Milk Carton House

Bubble added to her Santa wishlist shortly after writing her letter (obviously just getting warmed up :-D) to include a toy icecream, a racing car and a toy door. Yes, that does say door. Poor Santa was a bit mystified by this request and asked if I could give him a bit of a hand with it, and this is the best I could come up with!

A small sized milk carton, taped closed at the top with masking tape and painted with a few layers of white and brown acrylic. I used a sharp paring knife to slice a door (the important bit!) and a few windows into the cardboard sides to create a little house. I was going to add details with a Sharpie and maybe some felt flowers or something, but decided to keep it simple. It is now nestled amongst the presents under the tree and will hopefully pass inspection as a 'toy door' come morning :-)
