Whilst in Swindon doing my Christmas shopping, I went to The Works. This is by far my favourite craft and book shop because I always find something unexpected.
During this particular trip, I stumbled upon a wooden house to decorate. It was cute and supposed to be a fairy house. I, however, looked at it and thought it would make the most marvellous Christmas house decoration.
I purchased the piece and my mind whizzed with ideas for a design. I pencilled and painted the design the very next day, using traditional Christmas motifs, such as nutcrackers and bells.
I spent several hours on this, meticulously painting the minor details and am very happy with the outcome. I have also purchased a couple more houses online to experiment with some different designs. I hope you like what I have done!
