Kay Shell from Orchardville Church in Xenia, IL brings us this Christmas village.
They wanted to create a warm, old-fashioned, “homey” feel for their Christmas stage design. The “log cabin” was framed with simple 1″x1″‘s and the “siding” was large sheets of cardboard painted with some dark beige paint they had in storage and white “chinking”. The trees were cut from the woods behind their church, along with the “split rail fence”. The snow was just white tablecloths and/or leftover white gossamer ordered from a Stumps Prom online website. Many families used the stage design as a backdrop for family photos during the holiday season.
