DIY Wood Scrap Houses

Turn scrap wood into the cutest little christmas villages.

I love taking old scrap from the farmhouse and turning it into decor. There is something amazing about taking junk and turning it into home decor that makes me so happy. You can do this too for decor for your home, as a fun craft with kids, or even a fun craft night! These are so easy. 

Things you will need to DIY:

Scrap wood cut to have fun angled roofs

Flat head nails for chimneys

Paint, We recommend using DIY Paint it's clay based and no VOCs so you can use it indoors and not get lightheaded. It just smells like clay! You can buy some here:

Paint Brush, Use Paint Pixie brushes for a high quality reusable brush.

JRV Stencils are made to last! They are 15 ml thick and made here in the USA. You can clean them easily with soap and water as long as you use DIY Paint. If you use other paints we suggest cleaning them immediately after using. The designs are created by Jami Ray. Shop the stencils here:

JRV Stencil Brushes are made by Paint Pixie and are high quality, reusable brushes. Buy them here:

Love your items and the prices are not bad. Wish I lived closer to your shop so I could go shopping there. Ty I’ll be back when I can browse online.
