green and pink two-story putz

I’ve been working on the box of Putz houses I had made a couple of years ago. None of them had window panes, so I put those in first.

After the window panes were in, it was time to add the window and door frames. I started with the little two-story green house with the pink roof and decided to paint them a honey brown color.

I made the fencing to match the trim.

Pinning the fence (and the house) down keeps it in place until I’m ready to hot glue it to the base.

A peek at my work space…I always make a mess, but it’s a satisfying mess!

Added snow…

And decorated trees…

Added some background foliage…

And done.

It’s posted in my Etsy shop – ChristmasNotebook. Along with almost 40 other Putz buildings and several kinds of Christmas ornaments, many made with recycled Christmas cards.

I am making progress on my organizing-the-craft-room project. DH helped me clear out some of the drawers on the east side of the room. I’ve been putting supplies and projects in those drawers, making room in the drawers on the west side for the items I want right at hand. There is a lot to do, but I’ll keep chipping away at it. If you’re interested, click here for pictures of my craft room.

We’re expecting an ice storm, starting tomorrow morning and running through Sunday. If it’s headed for you, find a happy place and hunker down! I’ll be in the craft room…

    I like the way you have the house off-set on the base. It turned out really nice. We are expecting freezing rain tomorrow. It is supposed to warm a little and just turn into rain, but makes for a home bound Saturday none the less, lol. The wood stove will be warm and a pot of soup sounds good :) Hope you will be cozy warm and safe in your home.
