Hi there! Welcome to DollhouseIdeas.com! I’m Chelle, and I created this website to share ideas and inspiration, tutorials, resources and more for everything about dollhouses and miniatures!
As a child, I absolutely loved my dollhouse and my what are now known as “Calico Critters” figurines who lived there. Now that I’m a mom of three kids, two of which are girls, I find myself falling in love with dollhouses all over again! And since I firmly believe it’s never too late to do things you want to do – here I am, except now I’m a little more handy with the scissors and craft supplies to make my own dollhouse furniture!
Just like a dollhouse is always a work in progress, so is this website. I will continually be adding new tutorials, ideas and inspiration, and resources as I can, and I’m excited to share the journey of our two current dollhouse projects with you!
Here are our latest projects:
The Mini Farmhouse Project: If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to build a dollhouse from a kit, this is a project you’ll want to follow along with! I’ve ordered a Farmhouse kit from the Real Good Toys brand, and am waiting anxiously for it to get here so I can assemble and decorate! I am so very excited to be putting it together with my Dad, who built my first dollhouse as a kid, and now we can build one together! I will be documenting every step of the process in building and decorating it so you will know exactly what is entailed! Learn More Here.
The Ugly Dollhouse Makeover Project: This is another dollhouse project I’m taking on, and the goal here is to take an ugly dollhouse and give it a complete overhaul and makeover. I am still in the process of finding the perfect cheap ugly dollhouse to renovate and makeover, so this project will likely take awhile. But it’s all fun, and if you’d like to challenge yourself to this project, I’ve even created a Facebook group for us to share ideas and tips and progress photos! Learn More Here.
As I embark on these two projects, I will be documenting and sharing tutorials and tips and everything I think of and learn about dollhouses throughout the entire process on this website. Added benefit: You’ll be able to learn from my mistakes – because rarely does anything I do turn out as planned! While I love to do arts and crafts, I can be a little messy and sometimes require supervision when using the kiddie scissors 😉
In addition to sharing my own dollhouse project adventures, I will also be sharing plenty of tips, tutorials, and resources for working with miniatures. Two things I have planned to be coming soon: Free Dollhouse Printables! I am also going to start filming video for our upcoming YouTube channel with tutorials for making various furniture and decor.
So exciting! 🙂
