Paper Houses-DIY


  • Card stock in your choice of colors*
  • Hot glue
  • A fake flocked wreath**
  • Bottle brush Christmas trees (over a dozen from 1-4 inches tall)
  • White craft paint (optional, but it will help the houses match the flocked trees and wreath)
  • Cutting tools (either a cutting machine or scissors and exacto knife)
  • Free cut files (see below

    Materials Notes:

    *I used 10 pieces of card stock. You can easily get away with using less, I just used more to be able to get the colors and combinations I wanted. If you are using a cutting machine, you will need 12×12 inch card stock paper. If you are printing and cutting by hand, you will need 8.5 x 11 inch card stock. I personally like the color selection and paper quality at Jo-Ann the best.

    **I found a 24 inch fake flocked wreath at Jo-Ann for $5.99. It was on sale, but I just checked the price today and it is still that price! You can use a non-flocked wreath, but I find that that the bottle brush trees look best on a flocked

  • wreath.
