The Christmas countdown has begun! Seriously, I’m having a hard time accepting it’s December already. It seems like Fall just flew by. I didn’t even have a chance to whip out any Thanksgiving crafts!
Well, I’m not about to make the same mistake with Christmas (it is my favorite holiday after all). So let’s start decking our dollhouse halls with some miniature Christmas crafts!
Now, I’m willing to bet you all know how to make a miniature Christmas wreath and Christmas tree. Heck, you don’t even have to make them. You can buy them at Hobby Lobby for less than $5!
So, why don’t we create something a little unique? Something like…
Miniature Christmas Villages!
This craft is as easy as it gets. All you need are some stickers and basic craft tools.
- A sheet of mini, Christmas-themed, puffy house stickers (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby).
- 5 mm thick white craft foam.
- Scissors or an X-Acto knife.
- Glue (optional).
How To Make Miniature Christmas Villages For Your Dollhouse:
I recommend using an X-Acto knife if at all possible. Scissors tend to crush the foam, but the X-Acto blade cuts crisp, clean edges.
Also, it’s important to keep the knife straight when you’re cutting; otherwise, the houses won’t stand on their own. A few of my houses bit the dust because I tend to hold mine knife at an angle.
That’s it, friends! You just made miniature Christmas villages to set on your dollhouse shelves or fireplace mantel!
I love this craft because it’s both ridiculously simple and super adorable! The little buildings remind me of the saltbox homes seen in primitive style decor.
I used puffy stickers here because I like the dimension they give, but regular stickers would work too. The key to making them stand on the shelves without help is using thick craft foam.
You can also use stickers to create other dollhouse knickknacks, like cookies. I used Christmas tree and snowflake stickers, tan craft foam, and cardstock to make mini gingerbread and sugar cookies.
Now it’s your turn!
What are your favorite dolly Christmas crafts? Tiny decorations, presents, or sweets?

Anyway, yes, we can most definitely whip out some hot cocoa and coffee mugs (I’m sure Tink would love that😉). There are a ton of Christmas/winter crafts I still want to make, so, even though Christmas is nearly over, I plan to crank out a few more over the next month or so.
