House Shaped Advent Calendar with Dana
Hi Tando fans! Dana here today sharing my House Shaped Advent Calendar. I had a blast putting this project together. My daughters are having so much fun counting down the days until Christmas, especially when every drawer contains a special treat!
I started by covering the house with some cozy patterned papers. I used the Joined Snowflake Mask to add some textured stars to the snowy scene on the sides of the house.
I smoothed molding paste over just the centers of the snowflakes on the mask, which was the perfect design for the sky. I added Mini Snowflakes that I colored with acrylic paint and glitter glue.
To aid with opening, I attached small wooden plugs to the center of each drawer.
I wanted to embellish the roof with realistic looking "shingles" so I used a die to cut patterned paper to cover the roof. I added some "snow" to the top of my roof and covered it with a layer of glitter glue to give it the fantastic sparkle of fresh fallen snow.
Thanks for stopping by today!
