I made this chunky house or shrine for the Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap. I used a pre-made birdhouse and demolished it hehe! Then I had my hubby help drill random holes in it for a mini string of Christmas lights. I made the pumpkins, the moon, and Zero out of ploy clay. The hill with Jack and Sally are cardboard.

Thanks for looking!

This is really cool!  I love the shot in the dark with the Christmas lights shining, it really shows off the silhouette of Jack and Sally on the hillside.  Nicely done.  Cheesy

    Wonderful job! And great that you were able to get hubby to help. Kind of a bonding thing, there! I rocked you for this one. I love all the mini houses shared, but I would have to say that this one is my favorite. Makes me want to make one for myself! Neat idea with "destroying" the birdhouse, too. I say that jokingly, because you certainly improved it!  Grin
