Wooden house Christmas decoration

Decorate your home with these festive-looking houses

Anyone who enjoys a bit of sawing, sanding and painting will find this pretty DIY winter village easy to make. With their added touches of white, the little houses look like they’re covered in snow. If you want to create a cosy lighting effect for Christmas, you can drill a hole in some of the houses to make a candle holder. The best way to give your decorative wooden houses their snow-covered roofs is to use edding permanent spray in white. You can, of course, paint your wooden houses in other colours if you wish, as there are over 35 shades to choose from, all of which are exceptionally opaque, quick-drying and long-lasting.
