Welcome to my Blog & Day 5 of my Christmas Week series. I am sorry this post is late today, i have had lots to do and just never seem to got time for this post until this evening. Anyway its here and so is this amazing Christmas project! I am so proud of this. Its so beautiful and really easy to make. You have to try one! You will love it!!
You may remember a couple of weeks back i made a small light-up Fish Tank. I think i may of mentioned in the Blog post or Video tutorial that i also had another idea for it. Well i think you can guess this is it!! I new i wanted to make some kind of contained Christmas village. To be honest, it turned out way better than i thought it would. Its sitting on my Coffee Table as we speak! It looks stunning lit up.
As you can see in the above picture, the roof comes off so you can turn your Tealights on and off and also replace them etc. They are hidden inside the Roof . I would imagine you could fit 3 Tealights in, i just put 2 in mine.
The fake snow i used in the box is from Hobby craft. You can pick it up on Amazon, Ebay and even places like B&M if you are in the UK. The snow i used on top of my Roof and little houses is True Snow by Aleene. Its great stuff and dries hard so really looks like snow. The little Houses and Trees i used are just cheap Dies i picked up online. If you check out my YouTube Video i have listed all the products in the description.
