"These adorable little clay houses are fun to make and are made from salt dough! Salt dough houses are great for all sorts of holidays, but we are going to show you how to make a Christmas Village Shadowbox with them as well. Have you ever made salt dough? I’d be really surprised if you haven’t. I guarantee that you have all the ingredients in your pantry right now. Super easy and so fun! You can use these little houses in many different ways. Change the colors for different holidays, paint the roofs like toadstools for a little fairy village, or make a Christmas village like we are going to do today."
