37. Christmas Tree With Village
“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 🌲🌲🌲😁😁😁 new this year we’re some pink flamingos for mom 🦩🦩🦩😁😁😁” – says Mike.
