Tudor House Craft

Tudor half-timbered houses are easily recognisable by their black wooden frames and painted wattle and daub. Have a go at out Tudor house craft and make your own!

Tudor House Craft

You will need:

White box (or a box painted white – you could even mix some sand in with the paint for a more traditional textured look)
Black card
Brown card
White card
Double sided tape or glue
Black pen

Instructions:

Fold some of the black card in half so that it sits on top of the box and forms the roof. Tape or glue into place.

Cut a small ‘house’ shape from some white card. Glue or tape this into place in the middle of the roof so that it looks like a dormer window.

Tudor house detail

Cut a number of strips of the black paper and stick them to the walls of the box as your timber frame. Add a rectangle of brown for a door. We added a "wood grain" effect and a handle with a black pen.

To finish off, draw on some windows. Remember that in Tudor times glass was very expensive and the more windows a person had the richer they were seen to be.
