Creating Your Own Doll House

Posted on May 24th, 2016 by admin in Toy Dolls House Ideas, Toy Dolls House Resources

Playing with dolls’ houses is a fun activity for young girls because they can decorate with nice little furniture pieces and they can also play with small dolls, playing pretend in the miniature version of their own world.

Dolls’ houses can be expensive, especially those that are considered as highly collectibles. However, your little girl does not necessarily need to play with an expensive and antique doll house. You can buy something that is fun and functional yet very affordable. Or better yet, you can build your own doll house. If you want to know some of the basic steps for creating your own doll house, check out the list below.

  • You should first make a design plan before creating the doll house. You have to think the kind of doll house that you should build. Is it a bungalow or a two-storey doll house? Whatever it is, make sure that you make a workable design plan.
  • Once you have finished the plan, gather the materials that you will need. It would be better to use ¾ inch thick plywood that is sturdy. Get your carpentry tools ready like hammer, saw, ruler, pencil, nails, sandpaper, paint, brush, drills, and so on.

  • Start creating your own doll house with the design plan that you have made yourself. If you need to do some adjustments, you can do so. Just make sure that it will not veer away too much from your original plan.
  • Once you are done hammering away and putting all the pieces together, check the doll house for stability. Shake it slightly and make sure that all the walls and parts are secured firmly.
  • Smoothen the edges with sand paper and apply paint with your preferred color. Let it dry. Once dry, the doll house is now ready for your little princess to play with.
