Step 1: Cable Cars

Let’s start by drawing a pattern taking it from the Internet or drawing it.

I chose to draw it. It has to be cut.

Step 2:

Make holes to create windows.

Step 3:

Using red canson copy the pattern 25 times for the 25 days of Advent. You have to cut them. Glue each cable cars.

Decorate them with Christmas motif tape. Then print with each of Advent day; stick them.

Step 5:

With small iron wire, form hooks ( explanation on the photo above for the cable cars to be on the cable).

Step 6:

Step 7: The Snow Carpet

For the decor, make a snow carpet with cotton. Stick the cotton on flexible paper ( newspaper ).

Step 8: Poles

Once all the cabins are made, make the poles. Form a roll with stiff paper. Draw a strait line and make 2 holes to let the iron wire pass.

Step 9:

In a shoebox plant the pole by making a hole. It was to be quite rigid to support all the cable cars on the cable.

Step 10:

Cover the piece of furniture and the shoebox and all other furniture you want to havewith the snow mat.

Step 11:

Repeat the step 8 in another place in the box.
