Candy Cane House

Hi! I'm up on the Echo Park Paper blog today with a super fun candy cane house to decorate your house with this holiday season! I cannot help it. I think it is totally darling. I hope you enjoy it too and there are so many great embellishments in this collection that make decorating this house feel like decorating a gingerbread house!

Here are all the pieces cut out according to the cut file instructions - see! It’s not that bad! 

Next I worked on the front and went a little crazy with the snow effect… but I had fun! I put it on the bottom and under the windows.

Okay… and then I added some more to the edges of the roof… and as many other places as possible. :)

After that I realized that I wanted to work some of the washi tape in and add a little extra detail to the top of the house.

Time to embellish!!! On the adhesive chipboard sheet you will find these awesome 3-d snowflakes. They felt like gumdrops to me!

I also found this awesome polar bear (and the tree on the other side) on the adhesive chipboard sheet! How cute is he!?!

Just a view from the top. :)

Okay, maybe I got a little carried away with these GORGEOUS enamel dots but I think they totally made the “details” of the project. I felt like my candy cane house became a little swiss chalet!

And here it is all completed. My little girls are VERY excited about this candy cane house. And I love the way the red looks against the blue for contrast. Very frosty! :) I hope this inspires you to create a little home decor for your house this season. This would also make a really cute teachers’ gift!
