For my project, I sought inspiration around the house. While looking around, I thought to myself, why not build a 2 inch scale model of the house. It was different. It was unlikely that someone else would do it. It could actually be neat. So, why not.

I present to you: Home Sweet Home

This is PinkyK's and my Real House from the Front


This is the Miniature House from the Front


Basically, I created a basswood structure resembling the house, then I used narrow strips of construction paper to create the effect of Siding and Shingles. I used waxed paper for the backing of the windows, in an attempt to make them look different from the rest of the house.

I really wanted to do the bricks and the steps. That would have looked cool. Unfortunately, that would have put me over the 2 Inch limit. Sigh!

Here are more pictures of the house and the construction process:

I hope everyone enjoys the house...

Oh my goodness!  Your itty bitty home is beautiful!

I'm glad I had to craft accessories for the full-sized version though!

What is scary about this is how much it REALLY looks like our house! Right down to the windows and vents on the roof!

I'm so lucky to have a crafty hubby!  Grin

You could decorate it like people decorate those ducks on their front porches... for every season/holiday.  LOL

We are fairly tame at Christmas. Just some lighted faux pine garland and bows and stuff.  Some day I want Santa and his sleigh pulled by a team of festive lawn flamingos instead of reindeer in our yard.  Until that time we are just sort of tame.

However, Halloween is another story!!! We draped the entire front porch and all of the bushes with spider webs complete with glow in the dark spiders, change out all of the porch lights with blacklights so the webs and spiders will glow, and play scary music!  It looked AWESOME!
