Build your own winter wonderland with our vintage paper board houses from Japan. Often called Putz houses, this group of three houses and a church is a good start towards creating an entire village. Place among greenery, add a few bottle brush trees and you'll have a village scene from long ago.
Popular in the 1950s, these are made from heavy paper board, paint, mica glitter, cellophane for the windows and a loofah tree. Each house has a hole on the back to allow room for lights to be placed inside. The tallest square blue house has a hanging wire on the back so it can be used as an ornament. (Actually you can make them all ornaments if you're crafty)...
- FOUR vintage paper board buildings, or Putz houses (three houses and one church) Made in Japan (as shown)
These little old houses have been used and well-loved. All show surface wear including scuffs, bends, paint loss, edge/corner wear, marks, paint loss and loose mica flakes. The cellophane windows show scattered tearing from age and use (this can be repaired carefully by a crafty person) Stamped JAPAN on the bottom.
- Materials: paper board, paint, mica glitter, cellophane, loofah, wire
