DIY CHRISTMAS VILLAGE

'Tis the season! I'm all about that cheap and cheerful holiday decor, that looks cheerful, but not cheap! I spotted these little wood houses at Dollarama and created a little white and gold Dunn-Vegas village, full of glitter and glam for only $30.25!!


This project was really fun because there are no rules when you're making your own village--simply choose a colour palette, shop your palette or find supplies around the house and go for it!



// HOW TO //

Here are some basic steps I took to make my village:

1. I stained the houses with Minwax Stain 'Weathered Oak' using a foam brush and let them dry overnight.

2. Decorate! Go to town with paint, glitter glue, fake berries, acrylic snowflakes, anything really!

3. I glue-gunned faux fur to the bases of each of the houses to look like snow, as well as on some of the roofs.

4. I went back and added more details to each house!

5. I styled the village using the trees from Dollarama and added some twinkle with a garland and white lights!
