Joyful Village


Share the JOY this Christmas with this simple wood house project.


For my “Joyful Village," I  started with some wood trim scrap pieces cut into simple whimsical house shapes. My pieces measure 4″ x 2″, 3″ x 2-3/4″ and 3-1/2″ x 2-1/4″.


I painted each house with a couple coats of a nice brownish gray.


After painting the houses…
  • Create a roof with a strip of black corrugated paper.
  • Add color to white embroidered letters (if desired) by dampening them with water, then rubbing them across an ink pad.
  • Glue a letter on to each house.
  • Make a mini wreath and swags using pine craft stems.
  • Print out the date on white cardstock and punch out each number with a punch to fit inside small metal charm frames.
  • Tie the charms to the wreath and swags with ribbon and glue them onto the front of each house.
