I have already shared my glitter and lace Christmas villages that I put together for my Christmas decorations this year. Before I made them on that larger scale, I tried out the idea in miniature. These sparkly houses are made from dollar store supplies and can be made in no time!
I am participating in another round of Craft Lightning hosted by Angie and Carolina of The Country Chic Cottage and 30 Minute Crafts respectively. This time around all the bloggers participating are creating holiday projects that can be completed in less than 15 minutes. Both Angie and Carolina will be rounding up all the projects at the end of each day, so be sure visit their blogs so you don’t miss any fun tutorials.
I found these little village houses at my local Dollar Tree. Each house is only three or four inches tall. They are cute as they are, but I wanted a modern clean look for my mini village. I gave the houses a quick coat of my trusted Plutonium Polar. Not only is it a true white spray paint, it dries in less than five minutes. That’s pretty lightning fast when it comes to spray paint.
I put Mod Podge on any areas of the houses where snow would accumulate: roofs, trees, chimneys, etc. While the Mod Podge was still wet, I sprinkled on some glass glitter and shook off the excess. Just that quickly, the dollar store village was snowy and bright!
I might head back to Dollar Tree to buy the lights that fit inside each house, but even if I don’t the village is awfully cute as it is!
Be sure to check out all the other lightning fast projects that are being shared this week on The Country Chic Cottage and 30 Minute Crafts!

OH MY! That is what I need to do with all of those houses at goodwill!!
I love how clean and modern this village became – with just some glitter and spray paint! Genius!
I really love the mountain background you drew. A perfect backdrop for your little village.
