It might be fun to live in this little snowy Christmas village during the holiday season! How fun! Such a big departure from my the usual way I style my mantel. Last year I found a wood cut-out of a little village and tucked it away for this year, not knowing how I would use it. When I found it early in the season I knew a Christmas Village would be a big part of this year’s Christmas decor. And Christmas decorating always begins with my mantel! See how it all started…
The little cut-out village (from Target) was originally wood and I painted it white. I used Blessed from A Maker’s Studio. You can find it HERE. Use my #813524 when ordering.
To the village, I added small houses also painted with Blessed and added silver and gold leafed rooves. Gilding is one of my favorite diy’s to do and these little houses with their fancy rooves were so easy and so adorable! The Gold and Silver can be found HERE and HERE. And use #813524.
And what Christmas village would be complete without Christmas trees? I grabbed several different ones from my “Christmas tree” stash and planted them across the mantel and on the hearth. Oops… one tree down! One oh, so tiny tree fell and it took a bitsy avalanche of snow with it! Can you find it?
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you… everything lights up! And the little village comes alive with twinkling lights and candle glow. I’ll save that for my CHRISTMAS NIGHTS post just before Christmas!
Merry Christmas from my little town to yours!
