Use two rectangular pieces of scrap wood to build a dollhouse consisting of just a floor and a wall. Decorate the dollhouse with a variety of objects.
- Gather the materials
Obtain two pieces of rectangular wood. Collect the following items: nails or screws, a hammer, a drill, sandpaper, paint, wood glue, a saw, beeswax, smaller pieces of scrap wood, scrap fabric, faux fur, cardboard, a dowel, a small twig or plant, and children's artwork or photographs.
- Construct and paint the dollhouse
Sand the wood, and use the hammer or the drill to nail or screw the boards together at a right angle. Paint the wood any color you desire.
- Make the bed
Glue together two 2-inch pieces of scrap wood to make a small bed. Wrap the cardboard with scrap fabric to make the headboard, and use a second piece of fabric or a patch of faux fur to create a blanket.
- Add a small plant
Saw off a small piece of a dowel. Sand it, coat it with beeswax, and drill a hole in one end. Place a tiny twig or plant in the hole.
- Hang the pictures
Glue children's miniature drawings or photos to the wall surface to create the illusion of artwork in the dollhouse.
- Cut a rug
Shape another piece of scrap fabric or faux fur into a small rectangle or circle to create a rug. If you prefer, use rug samples.
- Populate the dollhouse
Fill the dollhouse with tiny dolls, and prepare to play.
