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 I can get right to putzing when I begin a new house.

The metal cover over the round window is a flattened bead cap.

The base is made from an upcycled Christmas card.

The colors on the Christmas card dictated the colors I used on the Putz house.

The bottle brush trees are decorated with pearl beads, mother-of-pearl stars, faux snow and iridescent glitter.

It’s a cozy, winter evening and the house is ready for company!

I used the same pattern to make this tiny-mini Putz house.

And this tiny-mini, as well. It always surprises me how much difference just the color can make in how the house looks.

I am always happy to answer questions about the process. Please ask, if you are wondering about the details of putzing!
