luckily, we are all on the mend and i've finally found some down time to share this Popsicle stick haunted house we made last week.
Small popsicle sticks (optional)
Scissors (heavy duty ones)
Assorted Halloween decorations
1. Roof: to start, line up 20 popsicle sticks and glue five sticks in perpendicular fashion to provide support. repeat to make other side of roof. support beams may be placed for added decoration.
2. Front: to make the front of the house use ten popsicle sticks with two glued in perpendicular fashion to provide support. cut another ten sticks to size to allow space for a doorway. (i recommend using heavy duty scissors because you likely break your regular scissors.) two sticks can be used for door framing.
3. Back: similarly to make the back use ten popsicle sticks. cut the sticks to size to make the window. to provide support use three sticks (two at the edges and one in the middle) glued in perpendicular fashion. add small popsicle sticks (or you can cut regular popsicle sticks) to make the frame of the window.
put the sides, the front, and back together one at a time and glue the edges. hold until the glue dries. finally place the roof on and glue in place, and we are done! there is a lot of room for creativity in this project. the less perfect it is, the more haunted it looks. win, win.
thanks for stopping by, and happy hallow-halloween! wishing you and your families a safe trick or treating season.
