Wow, this was a very long project that was both fun and totally frustrating at the same time! It also seemed like it would never end (kind of like this year I guess), but today it is finally finished! Here’s a picture of the Biltmore Conservatory located on the grounds of the Biltmore House estate in Asheville, NC (side note, that place is awesome! If you ever have a chance to go, you should!)
I really wanted to be abe to see inside, because I made Christmas trees with really cool silver bows using edible fabric, unfortunately, the trees ended up being too tall for the bows to show. Also the wreaths kind of block the view. Here’s sort of a close-up though.
This is incredible! Words fail to convey how in awe I am of this structure, and to think that last year you were just beginning your adventure with Glowforge. This is absolutely stunning. Now get some rest!
Wow @ElsieH - just wow.
The tree inside is perfect, and the fact that you thought to do that is what makes your stuff a step above! The crackle paint may be my favorite bit, it really takes it from gingerbread to building
Thank you! I used to have a season pass, I really love that place (but I’m not dumb enough to attempt the main house ha ha)
Thanks! It’s kind of funny, I have always been obsessed with putting stuff inside the houses. But it never works out that you can actually see them well enough. The sugar windows I used last year obscured the view of the lit Christmas tree, so this year I did crystal clear gelatin windows. And you still can’t really see the trees lol. I’m glad I didn’t bother trying to put lights on them.
Thanks, but I wouldn’t go nearly that far. Just google “Grove Park gingerbread” for examples that show I am in kindergarten compared to what some of those folks make (and they don’t use lasers).
Thank you! I do think that bit is pretty cute (although I wish I had put a gingerbread man in there instead of a tiny house )
