Scrap Wood DIY

I had so much fun making these little houses at Christmas...
I was sad to pack them away until next winter, so I made one I can keep out all year.

We always have scrap wood, so I drew off my little house on a 2x4 and my husband cut it for me. 
After I sanded, I painted it with the color, Fluff, from the Dixie Belle Paint Company.
 I added some bakers twine to the block using tacky glue...
 I cut triangles out of scrapbook paper and glued them under the twine...

 I used my Crisut Maker to design and cut a phrase using vinyl and added it to the house... 

 I cut pieces of veneer to create the doors and windows. I used a damp rag to wash color onto them, and used a tiny brush to add some detail.

 When a friend wanted to have a craft night for her birthday, I knew this would be the perfect project. I love all the different colors.

I have a few extra blocks and have an art project swirling around in my head that I'm excited to start. I'll be sharing that soon!
