1. Paint the house and fence with brown crafts paint. Let dry.

2. Use sticky tack to temporaril­y adhere polymer clay candy, including the faux lollipops, to the house and fence until you like the placement; do halved pieces for trim.

3. Outline the “icing” designs with a chalk pen, erasing mistakes with a damp cotton swab. Remove the tack and secure each piece with hot glue. Go over the chalk lines with puffy fabric paint to resemble “icing” and let dry.

4. For the green wreath, stick two pieces of adhesive craft foam together to make a doubly thick piece. Trace a circle on top and cut with scallop scissors. Decorate with stick-on snowflakes and small circles of adhesive cut with a hole punch.
