Jessica - go to AC Moore or Michaels and look at their decorations for small Xmas trees. We made our own snow globes for kids craft day and found deer, trees, wreaths, wagons, candy canes and alot more that worked out great. (Family Fun/Christmas Ornaments - I think it's called Winter Wonderland to see the ornament that we did). Family fun also has some great templates for felt birds that we will be making for next year.

I love those little villages as well. I'd love to make some as well. Will you do another post sharing any good links or tips?? (I hope so!)

For the houses, is this any use :

Also, I might have links to lots of felt ornament tutorials or ideas. I'll have a dig around. (Bookmarked them, but didn't get round to doing them!)

I was looking for the EXACT same thing a couple weeks ago. I found a great kit at http://www.hearthsong.com (search for snowy village kit), which comes with mini lights and mini trees. Very cute! I am going to take my time making my village for next Christmas.

I love those- they are on my list for one day when I have a surface to put them on!

I would suggest using real glass glitter for the snow and probably painting the paper instead of using colored paper for longevity? And most importantly store them wrapped in acid free tissue somewhere where no bugs can get to them!!

I searched for the same thing before Christmas. Here is what I found.

I'm planning to make some for next year, too. They are very collectible these days. Our Hobby Lobby store has the miniatures, not sure if you have those out East...

portobellopixie has a cute tutorial for a little felt ornament bird. :)
