A Christmas Village Re-ImaginedDecember 2, 2017

I love a good Christmas village. In fact, I think I started collecting Christmas houses when I was a teenager. Every year or so, I would add a house to my collection. This is what the houses look like.
Standard Christmas village houses, right? Nothing special.
I got tired of looking at them in their boring, store-bought, cookie-cutter colors. So I decided to spruce them up. Here’s what I used:
The first step was to simply paint them silver but I didn’t want to completely conceal their original colors underneath so I diluted the paint 50%. Equal parts water and paint. I love the way they came out.
So quaint and cozy.
Still so magical though, right?
Next, I wanted to add a bit of sparkle to them so the natural choice is glitter, right? Gold glitter, of course! But just on the roofs.
I am totally in love with the way these babies came out.
I love that the gold roofs make the set look so uniform.
I put them on this wall shelf I’ve had around for a while. I recently painted it white and I love the way the houses look on here.
It’s perhaps one of my fave Christmas projects this year. This garland was up there, too!
Do you like the houses with the gold roofs?
Have you ever painted Christmas houses?
