Santas Village

I have been wanting to share these for ages, they are up on the Bo Bunny blog today so finally I can
Santa's Village by Tracee Provis

What better way to decorate for Christmas than something you have created yourself. I love to create scenes and was really excited to see the cute elements that adorn the Elf Magic collection. I recycled some old tuna fish cans that made great bases for my ornaments, and finished them off with some paper bows and ribbon.

To start I sprayed my tin with some white auto paint, glittered one of the small doilies and cut out the middle to make a pretty edge for my tins. I fussy cut lots of different elements from the papers and used hot glue to adhere in the tin. A little tip - I needed to put some hot glue that would show at the front of my elements, to stop it from being a plain old blob I just sprinkled a little glitter on it before it dried and it looks like sparkly snow.

I cut some circles to fit the tin and then adhered most of the elements to it before gluing inside. I used some double dot cardstock to create the Elf factory building, how cute is the little one peeking out from behind the wall?. I cut some tiny bows to stick on the presents and then cut a bigger version that is attached to the top of the tin with the ribbon.

The set wouldn't be complete without the stockings being hung, again I used double dot to create the bed frame and the window behind has acetate to give the impression of Santa's sleigh flying through the sky.


  1. Goodness me! These are so awesome!! I'm going to start collecting tuna tins for sure???
