A simple Christmas craft

I’ve been dreaming about Christmas season the whole year, and now that it’s so near, I can’t contain myself on doing my first merry craft. Today’s tutorial is a quick one. All you’ll need are some cinnamon sticks available on your nearest supermarket and a glue gun.

First I cut my cinnamon sticks in half and glue this halves together in sets of four. After doing this 4 times (2 sidewalls and 2 roof wings), I start putting the cinnamon house together. To make the roof, I used one of the cinnamon sticks as the center beam. For the side walls I used the same method as the roof (using beams). You’ll noticed this on the second photo. For the wall on the back of the house, I glued some more sticks and, for the front, I used 4 long sticks and  4 smaller ones so I could leave an opening. The door was made from 3 cinnamon sticks. Of course an itsy-bitsy chimeny was a must!
This project was so fun to do and inexpensive too! Hope you’ve enjoyed this as much as I did, and don’t forget to leave me your feedback. I really enjoy reading what’s on your mind!
