I love Christmas villages, especially all white Christmas villages! Every time I see them, I wish I had one! I have a small collection of Dept. 56 villages that I pulled out of storage. I quickly remembered why I didn’t ever display them. They were pretty large and I’ve just never had a good place to set them all up. Plus, they weren’t white. Then I noticed I had another collection of a smaller village that my sister had given me years ago! I’ve always loved this little village as well. It was small and dainty like I wanted, but didn’t quite have the look I wanted. So, like a lot of other things around my house, I painted them! This was so simple to do! I took some white spray paint and set the villages outside.
See all the sweet little greenery on the buildings? I covered those up while I was painting because I wanted to keep those! I’m really loving how they’re looking! Once they were dry, I brought them in and looked around for a place to display them. I decided on the console table underneath the TV. That way, I could see them every night!
I bought garland from Home Depot the day before, so I laid that out on top. You could definitely just use fake garland but I had this and I wanted to use it. I also had several little Christmas trees that I placed throughout.
And what’s a snow village without snow? I also had a bag of “snow” from years ago so I sprinkled it all throughout. I dread when I have to clean this up…It is messy! But it was worth it! I loved how it turned out!
