Frosty Greetings to you and yours from Christine! We’ve had a snow day here with soft flakes falling all day long. It’s so pretty, that is until you have to shovel it! With that theme in mind, today I’ve created a sweet little Snow Village with brand new cutting files from TCP called Village Treat Boxes. These cute .svg files can be cut, or print and cut, sized to your liking and can hold any little treat you’d like to put in them. But I thought they’d be adorable to create a snow village to decorate a mantel or little corner of the house.
Doesn’t it look cozy? Each little box is about 3 1/2 inches high.
I used the files to create the boxes, and then used the print and cut portion of the .svg files to make templates where I could cut out rooves, doors, windows and accents to decorate each house. Alma has created a great video that shows you how to put the boxes together.
I knew I wanted to add in battery powered tea lights into each little house, so I cut openings in each box so light could get through the doors or windows.
Here’s a peek at the individual houses I created. I spritzed them all with shimmery sparkle, so each house has lots of shine. Then I added thick chunky glitter snow to the rooves and snowflake “wreaths” for the doors. Each box is tied at the top with some silver threaded ribbon to hold it together.
In the window you can see I’ve added the tea light in the box. And how cute is that tiny snowflake wreath!
And here’s a little pic of what it looks like in the dark with the tea lights shining. Like a welcoming little Hallmark town!
And here is what it looks like on one of my picture shelves in our entryway. With some sweet little bottle brushes in-between it makes a cherry little welcome to our home!
Here is what the houses look like in colour, and you can see that they look great sized up too.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little Snow Village Tour and are inspired to create one for yourself!
