Roof Shingles


I absolutely LOVE the roof! Yes, it has been a long and arduous process, but it was well worth it. And the best part, I didn't need to spend a single penny on shingles! I had been saving left over shingles from all my previous dollhouse projects ... and I was over the moon when I finished my roofing project with about 50 or so pieces left!

Remember the half pack of skinny sticks that was left after I finished the interior moldings? I used the remaining sticks to refine the corners where the roof edges meet. See what difference it makes? A few sticks, a bit of glue and some masking tape ... and limitless patience of course!

There is still a bit more work to do before the roof is completed. I need to add the gingerbread trims and the railings on top, and paint the roof in a dark tone as in my inspiration photo.
