Target Transformation! A fun Christmas crafting project!

I'm not ready to pull out the Christmas bins yet (Halloween wears me out) but in case you happen to be interested in future Christmas crafting projects, Target is selling these reproduction putz houses for $3.
 The colors are a bit "bright" so I decided to tone it down. I removed the pipe cleaners and replaced them with my own. I also brushed the entire house with white glue and dusted it with fine glitter.

 The decorating options are endless and this could even be a project that you do with your kiddos (minus the glue gun part).

 I haven't had time in weeks to do any crafting, so this gave me a much needed fix. Happy Christmas crafting!

What a super job you did toning down the brightness! This is really the time to begin those Christmas crafts. Probably a little past time.:-) xo Nellie

That looks great, Kim! I'd never guess that it wasn't vintage! I'm having a hard time not being tempted by all the cute Christmas that I'm already seeing out there. Since we will be moving right around Christmas, I have to skip decorating this year. We'll see how strong my will power is throughout the season!!

I saw these the other day at Target and thought they were so cute! I"ll have to pick up a couple for Maddie to flip.

Have a great weekend, Kim!

So cute -- love this! Target is a treasure trove (sometimes) in the $1 and $3 section. Have a fun weekend!

What an amazing difference...it hard to even see the original house. What you have done makes it so much cuter.

I saw those at Target and thought the same thing-a little too bright. Now I wish I had gotten a few. Such a great transformation, Kim. Back to Target!

Fabulous idea! But either you drove down here to Columbus and cleared all the Targets out of their little houses or my Target isn't as cool as yours! I haven't found a single house down here yet :( Still on the lookout though so I can copy your project.
