WARNING: This post contains tons of pictures!
I inherited several pieces of a Christmas village from my parents. Big houses that light up and little villagers and it was cute but being a person who has to constantly change things around, I got tired of it and spray painted it white and added glitter last year. I liked it and it gave it a whole new look.
But, I decided to go in a much darker direction this year and use it for Halloween.
I painted the buildings and people black and added some yellow to the window panes to make a Halloween town. I set it up on a black vinyl tablecloth and added some moss and orange lights. Instead of using the white lights that came with the buildings, I pushed some of the orange lights inside to give it more of a Halloween feel. I added my Happy Halloween wooden blocks.
It’s quite spooky with the lights out.I love how the people and places have changed from pleasant and cheerful to frightful and eerie just with a change of color.
My original plan was to add a graveyard and some spooky trees and really go all out but I have gotten sidetracked every time I try to start so I have decided that I will leave it as is and just add to it each year. Unless, of course, I end up painting them again!
