This past summer we visited Atlantic Canada (stops in Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island). The downtown of St. John’s, Newfoundland is renowned for its colourful “jellybean row houses.”
The jellybean houses figure prominently in the work of local artists.
It was our first trip to Newfoundland and a very special time. I thought it would be a nice idea to add something to our Christmas tree as a memory for 2014. We used scrap 2X2 wood cut between 2-4 inches high and painted little jellybean houses with acrylic craft paint. Eye hooks were added for hanging. [We didn’t fuss too much about sanding the woodcuts because these were hanging and not playing.]
And here they are at night!
Happy Crafting and thanks for stopping by!
