Step 2:

Prepare your materials by laying them out, trimming off roots, cutting sticks so they are an even length and separating leaves from stems. This will help to have all your materials ready for the decorating steps.

Step 3:

Start with your walls and stand your sticks up to create cylinder or cube, whichever shape you prefer. You can use a pan of dirt or foam to help hold your house in place. If you choose to put your house directly into the ground outside, that is also a good option.
