In my most recent display I added fairy lights purchased from Amazon. I simply cut small holes in the back using an x-acto knife and inserted the tiny lights.
Diane Lachenmeier just shared her Ledge Village on the Circuit Design Space Facebook group. I love how she used the colors but kept a black accent on every building. It is a great design element. I think another option might be to do all the buildings in brown kraft colored card stock with the black accents.
Debra Barrow of Herman Miller in Zeeland, MI sent this photo to me of her Ledge Village. . She commented, "We have a stairway in our office that we decorated with Ledge houses over Christmas. The base of the stairs is an I-beam painted black which gave a perfect spot to ground the houses, we only had to figure out how to deal with the angle on the stair treads. We filled the base with fluffy “snow” (quilt batting) which worked perfectly. The ledge houses were a big hit, made for a festive decoration for the holiday."
Displays created by others.....
Jennifer McArthur from Pickled Cherry Paper arranged Ledge Village on a round mirror. Special details included the fence around the outside and the tiny punched snowflakes. Beautiful!
Mary Lynnes from Illinois recently sent along this photo of the village she has created above her kitchen cabinets. I love that she has add touches of green ivy nestled among the buildings.
Mary Lynne found the perfect ledge for a Ledge Village display above her entry door.
Mhairi Hastings added a skating pond to her interpretation of Ledge Village.
Jodi Stephens Lombardo made both my Ledge Village (top) and Tea Light Village (bottom) and added fairy lights and snow. I have just learned about Fairy lights. I always used LED tea lights but I love the fairy lights and will try them in some of my new designs.
Ledge Village Displays in my home....
Here is a village lined up on a window ledge. I like when the sun shines through.
Here is a village on a door frame. This is in my craft room which has denim blue walls.
Here is a grouping on a floating shelf .
And my entire village is on display on a ledge in my Sunroom. It is too wide to photograph so here is a video.
