This year I decided that I wanted to make a couple of miniature houses for my nativity village.
In the past years my family bought some other miniatures houses for it but, looking at them, I realized that they were made out of thin cardboard and they weren't even so nice after all...so I thought I had to try and make better ones!

In this instructable I will show you how to make a basic miniature house using cardboard.
Using this method you can create all the miniatures houses you want!
You can change shape, size, colors, details...anything! Just let your fantasy lead you and who knows, maybe you can even create your dream (miniature) house! :D

Step 1: What you need

  • pieces of cardboard
  • hot glue (or white glue)
  • cutter
  • brown, green and gray acrylic paint
  • clay roof tiles (or similar)
  • pencil and ruler
<p>hmmmm..Why wasn't this featured? My guess is the 'What you need' step did not have a photo :-(</p><p>You did a great job though! :-D</p>
<p>Thanks! No, most of my ibles don't have a photo in the &quot;what you need&quot; step...that doesn't really matter in featuring, personally I don't even think of that in other ibles.</p><p>The truth is that this project is probably not as good as others :)</p>
<p>Maybe, or unless the editors missed it - but I doubt that. Sometimes insturctables are featured later on. There is always hope. :-)</p>
Sooo cute! love miniatures! they're really fun to make :)
They really are! Thank you so much! :)
Very cute! Some tiny clay stones on the wall will be nice too :-)
Thank you! I actually drew the stones on the wall in one of the other miniatures houses I made but adding &quot;real&quot; clay stones is a good idea!
