DIY Christmas Village

Christmas villages have been around since I was a kid. I remember setting up my Mom’s collection every year with fake snow, street lamps and mini figurines. This year, the trend seems to be back but in DIY ways using lots of color and fun accents. This is my take on the same.


All of the mini birdhouses are from the dollar section of AC Moore. They have so many shapes and sizes they were too fun to pass up, I stained them for a rustic look too. I also got mini wired garland from AC Moore to make the mini wreaths the houses needed to feel extra Christmas-y. All of the trees styled in are also one dollar. The metallic ones are from the dollar store and these bottle brush trees are from five and below, but you can get them all over this time of year. I really enjoy the wood tones and metallic accents I love how this little project turned out.
