Winter Straw Cabin

     A little more recycling at Altered Eclectics this month, a little house decorated ready for Christmas.   
         Over the last few months I have spent many hours rolling paper straws, if you make a few each day it soon mounts up, now I have a small stash to play with.
      There are lots of amazing pictures on Pinterest that show you how to make wonderful things with paper straws, that's where I found this one.
      After I had made the house I painted the bottom brown and the roof white, a little glitter was added to the roof to make it sparkle.
     Another thing I have been collecting for a while are fir cones, so a quick rummage in the box and I found three small ones that I could stick on the house with hot glue. It really needed some colour so I found some felt holly leaves and glued a couple of those on aswell. All that remains is to add some twine to the back so the house can be hung up.
     If you like making altered art or recycling items then please come and show us at Altered Eclectics, we would love to see you work.
