Select brown colored cardstock paper for this craft and prepare the patterns from the template by printing and cutting them out. Trace the template patterns using a pencil, on the selected cardstock paper. The template includes 2 patterns, 1 for the roof and 1 for the house. Click HERE to print the Template.
Use poster color to paint borders, door and windows on the front side of the house cut out. Allow the paint to dry after the painting is done.
Fold the house cut out. Follow the lines inside the house template pattern for folding it. Fold along the shown lines.
Apply glue along the extra thin part of the house pattern and attach it with the part next to it to close all 4 sides of the house.
Take the roof cut out. Paint borders and tile patterns on the roof. Paint any pattern you want and once the painting is done allow it dry.
After the painting dries fold the roof cut out into half along the traced line shown in the template.
Apply glue and join the roof on the top side of the house.
Grab both white and colored Styrofoam balls. Cut the Styrofoam balls into half.
Glue the half cut Styrofoam balls on the house (and roof) to decorate it.
Decorate the borders of the roof and the sides of the house.
Keep adding until the decoration looks nice or complete.
Allow the glue to dry and done!
Be sure to pin for later!
