16 Christmas Villages To Celebrate the Season

Posted by Meghan Quinones
Bring your home to life this holiday season with an adorable DIY Christmas village! Check out these 16 ideas.

I remember when I was younger loving when Christmas was around the corner. It always meant trees, lights, and holiday villages where making an appearance.

My mom didn't have an entire village (I am not sure why she didn't!), but she did have a few little houses she would display that had lights in them. I would stare in the windows of the little houses and imagine who lived there and what they did in their tiny festive houses. To pay homage to the small, festive houses my mom had, I thought I would do a round-up post to inspire all of you to get on the Christmas village bandwagon (that is, if you aren't on it already!).
