Fall, the season which normally incites such pleasure for me, has failed to inspire me this year. Apart from a few measly pine cones and mini pumpkins, I have done zero autumnal decorating - all of last year's adornments are still tucked in our attic.
Christmas is a different story - I am eagerly awaiting the appropriate time to begin decorating for December 25th. The great thing about crafting, is that I can create a few Holiday items while I bide my time.
I love this Christmas village from Pottery Barn Kids; but spending nearly $40 on a cardboard house is a little ridiculous.
Hobby Lobby to the rescue!
Yesterday I found this unfinished paper-mache house for just over $4 (after 30% off). I'm not sure if you can tell, but this is a nice size (over a foot tall), and has a removable roof. I plan on using the 12 windows as a countdown for Christmas - a shortened advent calendar if you will - and will tuck goodies for my girls inside the house.
I can't wait to get started embellishing!
I see glitter in my future.
