Christmas Houses Craft Stick Tree Decoration.

Another craft stick Christmas tree decoration today, as I am on a bit of a roll with them.

The laser cut wooden houses came from an assorted boxed set that I think I got from e-bay.  I stuck tiny scraps of yellow and red paper on the back of them, so that the windows and doors showed up as yellow and the hearts and flourishes red, a bit of a fiddle fart but I think worth it.

I have to be honest, I am not 100% about the holly, it goes, I know, but isn’t quite to my taste, so I have ordered some 6mm red buttons for the corners (and other projects) to see if they give the more homely, county-fied look I am after.

You have such simple but really effective ideas Helen! You should really put it all together in a book!! I'm sure Marc could help you! It's all fiddle fart by the crafty duo! Lol!

Big hugs

Super cute ornament! Would you like the holly any better if you turned it so that the leaves pointed inward, rather than outward? Just a thought...
