Finishing:
Use fabric stiffener to stiffen each crochet piece. Pin each piece to shape on a plastic covered board, making sure walls and roof of
house are a matching height and width. Cut a piece of foam core or Styrofoam to fit porch. Cover with plastic Wrap and use as  a
support to shape porch. Let pieces dry thoroughly. Using each wall of the house as a pattern, trim a piece of plastic canvas to fit. Cut
away the canvas behind each window and doorway. Use the craft glue to glue the canvas to the wrong side of each crochet wall. Use
the glue gun to glue the four walls of the house together. Cut a canvas piece for the bottom of the house and glue in place. Glue a
length of white florist wire along the bottom of every row of roof, placing the wire on the wrong side of the roof. Fold the roof along the
center base rows and glue roof in place. Glue chimneys onto the roof, as shown.
Glue porch onto foam core shape and glue rails in place along porch edges.
