Whoville - Dusty Attic Design Team

 Good morning

Today I'm bringing you something a bit different, and something my lovely hubby helped me do. We had a day with lots of paints, Ryobi tools and hot glue gun.

We have turned this very cute 3D house that is new to the Dusty Attic website into a Whoville inspired house. DA3672 MDF House.

We started by doing a dry assembly (no glue used) to make sure that we knew what we were doing and were everything went. We added some little fairy lights to the inside to give the warm inside glow. Once happy we glued the core of the house down. 

While I started the painting process, my very very clever hubby used what would have been the scrap pieces to cut and carve out the snow for along the roof and window edges.

He also adapted the door a little so that it was more Whoville.

We have kept the colours very flat and cartoon like by using chalk based paints.

To add the glittery snow look we have used a Frosting Powder that I found in my stash which was applied by doing a base of pva based glue, applying the frosting powder then heating with a heat tool so that it bubbles and looks like snow.

We have also run some more little fairy lights around the outside edges for a bit more light and festive look.

I will also do a video on or around 1st December once it is set up with all of our other Christmas decorations and put into facebook group.

The MDF House can be found on the Dusty Attic website -

I hope that you have enjoyed looking at this as much as we did putting it together.

And thank you to Michael for all the help with this project - I definitely couldn't have done it without you this month.
