Thanks to Lovesclutter for the pattern... I was inspired to make these 3 shacks.They are on poster  board, painted with markers and watercolors. The doors and windows are on the front only. I clipped the edges of the roofs, and used a piece of toothpicks for the chimney. The other items are just other little props I made.Gold Bags, a fire, some tools. Thanks Lovesclutter!  Wink K

Those are adorable!   And the extra props are awesome -- the fire looks toasty warm.  Cheesy

Thank You So Much! I never made anything this tiny before, except earrings! The tools were made out of posterboard and twigs, from unprocessed Oregano. I had to keep the cake food-hygenic. The other pieces are : Gold Bags... little circles with popcorn kernels inside, tied with embroidery thread. Fire: WASHED pebbles from the bag in the gardening stuff, more Oregano twigs, glued to sandpaper, with vinyl pieces for flames, and a bottom covering of laminating film, also for sanitary purposes. I gave a couple of these items away, and kept most.
Thanks for looking! K

  Thank You so much! The roof edges were just clipped, and I used a lot water-down paint to curl them up. I never made anything like it before!
The details were sharpie markers and watercolor paint. The chimneys were
just square kitchen matchsticks!
 It's great to see them appreciated!
