The five lolly sticks used for the gate are higher than the fence. Use an ordinary pair of scissors or a special mitre cutter to cut the lolly sticks to size.

    Make the roof by cutting lolly sticks in half. Glue on the half-sized lolly sticks side by side using a glue gun. As illustrated in the photo, cut two lolly sticks to a length which fits the distance from the edge of the slope to the top. Glue both of these lolly sticks on each side for the gable, creating a lovely finish.
