The Pleasant Times' Printable Christmas Village

2022 Note: I was getting a lot of requests for access to the files ("request to view" in Google Drive or Docs).  No matter how I updated the settings I still had to manually approve many people. Therefore for this year I have moved the PDF to a new hosting platform so the updated links will take you there. It is still FREE and should be accessible to you all 24/7 without waiting on me to approve you!

I hope The Pleasant Times' readers have enjoyed their free printable Christmas village!

You can make these as elaborate (by adding lots of glitter and cut-out pieces) or as simple as you please. They are also good to print out to keep little hands busy while you are wrapping presents or finishing up a project!

Here is the master list of links to each printable PDF, and a link to each blog post if you would like to see photos of how they look all made up.

Mountain Background for the village was added here. See bottom of post for picture!

Here are some ideas of how to display your Christmas Village.
You can line them up all in a row on a shelf, mantel, or the window-sill (or two!);
you can put each section on different shelves in a bookshelf, and pretend they are different "streets:" a street of houses, a village street, and the country road;
 or you can scatter them around the room for interest.

I put a short string of Christmas tree lights behind mine; you can also put the LED plastic tea lights behind each one to make a glow.

When you are done with them for the season, you can fold them flat and put them in an envelope for next year. Or, you can cut out the centers and glue them on next year's Christmas cards!

Thanks for visiting! Merry Christmas!

You can now print out a mountain scene to put behind the village.
