TOAD HOUSE

This is for my fairy/whimsy garden and based on an origina project by Valerie E. at Cut Out and Keep. http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/toad_houses Items used:
  • Small plastic container
  • Craft Scissors or Xacto knife.
  • Small decorative stones
  • Old potpourri
  • Popsicle stick
  • Black marker
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Clear acrylic spray paint

I used an old medium sized sour cream container as the base. I turned it upside down and cut out a doorway with a pair of craft scissors.

I next glued on the decorative stones and potpourri with a hot glue gun and glued them to the sides and the top of the container.

For the sign, I used popsicle stick and black marker and wrote "Toad House" on it and glued it to the top.

It the sprayed the "house" with clear acrylic spray paint and allowed it to dry, then applied a second coat to help hold the items on and help protect it from the elements.
