I made this Christmas market stall this week as a donation for the local Hobby Center's Christmas fair. I 'd like to share some tips about how I made this.
I started with this kit from the dollar store, It is basically a MDF kit with decoupage paper to decorate it with. I chose not to use the paper for my stall.
So this is what I started with.
Painted the inside white so it would not be too dark inside .
I did not add the base yet for it would be easier to get into the shop through the bottom to fill it up. I added the shelves and filled them with snowmen and Santa's. Some bought, some that I made myself and some gifts etc.
The snow is powered snow from a bag, glued on the roof and base. The icicles are made from a clear plastic fork. You cut off the tips of the prongs and glue them to the roof. Then apply some clear glue to make them look a little bit irregular like the real thing and you can add some micro glitter as well.
Here it is with everything in place. The base was not included in the kit .But I felt it added a little something.
Hope it will sell at a good price today.
