DIY Gifts For Kids: Decorate A Dollhouse
Start with a plain wood dollhouse. My dad built this & now I’ll decorate it. A gift for my niece!
Prime areas you’ll paint with white paint. No need to prime where you’ll use flooring or wallpaper.
1
Paint interior walls. You don’t need to be perfect around areas where you’ll add flooring or wallpaper.
2
Next up: wallpaper! Check out my earlier Jumprope about How To Wallpaper A Dollhouse.
3
Time for flooring. See my previous Jumprope on how to make cute wood floors w/ popsicle sticks!
4
You can experiment with tile floors! Cut scrapbook paper into squares, install with Mod Podge Matte.
5
Paint the exterior of the dollhouse & finish all the details.
6
Seal all surfaces w/ nontoxic sealer. I used Mod Podge Ultra Gloss. Glossy sealers will be easier to clean.
7
Ready for play time!
