I have a slight obsession with little Christmas houses. Today, we’re looking back at all of the creative ways I’ve incorporated these little houses into my Christmas decor over the years (including some easy DIYs). I also scoured the world to find my favorite little Christmas houses decorating ideas and I think they are going to knock your socks off! I made sure to update this post with sources for finding your own little houses too.

Have you ever read the book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie? The little mouse asks for a cookie which leads to him wanting a glass of milk which means he needs a straw then a mirror to avoid a milk mustache and on and on and on.
Just like that little mouse, my first little Christmas house DIY led to me creating many more over the years.
This is my latest little house creation and I couldn’t love it more!
