original size autumn putz church in gray and yellow

The gray Thanksgiving / Autumn church is listed in my Etsy shop. It has a deep yellow roof and steeple. The Putz features a handcrafted autumn tree, four handcrafted pumpkins, a surrounding autumn hedge and a vine growing over the church roof. The base is made from an upcycled greeting card which features a beautiful wooded autumn scene.

A hole in the back allows the use of a small LED light string for lighting this and other glitter houses in your glitter house village.

The autumn details are abudant. An autumn hedge surrounds the church yard. I handcrafted the colorful fall tree, using an armature and sponge foliage. Tiny fallen leaves are sprinkled across the church yard.

Three steps lead up to the arched front door. There are four handcrafted pumpkins in the yard. Tiny paper flowers grow among the hedges. Three round windows are covered with flattened, metal bead caps.

Stroll through the church yard and enjoy the autumn scenery. The vine that covers the roof is made from brown paper-covered wire and beaded ivory pips.

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