Find fixer-upper houses at the dollar store with good bones but bad paint jobs, and transform them by adding a little spray paint. You can choose spray paint in classic white, or go with a fashion color to match this year's decor. Since these are cheap, you can always repaint them if you get tired of their look.
- Cheap porcelain house
- Spray paint
- Acrylic paint, optional
- Glitter, optional
- Glue, optional
- If desired, prime each house with acrylic paint. This will help you cover all the little crevices that might be hard to cover with spray paint alone.
- Spray paint each house, making sure to get paint in all the crevices (like windows). Repeat if necessary.
- If you want some sparkle, brush some paint on desired areas (like roof), and sprinkle glitter on top. A clear chunky glitter will provide good snowy sparkle.
Alternatively, prime them with white paint and then let your little Picassos repaint them to their own liking with acrylic paint.
