There is a thread in the forum titled 'can you cut WOOD.' There are pictures and inspiration for you there. Also if you have questions you can ask there as well.
This will be a monthly swap for 12 months. Each month will have a color theme. The color of the month must be the BASE color of the house. Any other colors used (trim, roof line etc.)are senders choice. Any theme is senders choice. These houses can be decoupaged, beaded, painted, classy chic, somerset style, you name it. I have also seen them made into fishing shacks, restaurants and saloons. Let you imagination get the best of you.
The houses are cut from EITHER a pieces of 2 x 4 or 1x4. Not to be taller than 7". Please use different angle cuts at the roof area so everyone doesn't receive all perfectly cut roofs. (pics on thread)
I know I will be placing small hooks on the backs of mine when I receive them to hang on a wall in a row house type design.
PLEASE sand any rough edges to smooth. This will be a part of the rate you receive for the overall project. Most Home Depot's will cut these for you for a very minimal fee. .10 cents I think?
Sending late will not be tolerated since there is a 12 month time frame to do them in.
If this goes well, we will continue this swap but with themed houses next time~
Here are the monthly colors:
DECEMBER/ RED & GREEN OR PINK OR BABY BLUE
April-flowers (color any)
May-shades of LIGHT blue
June-shades of purple
PS/EDIT I also thought it would be a nice idea for everyone to sign the back of the houses, and put their info on it like an ATC. After all it is a peice of art and it would be nice to remember who it came from.
any roof angle cut is fine.
A Flickr group has been created for these WOODEN houses swaps to display your art work~ Info on the WOODEN houses thread in the forum.
