Hey guys and welcome to Irosestudios, today i am making a winter wonderland from bits and bobs Ive found lying around the house.
from polystyrene packaging I cut this in half to reveal a really cool landscape for my back drop.
I used a saw and a few small tools to roughen up the edges.
using a hot glue gun to make a frozen lake with icicles around it.
used cotton fluff this made a cute snow effect. I then wired fairy lights in the caves and snow.
adding animals, santas and some pine cones and orange slices.
I used little bits of greenery i found and wood slices for pathways.
it may not be pintrest perfect but we love it!
I enjoyed making this winter wonderland as a cheap and easy diy that only took a few hours to put together and even better knowing i used something destined for the dump or landfill!

Let me know what you guys think!

Hello, sorry for such a long wait on a reply.

Thank you for letting me know.
Thanks for sharing. I was a bit worried though. At art school I cut polystyrene and got the dust on my lungs. Be careful with that stuff.
Yes, you are absolutely right, I wore a mask the whole time but I had a reaction on my skin where the dust had touched. I don’t think I’d do it again. Thank you so much for watching.

Oh that’s a relief! Oh wow your skin too. Nasty stuff. Great to be creative.
Reminds me a lot of when friends of mine took a scrapbooking class. In fact. often whenever I create digital art, I feel like I’m scrapbooking. But it shows what can be done with odds and ends that others might toss out. Many thanx for helping out our planet, Kay. Keep up your creativity.
Thank you, such a kind comment. My values stand on reusing as much as possible!
Feel free to follow along so you don’t miss out on upcoming projects!
I’d love to see some of your digital art.
