Halloween Village Dwellings - The Spiky Shingled House
For the Spiky Shingled house, I made a pumpkin tree. Since I needed more color for this house I made a bottle brush tree out of sisal rope. Then I used various distress inks to give it a dark color. And I made little tiny polymer clay pumpkins and glued them to the tree. Kind of silly, I know, but I think it looks cool. The pumpkin tree provides this very monochromatic house some much needed color. To make the Spiky Shingled House I just used the basic Sizzix Village Dwelling die.
Here is the Spiky Shingled House.
I scattered some pumpkins below the tree to look they have fallen off the tree, but I haven't glued them down yet. I may add an owl or a bat or another bird at some point. The roof is made from the off cuts of one of the set of shingles on the Village Rooftops die. I think it looks a little more menacing that the other dies.
Here the Sizzix Bird Branch shows up a little better as the porch support on this view.

Now for the Village Manor - I had the base and the basic Village dwelling house made weeks before the die arrived because I couldn't wait to make this little house. I made the base to look like a rocky outcropping.
