This is only an example of what can be done with a bit of imagination.
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!
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 !!
- 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
