Introduction: Popsicle Stick House Arson

Now this is fun:

A couple hundred Popsicle sticks + a few sticks of hot glue + homework + fireworks + a match =


Now, I may be getting an actual Instructable out soon with tips on how to make your own Popsicle stick house; but for now, here's some pictures of the cremation process.

First, my brother decided to shoot his with his BB gun. Then, he put a few firecrackers and M2's in it and sent them off...

After all that, we stuffed them with old homework and firecrackers, dropped a match, and got about 15 feet away.

Look for videos, soon to be uploaded!

    Where do I buy popsicle sticks? I think I would prefer a car, then light it on fire and roll into the house :D would be so fun...

    This is awesome. I'm in the process of making one and then I'll paint it with that burning paint, put smoke bomb mix in it, gunpowder, and maybe some Lego people in it for effect.

    I agree-except it would have to be miniature otherwise it would just be overkill.
