In this article, we will show you how to make miniature gypsy caravan using only popsicle sticks.


  • Popsicle sticks
  • Hot Glue gun
  • Cardboard

Lay down 4 popsicle sticks parallel and lay 2 more sticks on top & bottom ends. Glue them together, so they will form as a wall with a window in the middle. We have to make two of them.

We cut cardboard into a rectangle frame as a caravan floor. Connect it with two walls vertically at both sides. Then cut another thin cardboard and curve it a little bit for a caravan rooftop.

We cut popsicle sticks into the short lengths and place them as the roof tiles (as the picture below).

Cut another cardboard and curve a little bit on top, and glue it into the back wall. Then decorate the window a little bit with window shades.

Next, we cut small cardboard into circular wheels, then use 4 small pieces of straw as wheels holders. Insert bbq stick in the straw, then glue it with cardboard wheels.

Lastly, we build a stair and balustrade in front of the caravan. And here is how it looks like after finish.
