Valentine putz house

I used a cardboard, candy box to make this ORIGINAL size, Valentine Putz house.

The base is made from an upcycled greeting card. It measures 5 1/2″ wide x 5″ deep. The Putz is 4″ tall as measured from the bottom of the base to the top of the roof.

The back of the Putz has the traditional hole that allows for the use of an LED light string for lighting the house.

The house is made from a heart-shaped, cardboard, candy box. After the parts were painted and the window panes installed, I glued the two pieces together.

The wooden picket fence is handcrafted from stir sticks and slivered popsicle sticks. I make a bunch of these ahead of time so I have them ready when a house needs a picket fence.

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