The Holidays // a DIY christmas village

IMG_3043.jpg
How cute are these little houses! The best part is you don't even need to be crafty to make a little village of your own like the one you see here. A little bit of paint, a few paint brushes, pretty ribbon and a handful of pre made wooden bird houses flipped around.

Add a few faux trees and twinkle lights and you have a custom DIY Christmas Village!

I have been on the hunt for the perfect little Christmas Village that didn't cost a fortune. There was a specific look that I had in mind, for the life of me I couldn't find exactly what I wanted in any store, so I decided to make my own.

A trip to Joann Fabrics and $30 bucks later I had all the makings for my own little village.

IMG_3014.jpg
Pretty Ribbon, buttons, pom pom's, glitter- anything goes when designing your own village.

I went with a minimalist village- white and gold // super simple and pretty.

Pick a variety of houses in all shapes and sizes to start with. I also recommend purchasing an extra house as your "trial" house. My first house I painted was definitely a trial and error. Painting a demo house will help you streamline the design which will help get all the other houses spot on.

I painted my houses white all over. One coat, I liked the rustic look one coat gave the house- but put as many coats on and in whatever color. Make your houses all one color, or each one a different color.

My secondary color was gold. I love the look of white and gold during the Holidays and I knew the metallic gold I selected would shimmer in the twinkle lights I planned to display at the base of my Village.

IMG_3035.jpg
I then painted each house a little different - ombre', stripped roofs, ribbon detail.

Play around and if you don't like a design simply paint it solid!

This project was super simple and fun. 

Easy enough to do with the littles or for a girl's night!

The Holidays // a DIY Christmas Village

you will need:
3-6 Wood Birdhouses // I found mine at Joann Fabrics
Base Color Acrylic Paint
Accent Acrylic Paint
Paint Brushes in various sizes
Accents such as ribbon, buttons, pom pom's
Hot Glue Gun
Faux Mini Christmas Trees for the village
Twinkle Lights

assembly:
Paint all your Houses your base color and allow to dry.

Use your accent color to paint your roofs and trim and other details that suite your design.

Using a bead of hot glue affix your ribbon and other accents to your house.

Set your village on a flat surface and decorate with faux trees of various sizes and twinkle lights.

Sit back and marvel at your craftiness and brag to all your friends that you made a whole Christmas Village!

Yum

  31. Hi honey. I am Shweta Gupte a well groomed and passionate babe about sex making. Chennai Escorts is massive and so is the escort industry so if you are someone who wants to explore a real escort who does sex with all the intentions and passion then I will please you to the fullest until you come right inside my cunt. I am a babe who will fulfill all your wildest cravings and will excite you to the most so if you want to avail my services then do give me a bang by booking me. Being a Chennai Call Girls I love to get dirty while sex I also prefer when my client give me a rough bareback which makes me mourn and listener will cum as well. I love to get drilled like a dirty bitch or submissive mistress where on the other hand I am equally exited for a soft core. I understand that size is not the concern while making out all that matters is the way someone is making me turn on or making me wet. A Chennai Escorts Service like me loves to try various positions while making out from missionary to cowgirl but my much loved is girl on top as takes me to the heights of orgasm and make my client feel my g-spot.
