How are you all? Hope you are fine. Are you all set for Christmas? I am looking forward to it like always. I love Christmas and I enjoy it especially with the kids and sharing the excitement of it all. There is so much to do and so much to prepare for. I also wanted to welcome two new followers to my blog; mfdez and Sylvie Vanden Berghe. Welcome!
Today I wanted to share with you my new Christmas Project. I have made a new Christmas Shadow Box display.
Finally I have found myself one of the Dolls House Emporium's Old Shadow Boxes and best of all the one in Mahogany. I always imagined this to be decorated with a Christmas Scene.
A few years ago I had decorated a Room Box with a Christmas Scene but for some reason it doesn't appeal to me like it used to and I believe that there is so much potential for the room box, that it looks wasted.
The pieces that I had used for the room box I decided to move them into the Shadow Box. There was no way I was going to used them for a Christmas project. I had gotten the lovely Resin pieces from DHE for free a few years ago and it was a pity if I didn't use them.
So the first thing I did was wall paper the walls and flooring. I have designed the pattern for the floor and printed it. On the walls I have added like a brick wall to add a little detail to the walls.
Once those were done I tried out the pieces that I wanted to add to make sure that everything will fit in the display.
At the ceiling of the shadow box I have also added embossed paper and added one single battery led light.
Once the pieces were all in place I started decorating the room with Christmas Decorations and accessories. And I was really happy to that most of the accessories used in the room box actually fitted in the shadow box. Also I was even happier to see the shadow box so full.
I enjoyed adding the little pieces and the decorations. It is fun to decorate a Christmas scene in Miniature. Now the Shadow Box is set in the Living Room and just in time for Christmas.
So I really hoped you have liked my new Christmas project. I already have some plans for now the empty Room box.
Before closing this post I wanted to remind you of our Christmas Advent Calendar. I hope you are all enjoying it. From what I can see so far it has reached over 2,000 views. Thank you all for your support and it is always a pleasure to see so many people interested.
Hopefully, as I am still working on the Queen Mary's bedroom Diorama, I am to start a new dolls house project.
Make sure to be good and don't forget to write Santa a letter. I have done one and my letter is pretty much the same as last year's. I am sure that you are not surprised!
So I guess this is all for today. Hope that you are all in the Christmas Spirit. Keep tuned for the next blog post.
Take Care and See You Soon.
