getting ready for Christmas #2 – a Christmas village

with 6 comments

I’m in a crafty mood today.  My inspiration came from Pinterest.


First I made some paper houses.  I copied a charming design from Pinterest and did a quick rendition with Paint.  Then I printed the house parts on cardstock, cut them out and glued them together.  The original design is shown at .


Then, using wire and rope, I made three ‘bottle-brush’ trees to go with the houses.  The method of making various versions of these trees is found at .  Mine are rather rustic-looking.


Then I added some Epsom salts for snow and I have my little Christmas village.

Christmas village – two of the houses and three trees – I’d like to add a little church and some sparkles on the trees


If you have never gone on Pinterest before, have a look at some of the Christmas decorations I have found in my explorations
