Hi.

Welcome to my blog/portfolio. Here I document many of my handmade pursuits. Hope you have a nice stay!

"Winter Wonderland" centrepiece.

"Winter Wonderland" centrepiece.

This was one of the last decorative pieces I made this season. It was a custom made Christmas gift for my Aunt and Uncle. 

I took inspiration from the "Winter Village" centrepiece I previously made and utilized a tree stump wedge to make a table centrepiece. I had this wedge laying around in my wood stash, waiting for its purpose. It was the perfect piece to use as the backdrop for this decoration.

I dry brushed the wedge in gray and white paint. I bent a couple of old white wire hangers to form the phrase "winter wonderland", which I then attached to the wedge.

To add visual interest and height, I added some faux snowy branches along the back of the wedge.

This piece would not be complete if I didn't put a rustic house on it, of course! The house is made from a reclaimed pallet block, natural tree bark, and the windows and door are cut from tea-stained paper.

Just like in the "Winter Village" centrepiece, I added a couple of pointy star ornaments. I just love these! They are modern and glam, but really compliment all the other rustic elements.

A couple of snow-covered trees and a beautiful white star positioned behind the house also add a little sparkle.
