The Dollhouse Project

Welcome to The Dollhouse Project!  This is where we will document the process of creating a dollhouse from scratch.  Follow along to create your own dollhouse.

In today’s The Dollhouse Project post you will learn how to make a mattress for your dolls.  This is a fairly easy project that anyone can do!

Supplies:

  • Glue (I used tacky glue)
  • Felt*
  • Cardboard
  • Fabric*
  1.  To get started, cut the cardboard to the appropriate size for your dolls.

2.  Cut the felt to the size of the cardboard but, with some extra room, roughly one inch.IMG_1887.jpg

3.  Now, lay the cardboard onto the felt and center it.  Apply glue to the edges paying special attention to the corners.  Push the felt firmly onto the cardboard until the glue is fairly dry.

4.  Repeat steps 2-3 one more time.  This is what the mattress will look like after you have two layers of felt on it.IMG_1891

5.  It is now time to cover the felt with fabric to create sheets.  Cut the fabric to the size of the cardboard again, leaving extra room so you can fold it over.  Center the felt covered cardboard on the fabric.  Put glue on the felt and fold the fabric over.  Repeat this on all sides.

6.  Ta da!  You are now done with your doll mattress!  Check The Dollhouse Project frequently to furnish and eventually create a dollhouse!

How To Untangle Doll Hair

THIS IS FOR 6”DOLLS ONLY

Easy

Materials:

  • Safety  scissors

Hi guys!  Today I’m going to show you how to untangle the nastiest doll hair.  Well, first of all there really is no way to untangle doll hair.  So how exactly am I going to do this?  Well you just have to trim the dolls hair.  Yes, if it is absolutely terrible hair then yes the only way to fix it is to cut it.  So, get those safety scissors, and cut off only about half an inch.  I would suggest to take off their clothes so nothing gets on it.  I would also suggest getting their hair a bit wet.  Good luck!  And don’t forget to like, comment, share, and follow us!
