I found some bits around the house and thought I would make a start to see where things go.

The reason that the scene isn't too wide is that this was a small piece of plywood that was going to be thrown out. So I decided to recycle

I also tend to keep used guitar strings as I have always been convinced I'd use them for something....now I have!

The original idea was to glue a piece of card to the wood and using a knife, cut out cobbles. After the first few, I realized this was going to be far too time consuming. I just wanted to make this a quick and easy project.

So instead, I used a thinner card and cut it into strips then squares and glued them onto the wood. Most cobbled streets I've seen are not uniform, so random sizes of cobbles/card seem to be the best way to go.

Spread a small amount of glue on the base. work in small sections or the glue drys and you just have to add more !!

For the baricade, take the wood stirrers and cut them into sections approx 1" in length.
 - I found that wire cutters is good enough to cut the wooden stirrers

Then glue the sticks in to make an X. 
When the glue sets, then snip the bottom of the X to give it a flat bottom

I used a small nail and hammer to punch a hole to feed the wire through

This looks absolutely amazing, I'm not sure if I could create it but I know this is definitely something I would buy
Has a sort of Fallout feel to it...
