Miniature Peddler's Cart - Christmas Treats - VIDEO TUTORIAL

For those of you into miniatures, how about a peddler’s cart filled with tasty holiday treats. I decorated the cart with gingerbread chipboard trim, a wreath, holly leaf images, gingerbread images, hanging lights, candy canes, and two tin soldiers.
Many of the cookies are made from polymer clay and cookie cutter cabochons which I’ll cover in the video tutorial. 
There are chocolates (decorated with slices of polymer clay canes) and lollypops made from beads.  
I used various pre-made candy canes, cakes, and gingerbread house beads.  The large wrapped trees are paper images and the wrapped gingerbread men are buttons (from my stash) decorated with slices of a polymer clay cane.
I jazzed up the sides with candy cane and gingerbread images and on the side with the pull, I hung candy canes.
This piece will make a great addition to my Streets of Paris shops when I decorate them for Christmas.

You might recognize the Peddler’s Cart kit as it is the same one I used for the Streets of Paris Artist cart.

In the video tutorial below I'll walk you through how I assembled and decorated the cart plus how I made the tasty treats.
