How to Make a Match House





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.
