Barbie Doll House & furniture # 2
Ideas for Barbie doll house, furniture, and decor
Rachel's Dollworld - 1:6 Doll Room (Fashion Royalty etc) I didn't think to give this info in the first place: The room measures 36" wide x 24" deep x 18" high. Built by my DH using MDF braced with aluminium angle at the corners. Fireplace from Jim Coates and windows from miniatures.com - I used the Playscale Circlehead Double Casement Window and the Playscale Palladian Window.
Dollar Tree 6ct. plastic champagne glasses ($1)...great for all kinds of playscale projects - the cup/stem part separates from round base part. Add round table tops = great for restaurant dioramas; smaller round = dressing table or patio table; paint, add plastic or coiled wire grid = BBQ grill; a few embellishements = water fountain; flip over & add round cushion (makeup sponge+fabric) = bar stool; round base flipped & glue clear button to bottom = glass serving plate. Comment Please! kj
French’s French Fried Onions plastic container. Don't laugh! I love Bombe chests so thought this would make a decent 1st try - it has curves. Spray base coat of Krylon paint for plastic...then Woodgrain contact paper or crackle finish paints, even add floral stickers or decoupaged handwriting prints; cut cardboard for drawer fronts - can layer; add bead feet; glue on jewelry findings for drawer pulls; add layered cardboard top (marbled) or not. Nice entryway piece! kj
Sponge Eyeshadow Applicators ($1 or less) - using this brand as example. Get cheap ones pkg'd matchbook style - I bought black 1's. Applicator ends as flat narrow tip - so remove sponge. Make: kitchen spatula (thin black craftfoam glued to tip); flyswatter (piece of plastic canvas); if tip wide enough , clip narrow V = meat fork; make pot handles - warm tip to bend down, cool & glue to bottle cap pots; glue 2 flat tips together = kitchen tongs or flatiron for hair.What can you come up with? kj
