a colorful christmas village is my fave

you are my fave: wooden cut-out village
I think a few of these cut-out villages would be perfect lined up along a mantle. Maybe in all white? Or with color with some added snow and mini figurines.

To make your own you’ll need:
– thin sheet of wood (like balsa)
– razor blade
– acrylic paint
– double sided tape
– light strip (this one’s from IKEA)

Step One: Create a village pattern out of paper and trace it onto your sheet of wood.
Step Two: Carefully cut it out with razor blade.

Step Three: Paint in colors of your choosing.
Step Four: Adhere to light strip with double sided tape.
Step Five: Plug in for a little festive glow.

    You might be able to make these from those stiff felt sheets that have a sticky back.
