Picture of DIY Miniature Castle

Miniatures are cute and fun to make. There are many tutorials for miniature house and castle building, but I thought I could make it a little more easier, especially for kids. I've made this miniature castle out of brown paper and I've tried to simplify the steps as much as possible. I don't know much about castles! But I hope this helps :)

Step 1: Materials needed

To make this miniature castle you'll need:-

1) Brown paper,
2) Glue,
3) Paper, pen or pencil,
4) Scissor,
5) Poster color,
6) Paint brush,
7) Cardboard (5X5 inches)
8) Thermocol sheet,
9) Blue polythene paper

Step 2: Design and template

First you need to make sure about the design of the miniature castle. Draw the design (front view and top view) of the castle , this will help to build the miniature castle easily. 
After drawing the design you'll need to make a template (including each and every part of the castle). You may follow the template of my miniature castle instead. I also marked the towers, roof, square buildings and other parts with alphabets, it reduces confusion while making the template. 

Step 3: Building the parts

After you're done making the template, cut out each part carefully. You can color the parts as you want. I used poster colors and markers.

To make the towers simply roll the paper and glue the sides.
To make the conical roofs, take the round papers and cut off 135o out of it. Roll them like cones and glue the sides. Attach them on the top of the towers with glue.
For the square buildings, fold the the paper 4 times (as shown in the picture) and glue the sides. Glue a flat roof and zigzag carvings around the buildings with glue.

Nice Job! I guess you're very very crafty! Although I do wish that you could have added a print-out template. But overall, it's very creative.
