Wood Scrap Houses

 

Hi Friends,

I'm back in the garage this week.

I found more wood scraps that I need to deal with-

These scraps already LOOK like houses-

These pieces were already cut to size and what looks to be a perfect roof line!







Just a little sanding!




I did not need to do any cutting-

I just got out the chalk paint and starting painting.

I left the roof natural wood.



I used a black sharpie to make windows-



Yes, I wanted the houses to be primitive and chippy !



I found these bracket things on my husbands workbench-

I'm not sure what they are called but I thought it make a nice roof.

They were just hot glued in place, starting at base line and

overlapping upward to the peak.


I also found these old railroad nails.

They will make good chimneys and vents.














The wreath over the door was a scrap of old pipe cleaner.





The houses were done, so I looked around for some trees.


I moved them around -


looking for a good spot to take a picture-


Not sure where they will end up-





These are probably too heavy for ornaments, if I find smaller scraps

I would love to make some houses as gift tags.

Well, if you stayed until the end- WOW -and thank you!

Take care of yourself-

I am blessed and grateful to have you stop by-
