Little Wooden Houses

A few weeks ago, I started making little wooden houses.  I made one and I just couldn't stop.

I used my own handpainted papers, some scrapbooking paper, acrylic paint, pens and little doo dads. I sealed them with polycrylic.   I bought a long board at Lowes.  They actually cut the board into 10 inch sections for me (no charge!).  Then, my husband cut the angles to make them "house-like". Since I had one taller piece, I made an apartment building.

A friend asked me if they could be put outside in a flower bed.  I suppose they could, but I'd probably suggest a couple more coats of sealer.

Right now, I have them lined up on my fireplace mantel, but I plan to list them for sale on Etsy.
