Step 1. Gather your supplies.
Paint a large milk carton with Simply Spray® Project Paint Red all until it is completely and evenly covered.
Cut out rectangles from every side of the milk carton with the following measurements:
1 ½” from the bottom
1” from the top
½” from both sides
Paint 20 craft sticks blue.
Hot glue 10 craft sticks to each side of the top of the milk carton to create a roof, as shown.
Tip: Push the spout down so it no longer sticks out.
Hole punch a hole 1” from the bottom on two sides across from each other. On the two remaining sides, hole punch holes ½” from the bottom of the carton.
Insert round dowels through the holes, as shown.
Thread a 12” piece of black cording under one side of craft sticks and tie in a knot.
