    Place the twings (one-by-one) on the template, mark the area that matches with the template size and use the x-acto knife to cut the twigs on the marked area. Measure and cut twigs from a side for each part of the template. This should take a while.

    After the glue dries use the wood glue to join all the parts of the cabin together. Don't forget to use smaller twigs to form the window.
    Later on I added a door to the cabin made out of cardboard.

    Place the cabin on anything hard and flat. I made a flat concrete piece for it. Glue the cabin on the flat surface and also glue the welcome sign in front of the cabin. Add more features to the cabin if you want to. Enjoy!
