I am craving all things simple and minimal this holiday season. See my previous post where I show the beginnings of my holiday decor with Scandinavian style accents. In that post, you will see my sweet cozy white Nordic Christmas village display. It came out so soft and serene. 

I got those fun paper houses from Oriental Trading! I painted them with white paint and to go one step further, I covered them with fuzzy white fleece fabric. Here is the tutorial that shows the steps I took to get the look! Let’s get started.

Paint houses with white acrylic paint. Let the paint dry thoroughly.

Lay the fabric over each section of the house to be covered with fabric and cut a matching piece with sharp scissors. Lay the piece over the house section and mark where the windows will be with a pen.

Note: As you can see in the pics I chose to add the fabric to the houses and then cut out the windows. Do not do this. Your windows will come out much neater if you mark them with a pen and cut them out with a rotary cutter or sharp scissors before adding the fabric to the houses with adhesive

Cut the window sections out with an X-Acto knife, scissors or rotary cutter. Paint section of the house with glue. Lay the fabric over it and smooth it out. Repeat with all sides.
