HI,
My husband made a house with multiple windows from a big box (that was for a recliner) for my almost 5yr old son.  We would like to decorate and looking for some ideas.
TIA

Curtains? Garden? Or a playground or treehouse in the garden? Huh

No it is just shipping box turned house for pretend play for my son.  It is for indoor use.

Wallpaper the inside with a cheap roll-end?

You can make very sturdy play furniture from milk/juice cartons - rinse them out, trim the top making a long flap so they can be closed square, stuff with old newspaper and stick them together with duct tape or packaging tape. The teaching assistant at my last job (a preschool) made a table and 2 little armchairs that turned out to be the kid's favourite toys.

Oh sorry. I obviously misunderstood. I thought it was a model house.  Embarrassed
