Christmas Tree With Village #Christmas #tree #village #decorhomeideas
Mike Guidry

“I worked on my parents Christmas village today, they do the tree and I do the village, the fence is very old and was under my mom’s parents tree, the village is ceramic buildings and lots of the trees have working tiny lights, also a few lawn ornaments light up as well.

The first few pictures show the basic layout, I use styrofoam from the house boxes to make different height layers and then cover with snow, thus adding height as well as a place to hide all the wiring and power cords.

Then I took a few pictures after the lighting is complete, I use buffalo snow (looks like quilt batting but made for holiday decorating) to hide any wires as well as make the transitions of height look more natural.

I make it different every year and hope you enjoy seeing my thought process and work πŸŒ²πŸŒ²πŸŒ²πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜ new this year we’re some pink flamingos for mom πŸ¦©πŸ¦©πŸ¦©πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜” – says Mike.
