What could be prettier than adding a white Christmas village display to the top of a table or other flat surface in your home during Christmas? And it was so easy to put together! I’m sharing my miniature village and I hope you have one as part of your Christmas decor too!

Today I’m part of the PINTEREST CHALLENGE sponsored by Cindy at Country Road 407. And if you are coming from her post, Welcome! Welcome to all!
Each month Cindy chooses a Pinterest Pin and challenges a group of bloggers to interpret that pin.
October’s challenge was this darling cut-out village in a jar from Northern Feeling.
Isn’t that little village just adorable? So Creative!
WHAT I USED TO MAKE THE CHRISTMAS VILLAGE DISPLAY
This challenge was meant for me! I don’t collect lots of holiday tchotchkes but I do love trees and little houses.
A few years ago I found little craft paper mache houses and was inspired to transform them into little Christmas houses. You can see them HERE.
To make them Christmas village worthy I painted them white and silver-leafed the rooves. What a fun and easy project! Look for an upcoming DIY soon.
So I brought the houses up from the basement along with the white trees I collect to be the backbone of my snowy white village!
To mimic the jar Katrin’s paper cut out village in a jar I chose to use my favorite cloche.
I usually pair a cloche with a cake pedestal. I just love to elevate them. And a pretty cake plate is the perfect riser! It makes the cloche stand out even more!
I also used lots of white/natural bottle brush trees I’ve been collecting for years! I have such an obsession with Christmas trees!
And to make this pretty little snow-covered village I also used another of my favorites.. silver and mercury glass ornaments.
And of course S-N-O-W! Oh, I love snow! Faux or real! So I used it liberally and it gives this village that fuzzy, burry, ethereal look!
Best snow ever is from the Pottery Barn. I’ve used it over and over again for years! See it below.
The little houses are lit with a string of fairy lights.
When I made these Christmas houses I cut a flap in the back of each house to put a battery tea light in or, in this case, fairy lights.
I also circled the bottom of the cloche with the fairy lights too!
BE CREATIVE AND CREATE
Once I collected everything I went to work creating a little snowy village!
It was really so easy!
The little houses became the focal point of the little snowy scene and the trees, ornaments and snow filled in this dreamy little village!
It’s important to find inspiration and use it as a springboard to create the ideas in your head!
And there is no better time to bring those sugarplum ideas to life then at Christmas!
