Beautiful Paper Christmas Village DIY

Share the fun!

This white paper Christmas village will set the mood for a winter wonderland in your home.

One of my favorite Christmas decorations are Christmas villages and houses.

We have a ceramic Christmas village with all the details that the kids love putting together every year. But you can always have more than one Christmas village in your decor!

And for this year’s snowy ski lodge themed 7 Days of Paper Christmas decor, I knew I needed a white paper Christmas village. It looks just like a small mountain town covered in snow.

Paper Christmas Houses

No village is complete without a variety of cute Christmas houses. For this paper Christmas village, I kept things simple and created a 5 different styles.

The 5 paper houses look like a variety of homes or churches. If you want to make a larger Christmas village, you can always duplicate your favorites.

All the houses have open windows and no bottom. If you want them to light-up, you can place flameless tea lights inside or a string of fairy lights around them.

And to turn your paper houses into a white winter village, sprinkle faux snow around them. But don’t forget to also add it to their roofs!

How to Make a DIY paper Christmas village

Supplies:

  • Paper Christmas village templates
    • I am sharing the cut files & PDF for these paper Christmas houses in my subscriber library until 11/25/2021, then they will move to the shop. Click here to subscribe to my newsletter and gain access to all the freebies.

  • Cardstock
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Printer or Electronic cutting machine like a Silhouette Cameo or Cricut Maker

Cut out the pieces

Each Christmas house is cut out of 1 piece of cardstock. If you are using the PDF, the houses are slightly smaller in order to allow for a print border.

If using a cutting machine, you can scale them larger if you want by cutting on multiple pieces of paper or a 12×12 paper.
