Christmas villages seem like a lot of hard work, but once you have set one up for the first time and see how much more magical your home looks for the holidays, you will be hooked! The best part about Christmas villages is that they can be as small or as large as you want them to be. That means that one year, you can have a couple of houses and a few years later, your village can grow to the size of a six-foot table. Or you can keep it small at just a few houses and still have it looking as gorgeous as any village out there!
Add a Christmas Village to Your Holiday Decorations with These Easy Steps
1. Find a Location for Your New Christmas Village
The first thing that you will need to do is find a location for your Christmas village. This could be on an end table, a sofa table, or a six-foot folding table that you place near a window or in the foyer. There are dozens of locations that you can choose and only you know where it will fit inside your home.
2. Boost Things Up a Little
When you have more than a few houses and buildings in your Christmas village, it is necessary to boost some of them up a little. This ensures that everything can be seen, and nothing gets lost in the sea of Christmassy things! We recommend boosting houses and buildings near the center of the village and if you are only going to be looking at the village from one side, boosting those items in the back a little more too.
3. Add Snow
No, we do not want you to go outside and gather snow to put in your village. However, you can purchase fake snow and place it on the bottom of your village. This will give it a Christmassy look and feel, plus cover those items that you used to boost things up.
4. Add Lights
One of the best things you can do with your Christmas village is light it up and it is easier to do than you think. There are plenty of lighting options and they can all be plugged into an electrical outlet or even a power strip.
5. Add Little Touches
All those houses and buildings will look amazing, but there are plenty of other little touches you can add to your village. A few favorites include trees, sleds, people, skating rinks, snowmen, and little animals.
Once your Christmas village is set up, make sure you show all your friends, because they will be amazed that you took the time to set up something so beautiful! However, you will know the truth and that is the fact that it really doesn’t take that much time at all to set up a Christmas village along with all the rest of your holiday décor!
