original size, honey yellow and blue, winter putz house

I haven’t made many winter houses lately. It’s fun to get back into that season. I used the same pattern (020824) for this house as the summer one I just finished. I added two windows above the door, and used a long chimney on the left side, rather than a small chimney on the roof.

This summer house was made recently from the same pattern.

The base is made from an upcycled Christmas card, featuring a winter’s eve village. Gold foil highlights the windows on the card. The base measures 6 1/4″ wide by 4 1/8″ deep. The house is 5 1/4″ tall as measured from the bottom of the base to the top of the chimney.

The house has a hole in the back that allows the use of a small LED light string for lighting the Putz.

A tiny snowman greets visitors and a handcrafted wreath hangs on each side of the house.

A puff of smoke is tucked into the chimney, and is easily removed if not needed.

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