GNOME “GARDEN” ART AND GNOME DOORS

I started to decorate a small shelf, gnome garden inspired a few weeks ago, you can see the first additions to it HERE

I have added a couple more things to it, doors made from scraps of wood and faux water-colour art.

For the doors I made a pattern with a scrap piece of paper sized to my scrap piece of wood, once I cut them out I used a mixture of 2 parts isopropyl alcohol and 1 part red craft paint to “stain” them. I brushed the mixture on and after a minute I used a cloth to rub it off.

The hinges are the ends of a medium-sized popsicle stick with black paint dotted on with the end of a paint brush, hot glued on

The door handle is an old zipper pull hot glued on

The window is cut out of cereal box cardboard and painted white ( I painted a black square on the door behind the window before hot gluing it on.

 

The art work is displayed in frames meant for photo garlands, but I have included free print outs to fit inside 4×6 frames. ( if you have some photo garland paper frames just use them to cut the 4×6 down to fit) CLICK ON THE SNAIL BUTTERFLY & LADYBUG FOR THE PRINTOUTS

I made these by painting onto regular printer paper then scanning them and editing them into art work for my “garden”

My favourite is the lady bug as I love lady bugs, and it is my contribution to The Great Lady Bug Challenge
