You will need
- - thick paper or cardboard;
- - the range;
- - matches;
- - needle file.
To get started, cut a match head. On paper or cardboard, draw a square 7x7 cm
Then draw a square inside an octagon with sides 3 cm Now need to build the base of the tower: for this first match stick on 4 sides of the octagon (top, bottom, right and left sides), then on the sloping sides (these matches should be between the first four). So you get the base of the tower exposed "logs" - the logs width – 1 match.
Make a second row of sticks. To do this, as well as at the base of the first long match stick (straight side), and then between them – a short, sloping. Continue in the same sequence; you need to gain height wall 20 series. Make sure that all the walls were smooth, especially from the outside. For strength necessarily promazhte glue all joints from the inside.
Stick to the perimeter matches with the inner side of one match (8). Now we need to make the second tier of the tower, to do this, glue one match with each side, but not to the top and to the outside sidewall. Thus, the upper row of walls will be wider by 1 match.
When the glue dries, cut off the protruding part of the needle files and smooth off the end.
Construct the second tier of the tower. For this to the existing base declate 9 series of matches. Please note that as with the creation of the first layer, the matches should form the overlap. When you build the second tier with a height of 5 matches, make Windows: for this is the whole match, use 2 pieces of a smaller length. Glue them so that the wall is formed at intervals. The height of the Windows should be 2 series of matches.
Please note that the attractiveness of the finished product depends largely on how carefully it is made. Therefore, use only smooth matches of the same length, and select an adhesive that does not leave stains and traces.
The finished tower out of matches you can decorate according to your taste, this will suit a small sea stones, beads, beads, LEDs, etc. Let your imagination run wild, and, joining and combining different materials, you can build not just a tower, but the real castles and military fortresses.
Advice 2: How to build a Church out of matches
From the usual matches , you can make a variety of shapes, from simple small houses to complex and multi-tiered buildings. Most match designs is a simple cube, from which are made all the matchbox houses.

Having mastered the manufacture of such blocks, you will be able to make a Church out of matches, which will decorate your home collection or a great gift for friends. For construction prepare a large number of matchesto make 22 of them die.
Technology folding cube is very simple, it does not require glue. Need to take two matches and put them parallel to each other. Perpendicular to the first two lay the six matchsticks to make a square platform. On top of this layer, make another layer of six matches, directing their heads in the opposite direction. Make as many rows match as necessary in order to make a cube.
Fabricate twenty two dice of equal size, and in the side wall of each cube then insert a number of matches, setting them along the third row of the wall. Each match break off at a certain length so that the number was increasing.
Similarly, lay a match across the cube, placing increasing length. Side match pull up and press them using the already inserted matchesand then start installing the roof. Shrink item and insert the tile.
Make four parts with part tiled roof – two have to look in one direction and two in another. Extend the roof and connect them with other parts that do not have tiled roofs.
Three cubes of matches connect vertically, using a matchstick, is inserted between the cubes. In the blank insert three cubes connected above, and then shrink the design and finish the roof by installing two dice with the tile. Connect the cubes of the roof with each other and combine them with the main item.
Two dice with the roof tiles set just above, connecting them with another cube at the bottom. You should now have the framework of the Church. Two dice with the roof, you will need to build the two towers. With broken heads of matches to make on the towers window.
Attach the tower to the walls of the Church, making matches on the sides. Decorate design designs from match heads.
