Line seven popsicle sticks up beside each other. Place two popsicle sticks in the opposite direction over the top and cut off the ends. Glue these two sticks down on top of the others.

Brush stain over your observation deck. We used a ‘classic grey’ stain so that it would match the wood box we use for our fairy garden. Set it aside to dry. Apply an outdoor sealer over the top, and again, let it dry before moving on.
