DIY Mini Camping Set Craft with Sticks and Paper
Supplies for the tent :
- Glue Gun
- Popsicle sticks
- Patterned paper
- Measuring tape or a ruler.
For the Campsite
- Artificial stones
- Patterned paper blue for the lake
- Felt sheet in green for the grass
- Red pipe cleaner
To make the tent –
Cut your patterned paper or cardstock into a rectangle 12 inch by 6 inch. We used a 12×12 cardstock & cut it in half.
You could also make it smaller by reducing the paper size in same ratio eg – 9×4.5 or a 6×3
Use a ruler to mark 3.9 inches on the paper. Then, fold the rectangle into a tent shape by making 3 folds at exactly 3.9 inches and then pasting the extra space over the other end to form a triangle as shown below. So we have a triangle structure that’s now 6 inches wide and has a triangle at both ends.
Using a low heat hot melt glue gun, affix 4 popsicle sticks, 2 at each end. Glue the first stick and then overlap the second one on top taking care to align them to the paper edge.
Set up the whole Campsite by placing the blue cardstock at the bottom. The layer on top is the green felt grass. Cut out a wavy shape to resemble an actual grassland next to a lake. Sprinkle your set with artificial stones, place your tents and create a mini fireplace using stones placed in a circle ,some cut up mini twigs to form the firewood & finally red chenille stick acts like fire.
