Christmas Window Display

[insert_php] previous_post('« « %', 'Older Post', ''); [/insert_php] | [insert_php] next_post('% » »', 'Newer Post', ''); [/insert_php]   I'm totally running out of time to do all the Christmas crafts I wanted to do for my SF town, but here is something I just had to do! This building is a repainted Applewood Department store I obtained used.  While painting the walls, somehow I ruined the windows with my masking tape! (???) It was so weird, my tape melted the…

animal figurines

[insert_php] previous_post('« « %', 'Older Post', ''); [/insert_php] | [insert_php] next_post('% » »', 'Newer Post', ''); [/insert_php]   I think this craft will remind you of the dinosaurs for the boys room I did a while ago.  It's basically the same thing, it's just for Christmas this time.

For the texture, towels happen to be perfect for the miniature rugs.  Here is how I used them. I don't know about other countries, but here in the US, seasonal items are typically 50% off…

Snowy Scene

[insert_php] previous_post('« « %', 'Older Post', ''); [/insert_php] | [insert_php] next_post('% » »', 'Newer Post', ''); [/insert_php]   Hello! It took a little long, but here I am, posting about the snowy scene today. There are different types of materials you can use to imitate snow in your diorama, but after a bit of experimentation I did with my son, I came to conclude that for Sylvanian dioramas, baking soda works great.  It is dirt cheap, and washes right off…
