Hi Everyone!

This year’s theme/scene is

A Snowy Christmas Village

but not the villages you are use to seeing!

Nope… this is a Kendra style Christmas Village…

BIG with a artsy – folk – twist!

Hope you enjoy!

This photo I added a red lantern… can you tell I love old lanterns?!

Christmas Mantel Snowy Village

The houses were made from all different kinds of cardboard boxes

(any I could find). 

I used a can of snow to make the “dusting” on the roof tops.

Girl and snowmen are foam core and cardboard cut outs… didn’t have time to cut them out of wood like I had originally planned.
