Santa’s Workshop Storage Box!

Hello friends, today I’m sharing my Santa’s Workshop Storage Box!

I’ve had this on my list since I made the Shed Shed & Bird Box.

I’m so pleased with how it turned out and I think it looks really cute!

The main structure is very straight forward and pretty quick to make, as always it’s the decoration and deciding what papers you want to use, which takes the time.

I love all the little details, the ‘North Pole’ sign, baubles on the trees, hanging lights and flowers under the window.

I went mad on the snow, I wanted it to be covered, so I painted the scalloped tiles white and then covered it in glue and dumped a load of the artificial snow over the top.

The raindeers are very cute, I added Nuvo Drops to make the noses more prominent.

I waiting for my order of mini Christmas presents to arrive. Once I have them I will update the photos and add in the link to the ones I used.

The little pile of logs is very cute too!
