Little Glitter Houses

This is my current obsession right now. Little glitter
houses aka 'putz houses'. I've noticed them at a lot of
antique stores right now and they are usually pretty
pricey and in bad condition. I really love the look of
them and I want to make some myself. I looked up the history
of them and apparently people started making them around
the beginning of the 20th century to put around the Christmas
tree or nativity. The Japanese popularized them around
mid-century, after the war. I think they are so cute! I'm
going to make a couple to leave up all year around in my
craft room.
