Paint the papier-mâché houses with Art Metal paint and leave to dry.
Paint the indentations in the windows and the door in a different colour Art Metal paint.
Make the roof for the house by cutting a sheet of foam rubber using the templates which are available as a PDF file on this page. The foam rubber is self-adhesive once the backing paper is removed. Please note that the papier-mâché houses are handmade and may vary in shape and size. Therefore, the templates are only meant as a guide. Trim the foam rubber roof to fit the house.
Cut a small hole in the middle of the foam rubber sheet so that you can fit the string for hanging and/or the chimney through the hole. Remove the backing paper to stick the foam rubber onto the house.
Fold in the edges of the foam rubber.
Finish by decorating with glitter glue around the windows, the door and the roof, adding small details.
