I made this playhouse a little while ago for  Clare Crespo’s Yummyfun Kooking.  It’s made of cardboard boxes, bits of found wood, foil, plastic and lots and lots of popsicle sticks. I had a blast making it and it was a nice shift of gears and a good “brain opener”.  Clare is filming some new episodes of the Yummyfun Kooking show and I can’t wait to see the playhouse in action.  I’m a huge fan of C. Crespo and Yummyfun – if you are not already familiar I  recommend you check it out, most especially if you have little folks. There’s a recipe club and everything where you get stuff in the mail!


  1. What a fun house! I would love to see it human sized, maybe near a beach.

  4. Hi Ann
    My favorite blogs are like yours, about making things. I can imagine how difficult it is to live in NYC. I’ve supported myself for 45 years with my sewing machine and a needle and thread, it’s a pleasure, a joy and a struggle every day.
    Best to you

  5. Wow! What a marvel! It is the house of my dreams that looks like my creations a lot also! It is really funny. I am a fan of the collage that I use everyday then this cardboard quirky house pleases me enormously. BRAVO!
