Little Putz House Display

Monday, December 15, 2014

I have loved the little glitter putz houses for some time now so I finally decided to make some.  I love shopping small businesses so I searched Etsy and found a great assortment of sweet little houses.  They arrived pretty quickly, and she even included a mini wreath which looks adorable on my church!

Luckily, I had lots of glitter on hand, but I made a trip to Michaels for a couple more options since I wasn't sure what they would all look like on cardboard.  

I did pull a few colors other than neutrals and actually used the green.  It looked cute, but I just love simple look without much color so I Mod Podged over the green glitter with silver.  The Martha Stewart glitter is so fab!  After my glitter dried, I cut squares of tracing paper for my windows and hot glued those inside my houses.  The Etsy shop has two options of solid back houses, or she will cut circles if you want to use battery operated tea lights to illuminate your houses.  Obviously, that was my choice! 

I thought about putting them inside apothecary jars, but my little houses only fit it one of the jars that I had on hand so I ran to Home Goods for a tray and incorporated the jars and my tray.  I had some trees on hand, but I found more at Walmart.  

Next year, I'll make more and put them on some shelving in my entry way to make a whole little village.  But for now, I'll enjoy my little glittery tray set up.
Merry Christmas!
