Craft Corner: Winter Village

Who wants to wait until Christmas to create a magical Winter Wonderland in their home? Create this simple craft to enjoy all winter long! The best part; it won’t break so you can continue your Christmas shopping.


  • Glass box or lantern
  • Pretend snow
  • Adornments – trees, house, church, people, deer, etc.
  • Mini string lights

There’s no right or wrong way to complete this craft – it’s all up to your preference. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

To give the figurines height in the display box, stack mugs or paper at the bottom of the box and then cover them with the fake snow. Place the adornments of your choice in the display box and, when complete, place the mini string lights in and around the figurines. Pop in small adornments to add a pop of color like the deer in the photo below.
