putz display

I have been working on my Putz houses this week and they are coming along well. I’ve really enjoyed to the work.

tiered display

I just threw these on the tiered cupcake holder to give you an idea of what I have in mind. This is no where near the final look I’m going for. The stand has six tiers. I’m planning to use four.

I have 13 Putz houses in some degree of construction. Some of the ones pictured do not have window frames yet. All need bases. And I want to put embellishments on some…wreaths, snowmen, etc. Also, I need to put “snow” on the bottle brush trees.

The finished display will have snow batting, more bottle brush trees, and lots of icicles hanging from the edge of the plates. I have a picture of something similar in my Christmas idea binder that I pulled from a magazine several years ago. I’m trying to duplicate that in some fashion.

This will probably be displayed on the kitchen counter…or perhaps in the guest room. Not sure yet where it will end up.

Lots of work yet to do, but it has to be pushed to the back burner for a few days. Last night I came down with a leg infection (a recurring problem) and now I’m confined to the recliner to elevate my leg for several days. I felt awfully sick last night. Some better today, but the lower part of my left leg is swollen, red, and hot. Not good. Am taking antibiotics and should be on the road to recovery in a few days. For now, I’m grateful for my laptop! And am watching a lot of TV.
