So for the Harry Potter Holiday swap I decided to make my partner  the fabulous Spikefan a Mini Honeydukes sweets shop.  I used a ceramic dollar tree house to start with and lots of honeydukes images and combined them.  I added polymer clay to the ceramic house to form a new facade.

I added clay for the door, the store front window, the windows on the roof and all the snow. Then I went back in and painted a chocolate frog display and a beartie bots beans display in the other window.  A long with a matching the brick color to the images.
I'm really pleased with house and I can't wait to make more.  C&C welcome

Love this! It turned out super cute. Did you add the polymer and then bake the whole thing?

All we have to decide is what to craft with the time that is given to us.

I love this idea! Never thought about using a crap dollar ceramic house as a base before. My world will never be the same... Grin
