cardboard playhouse

You’ve seen the felt houses.

You’ve seen the ones you can buy at walmart for hundreds of dollars.


The cardboard playhouse.

Cost:  maybe $10

STart with a BIG box:

lucky for me my sis in law just unpacked her new stove!!!!
cut out some windows and a door
start painting.
For the roof: I went to this awesome “teacher” store and found a huge roll of this corrugated trim (it’s for bulletin boards)
oh yes, this is my favorite part! 3.29. for a roof. It tears apart into a wavy line.
hot glued that around…then I didn’t tear it apart and just applied the strips all along the top.
 Made some shutters
and a mailbox out of:
and some mail:
Made some leaves:
and flowers for the leaves:
put them in a flower box….
(Just a rectangle and on the sides some triangles)
Made a welcome mat welcome mat
and what house is complete without that sign

needed a picket white fence

needed an address so the post man can deliver the mail…
oh…and some cardboard curtains…

put it all together and what do you get?
hours of cheap fun.
put in a doggy door
Thanks for all who voted for this playhouse on S.Y.T.Y.C!!!! I am so excited to be in the top TEN!!!
