Love grows best in little houses, with fewer walls to separate. Where you eat and sleep so close together, you can't help but communicate. And if we had more room between us, think of all we'd miss. Love grows best in houses just like this.
- Doug Stone
This quote is actually lyrics from a song. The words are so warm and they paint such a happy picture in my mind. I just love the idea of love growing big in a tiny house! I wanted to capture the same sentiment with these little handmade ornaments.
- cardboard scraps
- assorted collage scraps
- acrylic paint + brushes
- hot glue gun or white glue (it just takes longer to set and dry)
- thin gold rope for hanging
1. Mix colors and paint cardboard.
2. Cut shapes for roofs, doors, windows, and houses frames.
3. Assemble by gluing the roofs, doors, and windows onto the houses with a hot glue gun.
4. Cut gold thread to the desired length and glue to the back of your ornament, sandwiched between the house and an additional piece of cardboard.
These little houses were really fun to make! I think they would make a sweet handmade gift. They are not overtly holiday so they are the kind of thing that you could keep out all year round. How sweet would a row of these little houses look framed in a picture box, or peeking out from a window frame?
