My husband is making cutting boards for Christmas gifts this year. This had generated a lot of wood scraps. I thought I’d grab a piece and make up a little village to put on a windowsill.

The original inspiration was here. Mine are not as fancy and are much smaller. The short buildings are maybe 2 inches high.


Cat added to show scale

I used a miter saw to cut the roofs. The paint was some metallic spray paint left over from past home projects, although I did wipe some acrylic gold over the one silver house to provide a little color contrast. These could also be cute with letters stenciled on them to spell out a Christmas message, but they will stay as is for now.
