Creating dollhouse miniatures can be wonderful creative outlet for all those pent up ideas in your head. If you’re building one for your little girl then her imagination is bound to expand as well. She could spend the day playing with her friends and making up daily routines or even something more creative.
Dollhouse miniatures are not complete without a family living inside this little home. Every child deserves to have a family and dollhouses need one too! Usually the dollhouse family has parents, grandparents and children and since no one likes an empty home – the bigger, the better. Like real life families, even doll house families come in different shapes, sizes and colors and possibly represent different nationalities too.
There are several books that suggest how to make doll house families and there are readymade kits where you could just assemble doll house miniatures. It’s more fun if you create the doll house family from scratch and assemble them later.
Polymer clay can be used to make mini models of mom, dad or baby, but you might want to give it a second thought as your children might play with them.
Hand sewing them is ideal as you could even decide what they would wear at different times of the day. Although, the results will be amazing, this calls for a lot of effort and time.
Now that we have a family, can toys be far behind? Making and getting the toys in place is a part of creating doll house miniatures. Decide on the kind of toys you’d like, mostly wood or plastic variety. Wood is more durable, safe and looks better than plastic toys. Next choose where to place them, either in the drawing room, bedroom or kitchen.
Plan accordingly and ensure that doll house miniatures are well-coordinated and built to a standard scale.
