- 4 toothpicks
- 4 toilet paper tubes
- thin cardboard, I used old manilla folders
- paper-I used parchment coloured paper
- crayons or water colour paints
- template from Storm the Castle
- stiffer cardboard for the base
I used an old paintbrush to thinly spread out the glue, this helps to avoid wrinkles and bubbles.
The base is made from a small box. I cut off the top flaps, turned the box upside down. I glued bright green paper around the edges of the box to simulate grass. Next, I glued the castle to the box. I cut out some wavy blue shapes to serve as a moat around the castle. I glued those down on top of the base of the castle, lining the straight edges up with the edges of the box.
The paper castle is another inexpensive craft, but it does take a certain amount of precision to get it to look right.
Try it out and have fun decorating it!
