They have similar this year but you could also look for Christmas village houses and spray paint them white

Please pay attention to the bold blue links in this post for more Homeroad information and the products I used for this project. 

All I needed to give these cute house a new look that goes with my decor is a little black craft paint

  1. Your little houses look fantastic! Love them. I love all little houses - wooden ones, rustic ones, plastic ones (think Dollar stores) bisque, porcelain.............) Love the wooden houses made from slabs of wood and 2/4s, 4x4s, etc.

  2. These are great, Susan! I love the simplicity and the glow of the light. Perfect for your new room!

  3. These houses look so much better with the black roof! Brilliant idea to paint them.
    Merry Christmas,

  4. Love how you made these cute Target houses even cuter! They do look more finished with the roofs painted.
