|Title: I'll be Home for Christmas|
Altered Paper Mache House
Side one, this is a double sided hanger.
The other side has the Christmas carol "I'll be Home for Christmas" written by a soldier during world war 2.
The front is decorated with a window with the warm glow of the home fire. I have added the 2 flags to represent Canada and USA in honor of our soldiers fighting for our freedom far away from home.
The 2 red cardinals are nesting in the pines and I have decorated based on the carol, with snow, mistletoe and presents under the tree.
Side 2 I've added the poem here framed inside a frame with a red white and blue ribbon suitable for both countries. I found some flag images and distressed them for an aged look, added an assortment of birds to tie in with the front of the house, yellow ribbons to honor those we still wait to come home, and gold stars for our heros.
The house I painted with a red acrylic and then flecked with goldtone overtop. I removed the original hanger and instead made a copper wire hanger that sits more in the middle of the roof.(truth be known, my cat Noodle found the original hanger on the table and turned it into shreds but had a great time doing it.)
This design was made so that side 2 is against the wall when hung because of the dimension on the front. However, it is reasonably balanced and will sit on a table top. I personally would use a wide easel for display.
Finished piece measures approx 9" x 12" with the hanger
