Putz House & Tie Skirt

Since all the decorating is done,
 I have been having a bit of fun. 

I have always wanted to make a cute little paper house. In doing research on them, I found out the name of these sweet houses are putz houses.

I googled them and came across a pattern to use. I used this pattern...

I think it came out so cute and was a fun little glitter project.

Here is a great website with all the templates to make your very own putz house. http://www.bigindoortrains.com/primer/glitterhouses/small_glitterhouse/beginning_glitterhouse.htm
On to the next project...
I thought that my LampShade Tree needed a tree skirt.
 So I went though hubby's old ties and made this skirt.

  1. Oh my! I had an entire village of tiny paper buildings when I was a little girl. I loved arranging and re-arranging them. I didn't know they had a name. Thank you for bringing back this childhood memory!

  2. Oh, what a great job you did on your little putz house! I saw some last year and just fell in love with them and this summer I started making them! If you'd like to see them I have this posted on my blog today! I've filled up my hutch with them.
    Now your little tie tree skirt is so cute too.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  3. Those are so cute. I remember my grandma had some of those houses. And the tie tree skirt is VERY creative. When I look at other's blogs, my mind goes wild with imagination!!! HA! One more project, I guess. Happy Holidays!

  4. Oh, the cleverness and creativity of Bloggers just never ceases to amaze me! Terry, this is just adorable and so doggone clever!

  5. That lampshade tree is so cute! I love the tree skirt! What fun!

    Have a blessed and Merry Christmas!


  6. I am so glad you s=decided on this post on the putz house. I have been racking my brain for the name of these decorations. I love yours and will freely admit i am pinning this before I forget again!

  7. I am so glad you decided to post on the putz house and provided a pattern. I have been racking my brain trying to think of the name of these decorations. I am pinning this before I forget again! Yours is lovely - so well-displayed.

  8. I've never seen little paper houses before, but wow, yours is gorgeous! I have to pin this so I can look into it more. I think it is something I'd love to try. Oh, and your 'tie' skirt is so unique and very cool!
    Saw you sharing at Diamond in the Stuff
    Debbie :)
