Ever want to try to create your own Christmas Village at home but don’t know where to start? Here are some guidelines      

Step by step

Step 1: Find out the size of the area you would like to create your village in. It can be a cupboard, a table or a DIY space with crates and books. As long as they are flat surfaces you can create your own unique village!

Step 2: Think of the key buildings or spots of your village and estimate the amount of space they require. For example a water fountain, train station or ferris wheel that takes up more space and generally has more people around.

Step 3 : Layout the height of the surfaces. Do you wish to create some depth or height differences to your village? Lay some books or blocks where you want to create a little hill for your house to sit on.

Step 4 : Apply the layer of snow on the surface that you arranged. The base layer can be a piece of white cloth or faux fur.

Step 5: Place all the large building blocks for your village with some space in between (especially if you want a polar express inside your village), work out the direction it’s facing (are they all facing the same way or slightly away from each other?)

Step 6: Now place different sizes trees next to the buildings you have placed. This makes your village more realistic.

Step 7: You can also add white foam, or faux snow to add more depth to your white base so that it’s not only a white surface.

Step 8: Add little humans or even pets to your village, they can be of specific character for instance postmen/ Santa Claus / Train conductor - now your village comes to life!
