Happy Bank Holiday Everyone & Welcome to my post today which focuses on the 'Potting Shed Card Holder', one of my samples for the recent 4DD. Isn't it a wonderful kit?
As you can see, I got a little bit carried away & added lots of extra bits & bobs! The shed is a basic box - 20cm x 15cm & 15cm high. I made the box lid in the usual way, but added a roof structure to the top. I also made a 'Wishing Well Pen Holder', complete with bucket.
I covered the inside of the box for that extra touch of authenticity, all ready for it's contents...
The appearance of the outside of the shed is created with lots of wooden lolly sticks in 2 different sizes. I also used them to construct a door & a window. Once I was happy with how it looked, I used some acrylic paint to decorate - just as you would a normal shed.
I added elements from the kit along with some die-cut foliage, modellers moss & flower pots, cinnamon sticks as logs & a handmade fork.
The gravel path is actually Buckwheat, applied & coated with a generous amount of Mod Podge, then the roofs of the shed & wishing well are adorned with some pretty bunting on string.
The base of the well is the container from a well-known brand of ear-buds! Again, covered in lolly sticks & lined with the gorgeous paper from the kit.
I then made some coordinating cards to pop inside the box...
This project would be a great gift for someone or a lovely little piece of useful home décor to keep for yourself. I got quite attached to it & miss it dearly.
Ah well, I might just have to make another!
So, until next time,
Happy Crafting & Take Care,
