If you love watching houses light up on cold winter nights, then you’ll love creating this Mock Gingerbread Village. This Christmas craft project includes free printable templates for the village buildings. Outline the doors and windows of your buildings with puffy paint to make your village look like it was constructed out of sweet gingerbread and icing. This DIY Christmas decoration would look cute lined up underneath your Christmas tree. You could also perch this holiday village on a bookshelf or mantel. Shine a strip of LED spotlights on the back to highlight your awesome handiwork in making Christmas decorations.

Who doesn't think that gingerbread is cute? I mean, these houses are just the most adorable thing I have seen in a long time. I want to create an entire village, but I never thought about the houses being so close together. I was thinking about spreading them out and adding holiday trees between the buildings.
