Christmas Village on a Platter


A Walk in the Countryside: Dollar Tree Christmas Village
 
It’s Christmas time, pretty baby…!  I just love Christmas!  This year I asked my mom to host Thanksgiving so I can get a jumpstart on all the Christmas décor.  We starting pulling out boxes and boxes and boxes of decorations!  Something new that I decided to do this year was a little Christmas village.

In year’s past, I haven’t had any place to put one but I saw one on Pinterest using a silver tray.  So off to the Dollar Tree I went!  Oh, if you want to check out my Pinterest Christmas board which includes the inspiration for this project, click here.

I picked up all the figurines, buildings and small trees there.  I did get one slighter larger tree at Wal-Mart for $2.  The snow was purchased after Christmas last year for 25 cents.

I used a couple of cloches and the largest silver tray I had….I really wished it was a little bigger.

I just loved how it looks!  It’s been years since I had a little village!  Do you have your own village?  If so, how do you display it?
