- Wooden tissue box
- Bits of bark
- Wood off cuts
- Small stones
- Silicone glue
We built a roof for the tissue box out of hardboard and cut two windows and a door using our Dremel.
We stripped the bark off of some logs we had lying around and used silicone glue to clad the outside of the tissue box.
We cut thin strips of wood into small shingles which we sealed with a matte outdoor wood sealer and then covered the roof and finally we finished the top of the roof off with a piece of pewter.
The outhouse is covered in strips of pewter and the long drop is a small piece of wood that we drilled a hole into.
