New Santa House *

Well it is time for another challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit and as always the theme is Anything Goes mixed media.  For this month I altered a Bird House, bought from a Pound shop.  Such tacky bargains in there and so alterable.  

Firstly I took it apart and painted the edges black.  I then covered it in Christmas paper, distresses on the edges and black soot wiped over.  I used a contrasting paper for the roof and base.  

I bought some robins and glittery Christmas tree decorations from the same shop.  I placed the robins head through the bottom window.  I painted the glittery tree cream and wiped black soot over it.  I draped an old pearl necklace round the tree for a garland.

To finish it all off I dabbed glue in random places and sprinkled flower soft for the effect of snow.  That's it all finished.

Now for the pics.

Thank you for dropping by and please call again real soon.  Why not head on over to RCS and join in with the fun challenge
