I made this house about a month ago and it just did not work. No matter how many leaves I glued on the front, it did not look the way I wanted it to. Last night I noticed the house sitting with the back towards me and I realized I could make it into a house I like.
|Initial Tree House Prototype - not working|
|Back of the house as I first made it|
|Trying to fix the house by gluing on lots more leaves - still not working|
The extra leaves framed the house better and the hole in the back for the light could function as the opening in a bird house. Now if I had started out making a bird house, I would have made a bigger opening, centered it better and added a perch. But I figured I could still modify the house so that I would like it.
It is very satisfying to salvage a project, don't you think?
