blue and yellow putz church

This Putz church is the second one I made from this pattern. I drew the pattern with inspiration from a photograph of a vintage Putz church. You can see the first church here: Yellow and Green Putz Church

This church features a metal, free-swinging bell in the bell tower, two bottle brush trees and a miniature deer.

I made the wreath from a piece of wired chenille. The chenille stem is about 1/2″ wide. I trimmed it back to 1/4″. The bow is made with a piece of tiny wired cord.

I love the color combination on this card.

The tiny deer in the church yard is 3/4″ tall.

    I have followed your website forever it seems. Just love all of your garden and Christmas posts and progress on your house renovations. Check on it every few months. Love especially your Putz Houses and shadowboxes. Have collected Christmas cards for several years and finally got them from attic and am going through them. I’d love to send the fronts to you for whatever you can use. I hope size doesn’t matter. If you can give me your mailing address, I’ll get them off this week. Love seeing what you can do with them. No website yet but I am on Facebook. I live on Eastern Shore of Maryland. Thanks for sharing your work. Truly inspiring.
