Christmas in the City

I always wanted to have a Christmas village at home for the holidays. I love the Department56 lighted houses, but it’s kind of difficult and pricy to get them here in Sweden.

So I decided to do something of my own. Something simple and clean… like cardboard, cotton and candles = Xmas

3Cs = Xmas (I’ve discovered the Christmas formula!) smiley

To let it snow, I bought some snowflakes that my husband helped me to hang from the ceiling. And let’s not forget thin paper on the windows to create the glass effect to let the light go through them from the background.

There is no Christmas without Santa Claus, so… I added some vinyl as a background.

And… Voilà!

By the way, the black rectangular in the middle is my husband’s speaker… I can’t mess with the surround system otherwise we wouldn’t be able to listen to the Christmas carols so well (that is what he says 😉

Merry Christmas and hope you have had as much fun doing your decorations as I had doing ours!!!
