I have been fascinated with Putz Houses ever since I found my first vintage ones here. Somewhere, in the stack of crafting to-do ideas, was the desire to create my own unique Putz Houses.
I finally decided to design a Putz Cabin as a gift.
Sizzix Alterations stamp and die set. It was sturdy yet light. I cut the house frame from thick cardstock.
Glossy Accent to glue the corrugated sides to the house then cut the windows with the Windows die. I added a small piece of clear plastic behind the windows and cut a green door. I also cut a roof layer out of sandpaper but later covered it with Texture Paste. Next time I would leave some of the sandpaper roof showing.
Grunge Paper using the On The Fence die and glued them around the edge of the base leaving an opening for the "walkway". I used white acrylic paint on the fence and sprinkled Clear Distress Glitter while it was still wet.
bottlebrush tree with Pine Needle Distress Stain, rolled the bristles in a small amount of Glossy Accents and sprinkled glitter on the tree. I glued the tree to the base and then applied Texture Paste around the base of the tree and on the "ground" around the cabin. I immediately sprinkled glitter to the base.
This was a fun first Putz Cabin project. This was a gift for a friend but I might make it a yearly tradition to create different Putz Houses for the holidays.
