Suggested supply list:
- Old Music papers and assorted scrapbook papers
- Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paint in Dash of Red, Landscape Green
- Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi Medium (matte or gloss)
- Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paint brushes
- Claudine Hellmuth Studio Sticky Back Canvas
- Ranger Inkssentials White Pen
- A back pen (I like the Faber Castell PITT in size S)
- a BATTERY operated tea light candle (no flames please!!!)
- Template for the houses - I made one for you! Download here!
STEP ONE: Put the house template (download here) on top of a sheet of old music paper and trace around it with a pencil and then cut it out.
STEP TWO: Draw in where you would like the windows and doors to go.
STEP THREE: Paint in the house. Paint around all the doors and windows leaving them unpainted. Here I am using Dash of Red from the Claudine Hellmuth Studio Line. If you are using these paints, you will notice that they remain transparent and you can still see the music notes even through the color, making a really beautiful effect!
STEP FOUR: Here I added details. I used Claudine Hellmuth Studio Sticky Back Canvas to make the curtains, a black pen and the Ranger Inkssentials White Pen.
STEP FIVE: Fold all your edges and then glue the tab to the other side of the house with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi Medium.
STEP SIX: Pinch the sides to shape the house.
STEP SEVEN: Place the roof template on a piece of scrapbook paper, trace around and cut out
STEP EIGHT: Fold down the center and then add details. Here I added trim but cutting a piece of Sticky Back Canvas
STEP NINE: Put the roof on your house and then place a BATTERY OPERATED tea light candle underneath. DO NOT use a regular tea light candle with flame because it will catch your mini house on fire! You can find Battery tea light candles at home stores like Bed Bath and Beyond, or at your local craft store.
YOU'RE DONE! Here's the little house ready to bring Christmas cheer! It was difficult to capture just how glowing the houses are with the battery tea lights underneath. When you make yours, you will see how magical they are!
Now make a whole bunch more and display them on your mantle! A perfect Holiday Village for your home!

How are you and your husband holding up with all this frigid weather we are having. We froze at the Ravens/Redskins game Sunday night.
Thank you, and happy holidays.
I've had just as good success as far as longevity as with the more expensive ones.
Great project, thanks!
I am TRULY liking this project so far. I started last night after work and I could have gone on without sleep if I didn't have to work today (HA!)
Anyway, I still don't have your Studio Line (currently saving up so I can buy all at the same time), but no matter, I used my acrylic paints and luckily found some misc. papers with music bars on them. So photocopied them and went at it.
What I like about this project is it's not finicky where I have to fuss constantly to make it turn out perfectly. They're fun and whimsical and that's what I love about these cute houses. Thanks for the brilliant idea and step-by-step. I'll be at it again tonight-Yay!--I'm like a kid again!
I'm getting married in the desert of West Texas in a Ghost Town called Terlingua (just outside of Big Bend National Park). The church is right out of the movie "Kill Bill" (okay, so you have to have seen the movie to not think that's macabre!)...very rustic and simple. No electricity so gettin' hitched by candlelight, with a procession lit by luminarias to the reception hall down the hill.
...Now my wheels are spinning about all the cool handmade things I can do to make the centerpiece cool! Thanks for the inspiration, Claudine :)
Thanks extra much for the downloadable pattern!
thank you for providing a cute and fun tutorial and for giving me the opportunity to feel like i actually accomplished something today.
