Happy What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday and Happy Christmas Eve!

I have no desk to show you today, as all that is on it are some scraps of wrapping paper, scissors and bits of tape.

But many of you asked to see the Garden Fairy House project of mine that was published in the January issue of Polymer Cafe. So here you go.

Click on any of the pics for a closer look.

Here are several photos that didn’t make it into the magazine.

The base was built on a votive candle holder, so that gives you an idea of the size.

I used real leaves to give the texture on the roof.

And I still haven’t gotten mine into the garden. Next spring, for sure. 🙂

If you’d like to learn how to make this (and other things) be sure to check out the January/February 2015 issue of Polymer Cafe. 

*************Update October 26, 2017****************

If you aren’t able to get a back issue of the magazine, this tutorial is now available as a downloadable PDF on Etsy.

Happy creating and Merry Christmas!
