One more Christmas House

Please join me on my new blog - paperglitterglue.com where this project is included with more already added. Thank you. I hope to see you there.

I finished my last Christmas glitter house on December 31st for a co-worker who is moving to live closer to her family. She admired one of the other Christmas houses so I made a very similar one for her as a going away present.

This is an original pattern that I drew that is pretty easy to cut out. I think it makes a lovely little house based on old fashioned putz houses. I found some embellishments that worked well on the gables to look like victorian gingerbread decorations.

I like the contrast of the pink and green. And I especially like the striped green paper. It looks very Christmasy to me. The pink of the roof has a bit too much salmon color, but not enough to bother me much. I did a better job embossing the snowflakes and highlighting them with Picket Fence distress paint.

I also added the pink embellishments on the side gables. Just another fun detail.

Here you can see the traditional hole for the light in the back on putz houses. Now days I think most people use tiny strings of LED lights to light up their putz houses.

I am entering this one in a Vintage Journey December challenge called "Winter Magic". The Christmas glitter house with the snowflake roof fits in nicely with the Winter Magic theme.


  1. This house is really nice! I like the pink and green color combination! You should try a red and aqua combo some time!

  2. You are right! Red and aqua would be a great color combination.
