Since the Black Hat Inn is one of my more popular houses, I thought I would go over some of the details involved in making it. I got a lot of ideas from the Cardboard Christmas forum and posted some of this same information there.

Next you see how I twisted paper to make the roots and the bark on the base of Black Hat Inn. I always like using simple materials like newspaper that are easy to find and inexpensive.
Here's another view of the twisted paper making the roots and bark around the doorway of the Black Hat Inn.
See why I had to keep painting the hat over and over? I kept getting white gesso paint on it.
