When I was young, my favorite Christmas decoration was the traditional miniature village. It became real when we plugged in the lights that shined through the colored cellophane windows of the little cardboard houses. They were placed on the glittered sheet of cotton with bottle brush trees and hanging around “town” you would find a spun cotton snowman, a three legged Putz sheep and pine cone elves. That inspired me to make these guys. Maybe your village could use a new pine cone elf?
