Little Houses 3-Piece Wall Art

Whimsical little houses. They're everywhere lately and I love them. I made this wall art using various patterned paper from my stash. I just love little stash-busting projects like this. The "canvases" are just 8x8" pieces of quarter-inch plywood that we had leftover in the garage from building Peanut's birdcage.

I made these for OGD and they're heavily inspired by these that she pinned and wished for.


Also, a little gem from Pinterest: the hanging hardware pieces are the pull-tabs off of the top of cans of tomato soup. I used E6000 to attach them to the backs of the pictures,and they work like magic. Cheap and easy.

I hope everybody had a great weekend :) I went to Corpus Christi (my little nieces call it "Corbis Crispy") and we had fun digging up teeny beautiful clams and bigger squishier, cooler snails. And a tiny shrimp and a tiny fish.

I agree with Olivia - these are adorable and something that I want to remember for a future idea. Is it okay that I "pinned" a picture to my boards on Pinterest? Have a great vacay!
