- Crafting knife
- A marker
- Ice cream sticks around 100

Steps To Make A DIY Ice Cream Stick House
Step 1: Before preparing this model, place an old newspaper or a brown sheet to avoid the spread or spilling of glue or colours at any place.
Step 2: Take the ice cream sticks and make four different squares of four sticks, glueing the four sticks altogether.
Note: apply the glue carefully to prevent ice cream sticks from sticking on the brown paper.
Step 3: Now, fill the square by pasting other sticks on the square sticks carefully. Try to avoid the spacing. Here you have prepared the four walls of the house.
Step 4: Now, make triangles with the help of the three ice cream sticks.
Step 5: Make three more squares like the walls out of the sticks to complete the roof and attach the triangles to it with the assistance of adhesive.
Step 6: Cut out the door and windows in the wall by making proper markings.
Step 7: Stick the walls altogether.
Step 8: Stick the walls and roof together and place them on a cardboard or a wooden block.
Step 9: To decorate the house use poster colours and colour them.
- Make use of either newspaper or brown paper to prevent the spill of colours or glue.
- Try to make use of a glue gun to be sure the material is appropriately glued.
- Using poster colour instead of watercolours for a better look
