Dollar Store Christmas Houses

by - November 24, 2014

I bought a few ceramic Christmas houses at the Dollar store a couple of weeks ago.  They had a lot to choose from, but I settled on these four.

Once I got them home, I immediately painted them white.  It took 3-4 coats of spray paint for each house.
Over the weekend, I finally got around to adding some German glass glitter to the tops using Mod Podge.
Easy peasy and more suited to my tastes!  I paired them with some mini bottle brush trees I found on Etsy last year.

For $4, I have some pretty new holiday decorations!

    We were thinking alike on this one.
