Winter houses

I saw a picture on the internet with an altered winter house and thought!.......I can do that!
After a trip to the craft store, I created my own houses!
I added a battery operated tea light to make the "windows" glow:).
I found some "snow" in a bag and layered it on with watered down glue and a paintbrush.  The wreaths were part of a Christmas clearance.  I took off the red bows and added my own with pink beads.  The snowman was also in the clearance bin and I painted the bow pink and glued some pearls and "holly branches" to the hat.
After finishing this house, I decided to create two more!  :)
This is how they started.
I painted them inside and out with white paint.  I then put a second coat on with the pearlized color paint.  I couldn't find any snowmen so I painted some gold deer from the store with white paint and covered it with glitter.
Here are my finished projects.
The pink one I gave to my mother-in-law and the blue one I gave to my mom.
