“Creating and Exchanging Ideas”
From the day after Thanksgiving to New Years Day we adorn our homes with Christmas decor. Many of us truly love decorating for Christmas but wish it would last more than one month. How can you use Christmas decorations for your Winter Home Decorations?

The advent is rooted from a Latin word meaning coming and arrival. Advent is the season observed by Christian churches as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for both the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus and the return of Jesus at the Second Coming.
Christmas is the most wonderful time of year, where everything and everybody is merry and bright. It is the season celebrating the Birthday of Jesus. There are many signs of Christmas, one being the advent.
The advent calendar is used to count the days of Advent in anticipation of Christmas. The advent calendar adds to the excitement of counting the days to Christmas. There are many unique advent calendars and calendar ideas for counting the days until Christmas. I have scoured the shopping network looking for unique ideas and here is what I’ve found.
Although Christmas only comes once a year, it is my most favorite time of the year, especially for decorating. Trees, lights, garland, ribbon, are all very festive, but there is one decorated display that I love to create each year…
Yes, it’s the Christmas Village!!! I love the resin villages, wood villages, box villages, and as you can see the galvanized villages.
In 2017, I began purchasing galvanized villages from Michael’s Arts and Crafts. The village houses were displayed in the candle section at Michael’s for tea lights. The price range was from $4.99 – $29.99. I purchased the galvanized villages and painted galvanized villages in red, white, black, and gold. I decided that I would create a village using just the galvanized buildings and battery-operated tea lights. I thought “what can I use to make my village come to life besides the resin and plaster village accessories.”
I search several craft stores, looked at a lot of magazines, and Pinterest. I decided that I would use the Tiny Treasures collection by Ashland from Michael’s to create the ambiance I was looking for.
The Christmas Village here was displayed in my kitchen and includes other Christmas decor that helped link the wall decor in my kitchen to create a beautiful Table Decor Christmas Display.
I would love to know what you think…
