If you are one of those people who had a childhood reading Enid Blyton books, then you can consider yourself lucky. While we are aware that Enid Blyton books lacked the technology and the sci-fi effects of current fiction, there was a certain simple appeal to them that made you feel good. Among the many aspects of Enid Blyton books, the one thing that remains in your mind is the kind of adventures children would have where they lived in caravans, camped and built treehouses. We are sure most of you who grew up reading these books, have a lot of longing for if not all at least one of the things that we mentioned above. While many of you may have lucky to have done one or most of these things, others may not be that lucky. Let us tell you that even if you feel that you cannot do any of them, you do have the chance to have a miniature tree house of your own. Yes, it is a small scale model of a bigger treehouse. There are many beautiful tree house ideas that you can look at and pick one out of.
In fact, if you really want to stand out and be something beyond ordinary, then you could go for a treehouse for one of your Christmas tree decorating ideas. Having a miniature tree house project could be the ultimate dreamy backyard escape ideas for you. Just imagine, what a great project it would be for you, your partner, and your kids (if you have any) to indulge in on weekends.
The thing about tree houses in full scale is that as fascinating and fun as they are, need a fully grown tree not to mention a lot of skill and raw materials to ensure that you create a tree house. But that is not the case with miniature tree houses. You can even start this project with a small artificial tree if you wish. But if you want to be authentic, then you can start the project on a tree that has been miniaturized using bonsai techniques. This is almost like creating a dollhouse but on a tree.
And if you happen to have a tree in your backyard, but do not have the means to go for a full size treehouse, then you can still use the tree but in a smaller scale than you would for a full size one. One of the main merits of a tree house in a miniature scale is that you don’t even need a tree or plant or a garden for that matter. You can actually build one in your balcony garden using potted plants.
Once you get started on this project, you will find that it will be difficult to stop and that could be the only downside of an undertaking of this kind. But other than that the only negative that we can envisage is that others may envy the beauty of your garden and trees due to the addition of miniature tree houses.
We are sure that the images we have provided along with this article, will give you plenty of ideas on what sort of miniature tree houses you want to build. You will need to collect enough miniature tree house parts and if possible made of natural materials like stone, wood or ceramic so that your miniature tree house is completely green. We are sure that this project will have you and your family completely enchanted and absorbed.
We would love it if you would share some of your endeavors with us.
