Tips and great Xmas village Ideas

A Christmas village like Lemax, Lenox, and department 56 buildings collectibles is a chance to create a three-dimensional holiday scene in your home. With animated and lighted pieces and figurines, you could create a country Christmas scene complete with a church that lights up and children skating on a pond. Displaying your village scenes creatively will make your display more interesting.
A lighted curio cabinet can spotlight your Christmas village display. You can use the different levels of the cabinet to set up different scenes within your village. Simply remove the items already in your curio cabinet and replace them with your Christmas village during the Christmas season.

Shelving units, whether installed in the wall or simply stand-alone bookshelves, can be used for displaying your Christmas village pieces. Plain wooden shelves are inexpensive enough that you could purchase and use them just for your Christmas villages, and they can be easily stored in any garage or basement during the rest of the year.

A glass-top table can display Christmas scenes beautifully. There are many Christmas village pieces that can be displayed from any angle, including animated skating rinks and moving trains, and these could be part of a display you create under the glass on your glass-top table.Under the Christmas tree or on the fireplace mantel that are traditional locations for showcasing a Christmas village, but you can also get creative with where you set up your display. For example, if you have an unused fireplace, you can set up part of your display inside the fireplace.
Try to have some kind of central idea that your display is based around. Keeping a village display limited to one kind of Christmas scene can make it easier to develop, as stringing together unrelated pieces can lack cohesiveness and can ruin the visual impact of your display. Instead of using all of your village pieces in one big display, try breaking them up into scenes and displaying them in different parts of the house.

Before you start setting up your village, be sure there that are plenty of power outlets available to light your display up. Running long extension cords from all over the house is unattractive and dangerous, so make sure there are adequate power sources near your display area before you get started.

How to do Christmas Village Displays

Christmas village displays are an exciting part of the holidays that every generation care share in, even kids. However, setting up a Christmas village can turn into a daunting & expensive task. Here is how to do it cheap & easy.

Step 1: Collect over time. Whether you make your pieces or buy them, just add one new building every year. This not only cuts down on cost but helps form a Christmas tradition.

Step 2: Use what you already have. Find quilt batting for snow. Have your kid's raid their toy chest for anything miniature. Make small trees out of legos or use the little people from their play sets. If you have a toy train around, set it up around the tree with the Christmas village around it.

Step 3: Personalize. There is no right or wrong way to make a Christmas village display. You can set up the village in a quirky place, like your china cabinet. You can use non traditional items to make it uniquely yours or even incorporate jewelry.
 

How to make a Snow Village

 

You may have seen snow villages in store window displays or in people's homes and wished for one of your own. Creating one isn't hard. All you need is to purchase a few items and have enough room to set your snow village up where it won't be disturbed during daily life.
Snow Village Supplies
The basis a snow good village is the buildings. You may already have a collection, but if you don't they are easy to get. If it isn't the holidays, go to a Christmas all-year-round store in your town or online to purchase them. Don't forget to look for details that will make your village special, such as stop signs, park benches, people and fences. You can find these items in toy stores by the miniature-car section.
Artificial Snow
Snow is the key element to a snow villages. Quilt batting is an instant blanket of snow for your village. Quilt batting is fluffy, white sheets of cotton, wool or polyester that can be purchased in yards at sewing supply and fabric stores. To add snow to the rooftops of your buildings sprinkle them a bit of talcum powder or baking soda.
Set Up Your Snow Village
To set up your snow village, find a stable area on which to place it. A card table is a good choice. Cover the table with a white or festively colored tablecloth to hide the legs. Then, lay down your sheet of quilt batting. For hills, roll up some extra batting and place it underneath. Cut off any excess batting from around the edges of the table. Finally, start setting up your buildings and accessories. Add a road by placing strips of black felt or construction paper between the buildings. For extra realism, build up drifts of your fake snow on either side of the road and around objects. Add snowplow and cars purchased from a toy store.

 

Christmas Villge Set Up Tips

Christmas villages are a traditional part of Christmas decorating for many people. Fun to collect and beautiful when displayed, they usually feature lit buildings and scenes of people enjoying the holiday season, complete with snow-covered trees, tiny snowmen, and frozen ponds of ice. Set up your Christmas village the easy way by making sure you are organized before you bring out the boxes of village pieces.

The Basics
First, you are going to need to make sure you have enough electrical outlets. Create a plan for how your village is going to get power to light the buildings. You may need to use one or two power strips, depending on how large your village is. Connect them to the underside or backside of tables with painter's tape, which is strong enough to hold a power strip but will not leave marks on the furniture. Then, lay out the cords that run from the buildings to the power strip so you can see how each building will fit into your plan. Tie the cords together with twist ties, and tuck them out of sight as much as possible. Finally, check the light bulb at the end of each cord to make sure it is working properly. If it is burnt out, replace it.
The Setup
After you have laid out and plugged in the cords (leave them off for now), lay down your ground. Most people use a white cloth or piece of cotton batting to simulate snow. To create "hills," tuck some upside-down round plastic bowls under the cotton, or under some of the boxes the village buildings are housed in. Then, set out your village buildings and attach them to each cord, slipping the light bulb at the end of each cord inside each building. Turn on the lights and let your buildings glow!
The Final Touches
Finally, add the final touches to your village, such as people, trees, and sleighs. To make items stand easier, attach a piece of tacky putty to the bottom of the item and push it down firmly on the cotton. You may have to add more putty under the cotton as well, so that the figure and the cotton both are attached securely to the table. This works especially well with lightweight trees. A round, frameless mirror works well as an ice-skating pond. Simply heap "snow" in the form of cotton balls around the edges, and place a skating figure or two on the "ice." Place two or three homes facing the pond, and perhaps a church. On the other side of your table, create a business center with your business village buildings.

Xmas Carols

The Christmas Song

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping on your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,
And folks dressed up like Eskimos.

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe,
Help to make the season bright.
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow,
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

They know that Santa's on his way;
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.
And every mother's child is going to spy,
To see if reindeer really know how to fly.

And so I'm offering this simple phrase,
To kids from one to ninety-two,
Although its been said many times, many ways,
A very Merry Christmas to you!

 

Oh Christmas Tree

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree!
How are thy leaves so verdant!
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How are thy leaves so verdant!

Not only in the summertime,
But even in winter is thy prime.

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How are thy leaves so verdant!
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure doth thou bring me!

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure doth thou bring me!
For every year the Christmas tree,
Brings to us all both joy and glee.

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure doth thou bring me!

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy candles shine out brightly!

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy candles shine out brightly!
Each bough doth hold its tiny light,
That makes each toy to sparkle bright.
