Hi to all, today I wanted to show something that I have been working on for awhile for Twiddleybitz in Australia. I had the little gingerbread house, and really wanted to change the whole concept from the Christmas theme. I decided on a Gypsy wagon, I thought this would be interesting and I also wanted it to be practical, and I could store some special little things in it.
So this is what I came up with. I firstly cut down the house base, and glued it together. I didn't add the roof on, as I needed to hinge it, so that it would open. This was a little tricky, but we got there in the end. (Yes had to get the husbands help for this). I then tiled the roof, I used the grab bag of squares, and carefully covered each piece. However I didn't like the look, and after spending all that time tiling the roof, I ended up adding a metallic top to it all, and pretty much covered up everything I did. But you can still see the layering effect the roof has. I addded the knob to the roof, so that I could open it up.
So this is my Gypsy wagon, from a Twiddletbitz Gingerbread house kit. I hope you have enjoyed this.
