    i’m impressed with what you’ve done with the free patterns, plans and instructions you found on my site…and on http://www.bigindoortrains.com

    you did everything right…especially your own personal touches…now you have got to make some Easter and Halloween theme pieces…same patterns…just different colors…

    couldn’t help but notice…those led votive lights in baby bottle nipples?…

    my very best regards…Howard

    So impressive! I’ve always loved these and am especially into the idea of making my own. I found the great info on Big Indoor Trains but just have never gotten my you-know-what together. You’ve inspired me! Beautiful job!

    These are fabulous!!! I was going to make my own set. But I ended up finding some on clearance last year. But I still think it would be fun to make some. You did a fantastic job.

    I saw this on Tatertots and Jello and was blown away! This project is absolutely stunning and I had to pop over and tell you so. What a beautiful project and I love every thing about it. It’s hard to believe something so beautiful started from humble beginnings.

    Thank you SO much for sharing. I’ve bookmarked this page and the links you provided. I would love to try this for myself (not sure if I can make it work, but the resources are saved).

    Merry Christmas!

    I am absolutely in LOVE with these little houses. I wanted some vintage ones but they are hard to find. Making them out of cereal boxes is the perfect solution. I’ll get started on my village for next year! Thanks so much for sharing. Happy Holidays!

    Do you ever just want to pat yourself on the back? You did amazingly wonderful! No wonder you were so excited to dig them out of the box and set them up. As a child we had these on our tree and they were always my favorite. So glad I found these thanks for sharing and providing us with Howard’s link with info. Did not know they were called Putz houses.
    We used to live in Ottawa but in order to be closer to family we decided to move and now live in Saint John, NB.
    Again, excellent work!
    Love, Peace & Joy!

    I absolutely love these. I have a few houses (not Putz) that I have bought, but I am determined to make many of these for next season. I am saving your tutorial. I hope mine look as good as yours. Thanks for sharing.

    I’ve spent a fortune at the Home Goods Store buying houses that look very much like yours. The houses I bought were just cardboard with paint and glitter and snow. I think I’ll try to make some too and save mega bucks. Thanks for posting this for us.

    Beautiful! Several yrs. ago my husband made miniature versions of the old Hereford depot, barns, stalls, and other landmarks in our town fr. matchboxes and cereal boxes. They were so well-made and realistic-looking that I share them with the 3rd gr. classes when they make their own villages for Social Studies. Your little houses reminded me of his “town”and farm. Keep up the good work. You are so talented!
