Indoor Christmas snow scenes bring the chilly magic of the season right into your home. They add sparkle and glitter and make the holiday brighter. Creating Christmas snow scenes can easily be turned into a family adventure. You can use your project as a Christmas window decoration, or as a corner decoration to lighten a dull or dark area. Other great places to put lighted Christmas decorations are on a shelf in the middle of the library, above kitchen cabinets, in a China cabinet or under the Christmas tree.
Creating Snow Scenes
When you make Christmas snow scenes, be careful not to place anything flammable, such as Christmas bulbs and miniature lights, on or under faux snow. To avoid overheating bulbs or faux-snow fires, use miniature figurines, village houses and streetlights that have enclosed bulbs, or miniature light sets that are battery operated.
The best way to build a scene is to start with a couple of lighted village houses that are anywhere from 10 inches to 15 inches high. Because these houses are lit from within and the light bulb is contained, it can't get hot enough to burn anything. The design of these houses allows the light to spill out through openings, which lights up the entire area.
To create height, start by placing several books haphazardly on a shelf. Then drape faux snow carefully over the books. Once the faux snow has been draped over the books, it will transform the shelf into a snowy meadow filled with dips and valleys.
Take advantage of the lay of the land and place the lighted houses in areas that will display them best. If a house or church looks best on a hill created by several books stacked atop one another, place several books under the fake snow and then set the house in place carefully. Always make sure you use a large enough book for the size of house and other items you wish to display. Check your display periodically throughout the season; shelves will shake when people walk by or shut doors, which can cause the houses to fall.
