Talk about frosted! This cute little winter village is a super easy and fun craft that you can use for winter decor. These “snow frosted” roofs sparkle in every direction; they are sure to grab you eye.
Supplies you need to make your own frosted winter village:
- Wood cutouts that resemble the shape of a house. I found mine at a local craft store. You can cut a 1×4 or 2×4 into this shape if you have some on hand.
- DecoArt® Holographic Illusions™ Glitter Paint in Crystal Ball and Fairy Pink (Available at Joanns)
- DecoArt® Americana™ Acrylic Paint in Lamp Black, Snow White, and Bubblegum Pink (Available at Joanns)
- Paint brushes.
You can see in this picture kind of how I did the snow look with the brush.
On the pink snow, I used the Fairy Pink. This turned out to be my favorite! I did the same technique as above, adding three coats also. On a whim, I decided to add snow to the bottom of each house using the same steps in 4 and 5 (not pictured, but can be seen in final photos).
I wasn’t sure how this village would turn out when I first started, so I was so happy with the result!
Pink is definitely not a color I decorate with, but it offers the perfect little pop of interest in my snowy village. To add height to a couple of houses, I styled them on top of a book.
I kept the rest of the decorations surrounding my village white so the houses would pop! Hopefully this shows that decorating with winter berries, garland, and glitter is totally okay past Christmas.
The pink on top of these houses reminds me of a candy wonderland. And the white glistens so beautifully!
Simple crafts like this are the best! We are making them as a family this year, and you should too! You’ll never know what direction your cute little houses will go. I’m thinking about doing gingerbread themed ones next!
