DIY castle

It was my niece's birthday sometime back and Naisha wanted to 'make' a gift. After much thought we decided on a thermacol castle since the theme of the party was 'Princess'. This is what it turned out as...

Here's what we did...

I cut out a basic castle shape using a hot old trick. I nicked a shoulder of the castle but..
Naisha rationalised very pragmatically.. 'It's an old castle mama ..some of it has to be broken.'
And we were sorted :-)

Naisha helped paint it pink. I tried to stick on the shoulder with no luck at all.

A little bit of detailing. The red 'brickwork' and the silver dabs.

Then we rolled some matching pink handmade paper to make towers

..this is what it looked like.

I wanted to add a princess somewhere but couldn't quite figure out where. Rapunzel was ruled out.. we wanted no sad princess around on the happy day. Yes we are a little superstitious. With the birthday fast approaching we had to be satisfied with just this. What do you say?

Then we stuck/tied the bits together and we were done.
