And then I was reading an article in an old Christmas magazine. It was about Putz villages. And it mentioned a magic word.
As in: at one time there were Putz barns. But now they can be hard to find.
I assumed this had to be true, since I had never seen one. And since I had a vacation day, I decided to build one.
To make your own Putz barn, you will need to draw a pattern for the barn and a roof. You will need cardboard, corrugated scrapbook paper, an old box lid for a base, vellum or cellophane for windows, paint, glue, Mod Podge, glass glitter, little bristly things for trees, mercury glass beads for the little bristly things, and a tiny wreath. You also will need pinking shears, scissors, a ruler, paintbrushes and an exacto knife.
Did I mention that you will need a vacation day?
