making putz bases

I continue to work on my box of Putz houses. I put window panes in them and made window and door frames for some of them. I’ll finish that part of the project tomorrow. Yesterday (Friday) I spent my craft time making bases for the little houses. I scoured my Christmas card collection to find […]

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 […]

soup and putz

Our weather has been cold and windy. I made chicken tortellini soup this morning and put four quarts into the fridge. We’ll be set for a few days. I find soup comforting when the weather is bitter. I have a box of Putz houses that I made a few years ago. Today I got them […]

sorority putz

Youngest Daughter started college this fall and one of the groups she joined is the sorority Sigma Delta Tau. For Christmas, I made a little sorority Putz house for her. It was fun to make. I googled the sorority and clicked on IMAGES. I found their crest, a paddle and a sign that I copied, […]

turquoise and dark red putz house

I saw a little Putz house online and decided to draw a pattern for it. Mine looks nothing like the one I saw, though there are similarities in the house design. I did move the chimney and changed its design a bit. My house…with the lights on… A rather simple design. Classic, though, and that’s […]

santa’s Christmas tree farm

My last Christmas Tree Lot sold quickly. I am happy to say it went to a very good home. Someone I know who will enjoy it for many years. So today I began a new tree lot. This one has a different style of building. This is how far I got on Day 1. I […]

noel farms Christmas tree lot

I have been working on this little Putz Christmas Tree Lot for a few days. Finished it today. This is much like the two I’ve made before, but I try to make each one a little different from the others. This one has lights, which is a first. Also a snowman, rather than a mailbox. […]

green putz with copper embellishments

I finished this little house today. I like the color combination. The embellishments are copper colored. The base is 5 1/4″ wide and 3 3/4″ deep. The Putz measures 5 1/2″ tall, from the bottom of the base to the top of the foliage. A tiny brown, glass bead serves as a door knob. The […]

custom order putz village

My first custom order. I made it for a local friend. She wanted gray and yellow and no green to match a particular room in her home. It was the biggest Putz project I have undertaken. Here is a close-up of the first little house. And the church. And the other little house. Top view. […]
