Homemade Snow Village!

I worked on these for several hours yesterday. It was a fun project to do, although if you have little girls around it's almost irresistable (sp?) for them as a dollhouse.

The little paper mache houses were $10 total and it took 1 and a half cans of white spray paint (0.97 each), some glitter, and a few plastic pearls. Overall a fun, easy, and inexpensive xmas project.









I may cover each window with parchment paper and put lights inside like this...haven't decided yet...


And how cute are these glittery little church ornaments I found? I don't know if you can see it but I put one in the middle of one of my burlap wreaths...

Adorable village! I like it with the lights inside. (I have one of those glitter ornaments, too and really like your idea of puttting it in a burlap wreath.)

Those are adorable. I've never seen them for sale, but could totally see myself spending hours decorating them. I think they would look magical at night with lights inside them.
