Green Glitter House

Green Glitter House by sugarplumpatchwork.com

My green glitter house is complete. I had to rework a few things, and then it was time for a base, a fence and - you guessed it - glitter! Making the porch and porch posts was a fun challenge. I opted for blue windows for this one. I thought the typical yellow windows I usually use would blend too much with the lime green trim on this little house.

I think I like the blue - they still glow yellow when the lights are in though. The warm color of the yellow lights overpowers the blue acetate. But that's OK - it will match the rest of the village from last year.

This house is inspired by a real house. You can see a pic of it in this post.  And an "in progress" pic here.

It started with these basic pieces plus the porch posts - which are also made from cardboard. I created the porch roof section as a separate three dimensional piece and glued it in place.

I know ya'll probably aren't really thinking about Christmas at this time of year, but these little houses are just so compelling to make and I find I need to plan/work ahead to have them all ready in time.  ;)
