I love love love tiny little houses sprinkled (okay, dumped) with chunky glitter and lovely pretty sparkly things for Christmas. Some point over the last few years, I realized the little houses I was loving so much for my holiday decor were called “putz” houses or dime store Christmas Villages. These were largely handmade items – so hey, why can't we handmake them now, over 100 years after they first started appearing?
I created several different styles of these houses by hand using paint, chipboard, glitter, and new and vintage trimmings. Each one has its own unique charatcer!
I love the little sequins on the bottom of this one…
The little wreaths on this one are super fun!
I like this fur one…it feels like a cottage from Iceland!
This is one of the originals I made — I hand painted all the doors and windows on and added these adorable mini sisal bottlebrush Christmas trees to it:
Put them all together to create a Christmas village tree!
Thanks for stopping by!

Yo have got your Christmas game on-these are adorable. I checked out the store and fell in love with the Tussie Mussies!
