Blue Glitter House

Blue Glitter House
I was inspired to create a blue glitter house after seeing a few around the internet. I thought the blue shade would look so frosty and cool under the glitter.  I love making my own patterns so I sat down with the graph paper and eventually ended up with this.

But before I get to the pretty, finished house it has to go through this stage below - drawing and drafting and redrawing and redrafting. And measuring and thinking and cutting and folding and testing and back to drawing and drafting again!


Then it's time to glue and prime and paint and glue and glitter . . .

But all in all it's a fun undertaking with lots of steps and techniques involved. I like the variety of tasks in the process.


And once it was all finished this little guy showed up to stand guard outside the new house.  ;)

I hope you are having a great week with some time for creativity.

  2. This is a great glitter house beautifully proportioned - perfect for the nutcracker soldier. I love the blue color with your glitter. Do you mix colors together in your glitter?

  6. These houses are precious!! Love it. I'm not normally a fan of nutcrackers but I love this guy...he is perfect and enhances the house perfectly!! Would be so nice to see your houses licensed
    with lights inside... I'd want a few for sure!! I love them sooo much! I should take a photo of the lit up attached house decoration I have had since the 70's. It's a favourite of mine. My daughter loves it too!

  7. Hi Laney. I like this new blue one. Did you get my "thank you" message for the beautiful pink and aqua house I bought from your Etsy site? It is so pretty, and arrived safely.
