      Cardboard Crafting: DIY Dollhouse

      DIY Dollhouse – cardboard crafting to inspire play

      This is the first cardboard construction and papier mache project I’ve done in a while – I’ve returned to centre :)

      DIY cardboard dollshouse

      Here’s what you need to make:
      – Shoeboxes
      – Newspaper
      – Cellotape
      – Papier mache mix
      – Paint (I used a tested pot of household emulsion)
      – Scrapbooking paper or wallpaper scraps
      – Craft glue

      -
      First slot the shoeboxes together and tape them securely together. The number of shoeboxes you have will determine the shape and configuration of your contemporary flatroof house – you might want to go three stories high!

      Add one layer of paper mache to bind the structure together, and leave it to dry.

      I like using household emulsion to paint papier mache structures as it covers in just one coat and dries to a lovely matt finish.

      For the inside walls and floors I asked MissMolly to pick out what she wanted from paper scrapbooking books – after all it was her house and her toys had to feel at home there – and I glued the paper into position with standard craft glue.

      The Shoebox House has become an welcomed annex for the grandparent dolls to live in beside the dollhouse Molly got for Christmas – everyone is happy!!
