    I know it's past Christmas, but I saw this in a magazine and wanted to copy it, Sooooooo........I did this for the holidays.....



    The door got funny, but I liked how it came out for a first try! Now I'll have to put it outdoors for the critters to pick at.

    Quote:Thank you! I used a pizza box for the house form and taped it together then SUGAR glued the rest of the stuff on it. I actually used left over glass (from a stained glass project) for the tinted windows because I couldn't find amber cellophane. [​IMG] That's a cotton ball gently pulled up for the "smoke" in the chimney, sliced almonds for the "stonework" on chimney. The front door, which I had a little trouble with is made from sugar cookie dough.

    I would say all together it took me about 5 or 6 hours part time to put it together. It's still on my cupboard, I'm going to put it out tomorrow for the wild birds and squirrels. [​IMG]

    No I didn't nibble on it, I ate the other holiday crap that was around! [​IMG]

    I actually used left over glass

    Next time you need glass, melt sugar until it's clear and color it with food coloring, that is what I do. I love to do sugar art.
