Mini Christmas houses are a staple holiday decoration so I decided to use these tiny houses to make a light garland. This holiday craft merges two things in one attractive package that can be used in various merry settings. Made from foam sheets, the Christmas tiny house light garland is lightweight and can be displayed all year round.
Although this DIY Christmas craft took a lot of time and some serious elbow grease, looking at the result, the effort was so worth it. You can make it a family fun activity this season but start early as it will take you some time. Let’s see how to make a Christmas tiny house light garland.
- White foam sheets
- String Lights
- Craft Knife
- Hot Glue Gun
How to Make Tiny House Light Garland for Christmas
- Draw tiny houses on white foam paper. Make two sides with doors and two identical windows. I drew two 2×2-inch windows and two 3×2-inch door frames with one inch tapering upward
- Cut the outlines with opening shafts to mimic window and door frames
- Then glue the sides together
- Next, I cut two pieces of 2.5×2.5-inch for the roof, one of which is glued on top of the house, while the other side is left empty
- Then I strung the light inside through the empty part of the roof and glued the remaining piece
- Make as many houses as you want and string the lights using the same process
- You may want to add a thread or jute twine along the houses so when you hang the garland, the weight won’t fall on the light string
There you go! Your DIY Tiny House Light Garland is ready to dazzle your holiday season decorations. You can use it over doorframes, windows, fireplace mantels, or as tabletop décor. Check out the video below and let me know what you think.
