Build a Miniature House Kit

Build a Miniature House Kit

To build a miniature house kit, you will need a screwdriver, small and large flathead screwdrivers, a pencil, a pair of scissors, masking tape, and paintbrushes.

Step 1:

Take the first piece of wood out of the box and use the small flathead screwdriver to pry off the two staples holding it in place. Use the pencil to draw lines on both sides of the wood piece as well as on the ends.

Once this is done, cut along all four sides using your scissors or a utility knife (be careful). Take off the two pieces that were held together by staples and use them as guides when cutting off another piece of wood from the box.

Cut along all four sides with your scissors or utility knife again. Repeat this process until you have enough pieces for what you want to build in your miniature house kit.

Step 2:

Take the first piece of wood and put it on a flat surface. Put a small amount of masking tape on the bottom edge of the wood and press it down. Do this with all pieces that you cut off.

Step 3:

You will now need to make your own floor plan for your miniature house kit. Take one of the pieces you cut off from the box and lay it on top of another piece so that they match up perfectly (use your pencil to mark where they overlap).

Do this with all pieces that you cut off from the box and use them as guides when putting them together. You can also use some extra masking tape to keep each piece in place while you work.

When everything is in place, take your scissors or utility knife and cut along each side of where two pieces meet. Do this until all pieces are completely separate from one another. Make sure that all pieces are at least 1/2 inch apart from one another.

Step 4:

Now that you have all of your pieces separated, you will need to put them together to make your own miniature house kit. Put two pieces together (one with the lines facing up and one with the lines facing down) and hold them in place with masking tape.

Put masking tape on both sides of where they overlap and make sure that it is very secure. Do this with all pieces until you have a complete structure for your miniature house kit.

When it is complete, take off all of the masking tapes so that it does not stick to anything when you paint it. Use small and large flathead screwdrivers to poke holes in any spots where there is too much masking tape or any areas where you want to add detail later on (like a window).

Step 5:

You will now need to paint your miniature house kit. If you are using a premade floor plan for your miniature house kit, make sure that it is completely dry before you paint over it.

Do not use too much paint on each piece because this will make them too heavy when they are finished. Let each piece dry completely before adding more paint or detail (this is important).
