Christmas Tree Toy Car Display

Good Day, Crafters!
If you're like me and you have a younger brother who loved to collect
 toy cars as a kid, or even still collects them now, I have a great project that is
 perfect for them.  It's simple and turns out to be a
really cute display once it's finished.
Supplies Needed
Hot Wheels Toy Car
Hot Glue Gun
Twine (not pictured)
Hearty Clay-White
White Acrylic Paint
Mod Podge
Powdered Snow
Wood Slice

Let's Get Started!
First, plug in your hot glue gun so that it can heat up.   Then, paint
 one side of your wood slice white.  It doesn't have to be perfect and reach the edges.
Let dry.
Next, shape some of the clay into hill-like shapes.  Let them dry and then hot glue them onto the disc to create a small landscape.  Make sure that there is still enough room for your toy car to fit!

After that, brush a thick layer of Mod Podge over your entire landscape and sprinkle on some powdered snow.

Next, hot glue your pine trees to the scene. 

For this next step, you're gonna need about 10 inches of twine.  Put a drop of hot glue on top of your car to help secure your mini tree for tying. 
Wrap the twine around the car and the tree and tie it off underneath the car.  Cut off any excess twine. Add a drop of hot glue on the bottom of each wheel to stick your scene and you're done!

These are really cute as a small decoration on a coffee table or even as a small centerpiece.  If you're
able to find a small toy car that can fit the tiny Home for the Holidays trees that are about 1 inch tall, you could even make it into an ornament by adding an extra loop of twine at the top!
As always, have fun!
