Hello dear readers,
While still enclosed at home, I started playing around with the craft materials Birgit gifted me. First I made the tree for Birgit's little house then I made another one from the Rosmarin twigs in stock. This time I decided the tree to have a house on top with a ladder to climb up. I had some laser cut house embellishments, that I turned into little wooden houses with the use of Birgit's popsicle sticks. It was so easy to make that I want to share how it's done for any of you who want to make one for the garden around a country-styled dollhouse.
Materials - Easy to find
The little house embellishments are very cheap laser-cut slices. I got them from Aliexpress, 18 pieces, 3x6 different house shapes for about 4.00 US$, including shipment delivered to my home post box.
The foliage foam is one of Birgit's gifts. It saved me a lot of work. Before, I used to make the foliage myself by tearing teeny-tiny bits of pre-dyed thin sheets of foam which served quite well.
I cannot decide which house looks better on the platform ( made from the white craft stick. This house slice was blank. I glued on a door and a window, cut from both ends of a coffee steerer.
Also, I haven't made up my mind regarding the color of the treehouse. Maybe, I'll just stain it to make it look more weathered.
I hope someone finds this tutorial useful.
Today I received my second shot of inoculation - Hurray! I'll have to wait a week before I can meet my family without wearing a mask. But, according to regulations we all have to wear masks outdoors.
I wish you a nice weekend with lots of blessings.
