You don’t need a cutting machine to decorate this wood Christmas village with adhesive vinyl!
I love my Silhouette Cameo machine but sometimes I don’t want to pull it out to make something.
At Target the other week I gravitated towards some wood houses in the Dollar Spot and figured they’d be fun to put adhesive vinyl on.
And boy was I right!
This wood Christmas village with adhesive vinyl took me 20 minutes to do (maybe less if I’m honest) and added so much glitter and shine to my shelves for the holidays!
What I love most about this project is that it doesn’t have to be perfect. If you look closely you can see little bits of the vinyl left behind in the windows but from a distance its not noticeable.
I probably could’ve gone back with my exacto-knife and removed the pieces if I wanted to, but I didn’t. You can if you want….it’s up to you!
What you need to make this wood Christmas village with adhesive vinyl:
- Wood houses from the Target Dollar Spot
- Adhesive Vinyl (mine is from the November Mystery Box)

What type of exacto-knife do I need for this project?
I have the fiskars exacto knife and it’s what I used in the video for this post too!
I love it and use it for a lot of projects. I’d also suggest getting a self healing cutting mat to put underneath so that you don’t accidentally cut your table!
What type of vinyl can I use on the wood houses?
I subscribed to the Expressions Vinyl Mystery Box and all of the vinyl I used for this project came from the November Mystery Box.
How do you cut out the windows?
I pushed my finger down on the vinyl to find where the windows were. Then I used my exacto knife to cut out each window.
Sometimes I had to go back and cut off excess pieces I left behind but sometimes I just just left it.
All I had to do was push the vinyl back into the window. It’s not noticeable from far away!
