DIY · With Popsicle sticks

Popsicle stick house

Woodcraft is one of my favorite …

You can make pencil holders, picture frames, storage boxes, bowls, table lamp and several houses. But today I will show you how easily you can make a small house. For this construction you will need around 100 Popsicle sticks and 45 toothpicks. The basic idea is to create four squares, which will be the “base” for our house.

The rear wall:

The procedure is: Put 12 sticks horizontally one below the other and glue stick one left and one right on the edges. In this way you create the rear wall.

The walls left and right:

Repeat the above procedure. If you want to make a window, you just need to glue 3 sticks ( from the total 12 sticks) which will have a shorter length. The window becomes more beautiful, if you stick chopsticks in outline and toothpicks inside, horizontally and vertically in a cross shape.

To make the wall with the door:

Follow the same procedure as in the window. To make the door stick toothpicks one underneath the other, as many as it takes to fill the gap that the wall has. Once you have the desired dimensions use sticker paper or Scotch tape and stick the left side of the door to the inner wall. This acts as a hinge, and opens and closes the door. For handle use spices or whatever else is small.

Once you have built the walls, it’s time to glue them together. Be careful the walls must be parallel, because there is a tendency to fall inwards …. place small boxes at the angles (as props) until the glue is dry.

For the end you have to make the roof

To accomplish that, you have to make two other squares and glue them so as to create a triangle image.

You can also watch the famous video for more details, because a picture = 1000 words and so on and so on …..: P

And one rejuvenating touch !!!!

I placed inside the house a battery candle and put it to illuminate. I think it gives a beautiful and romantic touch !!  Our house is completed. We now have two options, either use it as a decoration in our room or turn it into a dollhouse for children to play.

Good luck!!!!
