Watch more with these video collections:

Popsicle stick house construction is a popular activity among crafters on YouTube, and though Guldies is better known for their claymation shorts, this 2018 video expedition into DIY model crafting makes it look easy. See how popsicle sticks, a few tools, and some attention to detail can build a charming home, influenced by Queen Anne-style architecture.

Additional tools include a ruler, an X-acto knife, a Dremel for sanding and cutting, a hot glue gun, and some paint. Patience, practice, and a lot of edits also help make this build process look smooth.

Queen Anne was a popular Victorian style of architecture in the United States from around 1880 to 1910. American versions of these houses typically feature an asymmetrical facade, steeply pitched roofs, a dominant front-facing gable, one or more towers or turrets, and a wrap-around front porch or veranda.
