Little houses

I love to make little things to hang around my home and make it pretty and I have missed playing with wood and wire recently and wanted a quick project to make so I revisited something I made a little while ago but this time using the Tumbleweed Houses stamp set by Susan K. Weckesser.
I started by piercing some holes through my little piece of wood using an awl and threading the wire through. I then simply stamped and coloured the houses using Derwent water colour pencils and glued in place by leaving a little tab on the bottom of the houses when cutting. I think they are super cute houses with glittery roofs and shiny little windows. They can be found here at Unity.
Hope you are having a lovely day and keeping warm and dry. Sam xxx
