to make your own christmas tree village you will need some basic plywood, a saw, a pencil, and a smile.
the tree stand is made of simple round plywood circles with the center cut out and screwed into place using brackets. they are just stacked on top of one another to get a tiered effect.
make a 2×4 cross section on the bottom with a 4″x4″ in the center.
Spray paint the tiers white and then decorate with garland, fake snow, etc to hide the edges and the legs.
The base size is approximately 5′ in diameter, reducing each additional level approximately 1′ in diameter (5′, 4′, 3′, 2′ & 1′) and 18-24″ in between each layer to ensure room for your village.
Cut a 4″x4″ hole in the very center of each circle, except the smallest one, which is screwed on directly to the top of the 4″x4″
Screw them in place using brackets, make sure they’re level!

Here’s another example of one using faux snow material.

Wow!! What a great idea!! They have little village house pieces at target for just a couple dollars each, I’d like to get a few and paint them like gingerbread houses, except I didn’t know how to display them.
These ideas are wonderful!!
