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 it didn’t have red on it and that was the obvious choice for the schoolhouse, so I decided to go with this one instead. A small wintery village, with just enough red to coordinate with the schoolhouse.

I use greeting cards to make the bases for all my Putz houses. When lifted there’s a sweet surprise underneath.

Putz houses look alive when the lights come on. I use tiny LED light strings to light my Putz houses. The two larger bottle brush trees are decorated with gold and green pearl beads, faux snow and iridescent glitter.

The tiny deer is only 1/2″ tall.
