I made this playhouse for my 18 month old daughter and she loves it.

Skill Level: 


Approximate Crafting Time: 


Supplies and Tools:

  • cardboard boxes
  • wrapping paper
  • box cutters
  • scissors
  • Mod Podge
  • Paintbrush


  • Step 1

    Cut boxes to desired size. Use one or multiple boxes, but make sure they can easily be attached to eachother

  • Step 2

    Tape boxes to each other. You do not need to be perfect about this. You will end up taping over it. Make sure to cover each seam inside and out.

  • Step 3

    Cut windows / doors where you want them.

  • Step 4

    Use wrapping paper as wallpaper using a decoupage technique.

  • Step 5

    Use Duck Tape for floors.

  • Step 6

    Use Duck Tape in burgundy and brown to simulate a brick look.

  • Step 7

    Use Duck Tape in silver coin on the roof to simulate a tin roof.

  • Step 8

    Cover door with Duck Tape and use silver coin to look like a window (or simply cut out a window) I used black for the window pane.

  • Step 9

    Trim inside and out with white to cover rough edges and make it look like crown molding and trim boards.

  • Step 10

    Use gray Duck Tape around the bottom to look like a foundation.

  • Step 11

    Make shutters with appropriately sized cardboard for shutters.

  • Step 12

    Use a small cardboard box for a flowerbox and cover it with White Duck Tape.

  • Step 13

    This is great! It's so cute! I bet your daughter loves this! I can't make anything like this, though! You're an awesome duct taper! Keep on Ducttaping.

    What a fantastic idea! This playhouse looks so realistic, and much better than you could find in a toy store! The person who made this is a creative genius! Kudos! I can't wait to try this!
