Introduction: How to Make a Match House

I show how to make a house from matches. It is fairly simple to make and requires no tools. It can be made without using any glue or tape. It is a fun project when you are bored and can be used as a gift or just for fun. This requires a lot of matches and time. Similarly to the match cube I made, the match house does not really have any practical purpose just an interesting way to store or display your matches.

Step 1: Materials

-Wooden Matches (About 300+)

-Time (It is rather time consuming)

Step 2: Watch the Video

(The video may not show up for mobile viewers)

And of course a video of the matchstick house burning.

    It looks like they are made out of 4" pine matches.

    im curious as to whether you started out looking for pink match heads? It really adds to the overall look. Ive admittedly only seen generic ones.
    Its done exceptionally well.
