Holiday Sweets Hutch by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper

I love how Shannon reimagined the Kitchen Cabinet Kit into a market stall (she left off the cabinet doors on the top, and the piece looks like a whole different cabinet painted white).

Here’s some intro text from Shannon’s blog post (which is filled with tips & how-to photos on making tiny things):

I cooked up a sweet little Christmas Hutch and set it in a mini scene. It is sort of like a market stall, but using a smaller hutch instead. The cabinet is a Chrysnbon kit that I assembled and painted, but using a Wooden Hutch would save some construction time.

There’s a lot to look at, isn’t there? Haha! Every time I thought I was finished, I saw an empty spot that needed something… The shelves are crammed with glass bottles and jars filled with candies and jams. There is a bowl of lemon drops near a chicken dish, a cookie sheet of gingerbread men, heart shaped sugar cookies, chocolate sandwich cookies, and a classic Yule Log. The ornaments near the gingerbread sleigh are actually glass globes that are filled with microbeads.

My intentions were to hang them on the garland but then I got the cutest cookie cutters on the planet! I fashioned little hooks from wire, glued a snippet of sewing thread in a loop on the back of the cookie cutter, then hung them from the hook. They are my favorite part of the entire project.

The hutch has a slide-y out-y bit (is it a prep area? A kneading board? I have no idea) that I used as a gift wrapping station. The flour bin holds all the gift wrap and ribbon, so it is all nice and tidy.

The dainty pot is kind of a fave, too. (See bottom left of the photo, with the lollipops in it.) It started out terra cotta colored but with a little paint and glitter, it fit nicely between the pudding and the lollies. There is a wider pot in that set also, and I painted it the same way and filled it with gingerbread hearts (to the left and behind the lollipops). Most of the cakes and candies I made from polymer clay, but the round suckers are made from hot glue and colored with Sharpies.

So clever! Thanks, Shannon!
