As a kid, I always used to love playing with Lincoln Logs, especially around Christmas time when we would make a village out of them underneath the Christmas tree. So when I needed to make some Christmas decorations/presents on a budget, Lincoln Logs became my inspiration.
With a little bit of work, you can make a box of craft sticks into a wide variety of Lincoln-Log-Type pieces which can be used to make virtually any little structure! The project possibilities are only limited by your imagination and how many popsicles you can eat (or craft sticks you have...lol)!
This instructable will show you how to make the Lincoln stick pieces and then detail the designs of two "log cabin" structures that I built out of them. I welcome any and all comments or suggestions!
Step 1: Materials
For this project, you will need the following materials and tools:
(Brown) Spray Paint
Artificial Snow (optional)
Saw (I used a jigsaw, but a table saw might be even better)
Please note that the craft sticks I used in this project are: 4.5 x 3/8 x 1/12"
If you use craft sticks of any other dimensions, you will have to proportionately modify the following steps.
