A tree house model is a fun and easy way to build a tree house. It can be a great opportunity to spend time with loved ones as you spend time constructing it together. Be sure to use everyday household items and objects from your backyard to create your own, unique model. Read on to learn how to make a model of a tree house.
Things You'll Need
- Popsicle sticks
- Tree branch
- Coloring paint
Go outside and find a forked tree branch. It must be a clean, dry and sturdy branch to support the model. Dirt, dampness and wood mold can rot the stick.
Draw your model tree house on paper and color it. You can use this as a guide when you're ready to put your model together.
Stand your branch on a sturdy object using a jar, vase or glass to keep it anchored down. This makes it easier to place your tree house model on the crook of the branch.
Glue the Popsicle sticks together and follow the drawing of your model to build your mini tree house. Use a newspaper to catch messy glue drips.
Let the glue of your model dry up until it hardens. Place the model in a warm place to dry faster.
Color your tree house model with paint, then leave the paint to dry.
Put your tree house model on the crook of your branch. Use glue to keep the miniature model in place if necessary.
Tips & Warnings
- Use glitter, confetti and any other decorations to brighten up the design. Use paper to draw a background.
- Make the roof detachable so you can redesign the interior. Add toy furniture and people inside the miniature tree house to liven up your model.
- Be careful when painting as too much pressure with the brush may damage the miniature tree house.
