Hi All! Today’s project is a diy mini scrap wood village. This project is perfect for year-round décor, or add to a tiered tray with some fake snow and you now have a cute Christmas scene. These mini block houses are a great way to use up small pieces of scrap wood.

Mini Scrap Wood Village
For this project I used a combination of acrylic and chalk paint because I didn’t have the colors that I wanted to use in one or the other so I used both.
Once you get the mini block houses cut choose your paint colors and start painting each house a different color leaving the roof unpainted. Paint the trees green.
Go back and paint the roofs of the mini houses brown.
Use black for the windows and doors. I went back and changed the door color to brown.
Then used a detail brush to add white around the windows and doors.
For the door knobs I used Metallic gold and a craft stylus.
Once everything was completely dry, I went back and distressed all the edges on the mini scrap wood village.
Next, I added Mod Podge to seal and protect.
After that came the smoke stacks. I used small carpet tacks, and that’s it for this diy mini scrap wood village. Do you save your scrap wood pieces for little projects like this?
