Tips for creating the perfect winter landscape

Some people build ornate and impressive winter landscapes and Christmas villages with hundreds of buildings, vehicles, little people, animals, trains, and other decorations. All of these are available in most decoration stores during the Advent season, but they all cost a fortune. Fortunately, there is a great alternative to the traditional building method that won’t break the bank and also look totally unique – DIY projects.

For many hobbyists, such mini landscapes are much more than just a hobby

For example, instead of buying professionally made hills and other landscapes, you can make them yourself incredibly easily. All you have to do is stack a few books on a table or other display area you want, cover them with a white tablecloth, and then drape some snow floss over them. This way, your table will look exactly like it was completely covered in snow.

To make roads and paths, cut long curved strips of paper or felt and place them over your mounds. When it comes to trees, you are truly spoiled for choice. You can DIY fir trees tinker either out of cardboard, pipe cleaners, craft foam or even wood. Most hobbyists, however, prefer to purchase fluffy wire trees from the craft store because they are reusable and quite affordable.

Now comes the really fun part. Once you’re happy with the foundation of your winter landscape, it’s time to add some details. Houses are really easy to build for an experienced hobbyist. here For example, you will find a very easy tutorial for salt dough houses. Even small birdhouses can be used for your winter landscape.

Animal, human and vehicle figures then really bring your winter landscape to life. However, they are much more difficult to tinker with. So better to rely on your nearest toy or craft stores. Experienced hobbyists can of course also create these with polymer clay or just with paper cut-outs.

To add the finishing touch to your winter landscape, add a few fairy lights and maybe even a pretty background. You can print a winter scene of your choice on a large piece of paper, or even paint it yourself and then place it behind the landscape. That way, your finished project will look a lot bigger and more awesome.

Tinker upcycled gift packaging with a winter landscape

The following guide and a much simpler and equally impressive method for winter landscape crafts. You not only create a cool festive decoration, but also surprise your recipient with unique gift packaging. He hardly wants to take it apart anymore. For this craft project you will need a large paper bag, colorful wrapping paper, white acrylic paint, a small figure and of course your present.

First, cut open your pocket so that you have a large rectangular piece of paper in front of you. Draw several small fir trees in the middle, then use a craft knife to cut them out so that the stumps are still intact.

Once you are happy with the number of trees, wrap your gift in the wrapping paper first, then the brown paper again. Gently lift your trees and fold them along the base of the stumps to set them up. Finally, dip your character’s feet in white paint, stamp a few traces on the paper, and then glue them in place.

What a lovely gift box, isn’t it?
