Hot glue gun or thick tacky glue
Strong scissors or branch cutters
Silk flowers and leaves
Line up 8 Popsicle sticks. Take 2 more sticks and form the roof. Using a pencil draw a line on an angle for the roof line. This is a bit tricky because you have not yet glued anything together yet and the sticks will want to move while you try to draw. An extra pair of hands here would be nice. :) Once lines are drawn use your scissors or branch trimmers to snip the sticks to the right angle. Ok! Hard part done! Line up your sticks in the correct order and glue one stick crossways across the bottom to hold everything in place. Now for the roof. Take 2 more sticks and snip them to the correct length. Glue them down.
Now for the fun part! Paint your door. When dry apply embellishments. Don't forget to dot a little glue where you would like the glitter or that faerie my sprinkle her own!
