Ever since I started my Christmas Village Set, I’ve tried to add two new pieces to it every year. But, due to the high level of detail I include in these designs, coupled with the general craziness of this time of year, it’s always a race for me to see if I can actually make it happen. This year I managed to do it, and it makes me super happy to see my little village expanding!

Supplies

How to Make It

1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the pieces for your Christmas village inn.

Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending them through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re having trouble with the score lines, check out this video.

 

Prep Work

2. Start by layering on all of the decorative elements to your front and back walls, like so. Be sure to place the vellum window pieces on the inside, and all of the other pieces on the outside.

 

Assembling the Side Walls

3. For your side walls, start by layering the decorative window elements—once again with the vellum piece on the inside, and the two window frame pieces on the outside.

Next, take your elongated diamond piece and fold along the score lines. Fold the smaller tabs inward and the longer tabs outward.

Fold the attached window down, and slip the diamond piece into the back side of the hole. Glue the longer tabs to the inside, following the two edges of the window hole. Then, add some glue to the smaller, front tabs and attach the window.

 

Assembling the Building

4. Use the long tabs on each of the side walls to attach them to the front and back walls of the building. Use the tab at the top to glue the pieces together and form a peak.

 

Assembling the Base

5. Take your two grey base pieces and layer on the brown, decorative stips like so.

Next, fold along the score lines. Attach the disconnected, long side to the back. Use the small tabs on each corner to connect the whole thing together and form your base.

After that, attach your “snow” perimeter to the top (be sure not to cover any of the slits). Attach the brown pathway in the gap up front.

 

Assembling the Roof

6. Attach the building to the base by lining up the little bottom tabs with the slits provided. Glue the tabs to the underside.

Take your two, brown roof pieces and curl the scalloped shingles upward. Then, attach them to the two sides of the building.

Add the four snow drift pieces around the roof wherever you’d like.

 

Assembling the Stairs

7. Take the stair piece and fold along the score lines, accordion-style.

Fold each of the little tabs inward and use them to attach the steps to the two sides—forming a staircase.

Attach the whole thing to the front/center of your base.

 

Finishing Touches

8. Add some little pine trees all around your inn to really bring your project to life!

To make the trees, take four tree pieces of the same size and fold them in half. Add some hot glue to the folded edge of one of the pieces, and attach another piece opposite it. Add hot glue along the center, and attach another piece. Then, repeat the process on the other side, until all four pieces are connected, and your tree can stand on its own.

Make five little pine trees, and arrange them however you’d like around the inn. Your Christmas Village inn is open for business!

I mean, how adorable is that? I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t hesitate to book a stay at this inn! Just look at the proximity to the ice rink—you can’t beat that.

This year I have been seeing more people take on the challenge of my Christmas village designs than ever, and it makes my heart so happy. Seeing all the love and attention to detail you all put into these projects is so fulfilling, and always makes me smile!

    I love these projects! However, on every Christmas Village template I am unable to download. I’ve also noticed on Pinterest that other users have the same issue. Can you explain how to download the template? Thank you!
