snow angel putz house

The pattern for this Putz was drawn with inspiration from the house pictured on the Christmas card that I used to make the base. The card features a snowy front yard, perfect for making snow angels. To make the snow angels for the Putz house, I used a thin nail file, cut straight across on […]

mini putz church in green and grey

This MINI Putz church is made from a pattern I drew in January of 2012. I’ve made a couple from that pattern in the last few weeks. This MINI version is the latest. The vintage-style card was very inspiring. I love the greens and blues on the card. I like to use greeting cards to […]

latest putz houses

I’ve made several new Putz houses and churches since my last post. Four of these are TINY MINIs which are the smallest size I make. They are made at 50% of the original pattern size. There’s one MINI (75% of the original) and one ORIGINAL pattern size (100% of the original pattern). This tiny red […]

tiny-mini putz house

This Putz house is made from the same pattern I used for the Putz featured in the previous blog post. That one was done in the MINI size. This one is done in the TINY MINI size, which means the original pattern was copied at 50% of its original size. This makes a very small […]

mini gold, green and red putz house

This MINI Putz house has been listed in my Etsy shop. It is the middle size of Putz that I make. I make TINY MINI, MINI, AND ORIGINAL. The four bottle brush trees were painted white, dusted with fine clear glitter, then dabbed with faux snow. While the snow was wet, they were sprinkled with […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Christmas card putz houses

Putz houses, also called “glitter houses,” are little houses that make up a Christmas village. Popular from the 1920s on, they can be made from cardboard, card stock, and even old Christmas cards. I drew the pattern for this house based on the pattern for the Stone Cottage on the Little Glitter House site, which […]
