Popsicle stick house tutorial- how to build a Popsicle house


Okay! So here I come with my latest experiment with Popsicle sticks. In this popsicle stick house tutorial, you will learn all the basic tricks to make the walls, windows, fence and stairs to build a beautiful little craft house.

I would say, making this craft is a fantastic boredom buster for adults and teenagers! This is also something parents and kids can do together. The kids can draw a plan of the house beforehand which will help them calculate the number of walls and windows needed. Decide the height and width and stack the popsicle sticks accordingly. This is a fun project to develop the engineering and math skills of your growing kids.

I strongly recommend the use of a wood glue instead of hot glue if kids are trying this.

For my popsicle stick house, I used up approximately 250 popsicle sticks and a lot of glue. (I need to visit the craft shop soon to buy my next batch of glue sticks!)

I have also included the pics of a few important steps below!

How I made a wall

I stacked the popsicle sticks and glued them together using another set of popsicle sticks as shown below. Adjust the number of sticks according to the height of the wall you want.

How I made a window

I made a simple window by cutting 4 popsicle sticks using scissors and gluing them together. Then I glued a piece of net fabric to make a curtain.
