Beach Huts


I love to try different ideas for things to sell on my craft stall and recently bought some wooden hearts from a supplier I hadn't used before, MDF Craft Supplies. I was very impressed with their product, prices, free delivery and service and when I saw the wooden beach huts for sale I decided to get some to decorate. I wanted to make them lok just like beach huts so of course I had to use striped papers. The papers are an assortment from my Christmas odds and ends. I sand the edges lightly and use Distress Ink.cut the doors from card and on the first one I sanded the Core'dinations. I added tiny buttons for door handles and used theMemory Box bunting die with paper scraps.

I raided my scrapbook stash and added the name and chair from some Bo Bunny diecuts. I made the bucket and spade using Memory Box garden tool dies. I added string as I wanted to keep the rustic feel.


The balcony for this one was mad with a Memory Box garden fence die. I cut off the railings.


For the last one I used garden pot and plant dies. I cut the plant down to suit the size of the beach hut.

It just shows how versatile dies can be if you think outside the box a little.

What brilliant beach huts Marianne! They look so different with the your choice of papers, die cuts and embellishments. Thanks for telling us about the good service you got from the mdf company, I'll check them out as I'd like to dabble with mdf. Debra x

Marianne, they look absolutely incredible! It is always lovely to see what people create with our 'raw' product. They look a million miles away from how we sent them to you... http://www.mdfcraftsupplies.co.uk/wooden-beach-huts/mdf-beach-hut-01

These are absolutely brilliant and will sell like hot cakes I reckon! I love the bunting especially...I have a thing for bunting!

This is also rather timely as I was just researching places to buy MDF shapes so I can do some more decorated items and the supplier you used sounds fab so thanks for the recommendation and I shall check them out :-)

To answer your query about my home cinema, it is a dedicated cinema room with an enormous screen (somewhere just over 2 metres wide I think) and a big sofa. No noisy people, very comfy and I can have a cup of coffee half way through the film; utter bliss!

Big hugs, Kat xx
