Kids' Crafts - Holiday Houses

I love getting Han involved with the Christmas crafting that goes on around here. This weekend, she had a friend stay over and we worked on several things. This was the major project they worked on.
Han's house is on the left and bud's is on the right

Cute, right? I'd love to do one like a gingerbread house.

  • bird houses
  • crafts paints

Optional supplies:
  • dimensional holiday stickers
  • mini ornaments
  • glitter
  • glue gun
  • spray glue
  • pipe cleaners
  • pom poms
  • ric-rac
  • ribbon

I'd like to suggest Hobby Lobby for everything. I only say this because you can get everything you need there.  They have an awesome mini tree section and that's where we found the wreaths and peppermint balls.  I bought that stuff on Friday and it was 50% off. 

They did everything themselves.  I supervised over the hot glue.  (ug)

It's hard to see, but we sprinkled clear glitter on the roof as snow.  It looks great in person.

her bud's house

Han has a tree in her room and her ornaments are fuchsia, turquoise and bright green so she painted this mini house in those colors and embellished with some matching stickers and buttons.  I'm planning to have Charles add a screw-hook so that she can use this as an ornament.
