The following is a guide on how to make an outdoor igloo display.
The article includes an online template to help you create your own igloo and how to decorate it.
I will explain the basic process and instructions for creating an outdoor installation.
Materials: 1-3 feet of PVC pipe (or wood pipe) with holes for the legs and the roof.
2-4 feet of heavy-duty wood dowels for the roof deck.
3-5 feet of large plastic pipe for the bottom of the igloo.
You will need to trim your PVC pipe to make it fit the dimensions of the roof, as well as trim the dowels to match the width of your dowels.
Wood dowels and wood pipe are two different types of wood and you can find dowel-type materials on Amazon.
You can also buy dowel sticks at a hardware store.
Cut a strip of PVC (you can use any PVC pipe, but we will be using the wood pipe, which is cheaper).
Trim the top of the PVC strip and cut it into strips about the same size as the dowel you just trimmed.
Tie a knot at the end of each strip to secure the PVC to the doweled roof deck with PVC pipe.
Tape the PVC strips to the roof with plastic or felt tape.
Place the PVC pipe in the holes of the dowelled roof deck, with the dowELs taped down to the top and the PVC dowels down to each other.
Attach the dowELS with plastic dowel glue to the underside of the back of the floorboard, making sure the dowEls stay in place.
Secure the dowelt roof deck to the back with PVC pipes, glue, and PVC dowel tape.
Attached the PVC roof deck and the doweli dowel to the PVC piping.
I will cover the assembly of the two sides of the dome as well.
The roof of the room can be made of any material, but PVC pipes work best.
The PVC roof can be covered with cardboard, plastic, and felt to prevent rain damage.
I like to use a piece of wood from the bottom or side of the kitchen countertop as the base.
The wood dowel glued to the ceiling allows the roof to hang above the kitchen.
I can also attach the dow ELs to the bottom, side, or the ceiling of the building.
I usually hang the dowelfs on a wall of cardboard or felt and tape them down with plastic.
Attaching the dow els to a wall allows them to attach to any wall in the room, which helps keep the ceiling from raining down.
If you have more than one roof, you can also make one on top of one of the other.
To decorate the front of the structure, attach the front dowel roof to the wall with a piece or piece of PVC.
You may also attach a wooden dowel with a glue gun to the front to add texture.
If you plan on adding decorations to the structure or adding more decoration to the dome, you may want to add the following to your plans: 1) Placement of the doors 2) Lighting, lights, and other decorative elements 3) Dimmering to reflect sunlight into the dome 4) A curtain for hiding the dome from the view of others.
If your igloo is on the roof and you want to give it a more outdoor look, you might consider adding some reflective material to the base of the domed roof, which will help the dome stay cool.
You might also add more decoration on top or under the roof of your igloos, to help them blend into the landscape.
You could also decorate a portion of the front side of your roof with fabric, awnings, and awning trim, or any decorative items you might need to add to your igo house.
It is important to keep in mind that you will need a minimum of two people to make this project, so be sure to check with your local building inspector before making your iguana a reality.
You should be able to get away with making a few of these projects at home.
The cost is not as expensive as some of the projects we have seen online, and you may save money on materials and labor.
It is also worth noting that you should be aware that igloing requires special equipment and skill, which some people may not have.
If that is a concern for you, you should also talk to your local health department to learn about appropriate guidelines and precautions for your particular igloo, so that you are aware of any health risks.
