Heidi Swapp DIY Holiday Village

Glitter and Christmas seem to go hand in hand, but glitter can be a real mess. Right? That’s why I was so excited to use Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Kiss on the adorable Heidi Swapp Holiday Village.


Each piece is sold separately so you can customize your village however you want.


I started with the Holiday Village Kraft Church, which comes flat so it’s easy to decorate and there are these great adhesive tabs so it’s a snap to put together. No glue needed!

I used a small paintbrush to apply Cosmic Shimmer Sahara Gold Glitter Kiss around the door and window pains. I used Cosmic Shimmer Silver Chrome Glitter Kiss for the roof.

For the larger areas I used the handy Glitter Kiss sponge applicator.

For the trees I used Cosmic Shimmer Sea Green Glitter Kiss or Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Kiss Hunter Green, alternating colors for each tree that came with a house. The Glitter Kiss dries quickly, so it didn’t take long before I was able to add Mixed Media Effect Snow to the edges.

For added sparkle and a gingerbread look, I placed Twilight Jewels Scrapbooking Dazzles™ Stickers along the roof edges and windows of the Large Kraft House.

The Small Kraft Chimney Cottage is adorable!

The Small Kraft Cottage is so tiny and cute!


The vellum windows look so pretty when battery tea lights are placed inside each house.

For a different look Susan decorated the roof and base of a Medium Kraft House with Christmas Cabin Paper Pack and Scrapbooking Dazzles™ Stickers and Mixed Media Effect Snow.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope you found some inspiration for your holiday decorating. Happy crafting.

    HO! how cute, this will be perfect for me and my nieces & nephews when they visit Thanksgiving. We always do crafts when they come to my house and I see this keeping them busy for a while. Thanks so much for sharing.
