I finished all the details on the Easter house. I am really happy with it. I always have some criticisms I’m my mind on what I didn’t do right and what to do better next time, but overall I think the effect is very nice. And I feel confident that my friend’s child will be thrilled with it.
Here is the front view of the house. I’ve add a picket fence from a LaLa Land die. I glued 3-4 layers of cardboard together, painted it with gesso and then Martha Stewart mother of pearl paint which gives it a nice sheen. I think the paint is protective as well as this fence feels really sturdy.
The eggs are just polymer clay rolled into an egg shape. I used primary colors mixed with equal parts of white to make them more pastel. Except to make the pink eggs, I used about 1:4 ratio of red:white. Once they were glued down, I coated them with a thin layer of sculpey glaze to give them some sheen. The grass is a Martha Stewart icicle punch that is still available on Amazon at the time of this writing.
The leaves on the roof are also a Martha Stewart punch that is retired. You can easily find other leaf punches though. I’m going to try oak leaves next time to see how that looks.
I glued a little birdie I got from Hobby Lobby on the top just to add a little decor there.
Here are a couple of photos of the bunny portraits inside the house. I didn’t really paint inside very well because it doesn’t show up for the most part.
You can see the tape on the back of the door in this view below. I painted over it (sloppily I’m afraid). I didn’t do the windows very well on this house, but I know what to do next time so they’ll look better.
All of the bunnies are clip art from a digital sheet I got from Alpha Stamps and resized a little bit to fit the house.
This was a relatively quick house to make and very funny. I’ve got 3 more to do.
Take care everybody and thank you for reading.
