find the time.

    I am off to visit your Pinterest board! Thanks for sharing your lovely work and pretty houses and accessories!

  4. Susan!! OMG!! Those houses are so pretty!! I Love them. I will be posting a few "Houses" I crafted tomorrow.I do have a few small paper mache houses that i bought years ago and a larger on that the roof is actually the lid on a box. I want to get the whole house decorated first and then I will have more time to "play" in my Craft Room with some Christmas crafts.....

  14. I have been eyeing those glitter houses in the stores lately but have resisted buying one because I have no room for it. Never thought to make one. Yours are prettier than the ones I've seen!
