toy store putz

I have been wanting to make a toy store Putz since January. Yesterday, I finally got around to it. I drew the pattern, then cut and constructed the Putz. I had the embellishments in my stash, so it was easy to put together. The base measures 6 3/8″ wide x 3 1/2″ deep. The Putz […]

tiny mini schoolhouse and neighbors combination putz

The little bitties are fun to make. Because they are so small, I can put two on a base for a little village scene. This is the one I just finished. Or a country scene like this one with a farm house and a tiny barn. It was the first combo I made. The second […]

putz with a picket fence

I have made several MINI and TINY MINI Putz houses lately, so I went back to an ORIGINAL size this time. The base has a beautiful picket fence on it. I used colors from the Christmas card to paint the Putz house. The card on the base has a large wreath, so I added two […]

orange and grey putz house

I woke up early this morning and started on this Putz house. I cut the pattern from poster board, added window panes, painted and assembled it in about four hours. I didn’t know I could make one that quickly. I did have the base ready beforehand. I keep a box of bases already made, so […]

mini putz church

I drew the pattern for this little Putz church with inspiration from a vintage Christmas postcard that I saw online. When I make a Putz church, I like to use a nativity card for the base. This one inspired the use of yellow and red on the church building. I chose a darker red than […]

schoolhouse putz

I finished this schoolhouse this weekend. It’s listed in my Etsy shop. The card I used for the base features a little school building and snowy day activities. When one of my Putz houses is tilted, the card is a little surprise on the bottom. I try to coordinate the colors on the card and […]

tiny mini grey and red putz house

I just finished this tiny, pale grey Putz house. It sits at an angle to the side with a curved walk to the front door. The colors of the Putz are inspired by the Christmas card I used as the base. I picked up on the grey and red. The picture on the card shows […]

mini schoolhouse

I finished this mini schoolhouse yesterday. I probably would have put a green roof on it if I hadn’t wanted to use colors from the Christmas card I used to make the base. After it was finished, I was very happy with the roof color. I had chosen a different card for the base, but […]
