Halloween, Thanksgiving and the Christmas holidays are almost here. That means it is time to bring the seasonal decorations out. Not only that, but you have another great opportunity! If you and your children have a dollhouse and enjoy collecting, making, and decorating that dollhouse, now is the time you can have lots of fun.
You get to create great Halloween miniature furniture, and once you start with Halloween furniture, you can continue with all other seasonal furniture. Actually seasonal miniature furniture does not have to be all that glamorous. You can actually make lots of Halloween miniature furniture out of items like cardboard and paper.
You can find several sites online that offer printable miniature Halloween items like coffins, pumpkins, and witch sets. These are made in different scales so they fit houses of different sizes. You can use them to decorate your dollhouse, or even for other uses like candy favors or even as party invitations.
You can tell if the image will work for your dollhouse because it will tell you what scale the cutout is made for. Most are made for scale 1:12 but there are other sizes like 1:24.
You will first have to print the Halloween miniature furniture plans out on your printer. You may even want to use a heavier paper or even photographic paper. If your printer cannot handle heavier paper, then you can print it and glue it to a heavier paper.
Other Items you will need
Glue stick or white glue
A ruler so you can crease the paper against it
Color paper for decorating your Halloween miniature furniture
Once you have printed the Halloween accessory out, then all you have to do is glue it to stiffer cardboard, if necessary, and crease it where the plans indicate, followed by gluing everything in place.
Seasonal accessories like Halloween miniature trimmings are what make working with the dollhouse even more fun for both children and adults. Children feel the house is never the same and is always changing, and adults have fun helping children to make interesting accessories.
No matter what kind of dollhouse furniture you have, and no matter how beautiful it is, what really makes a miniature home so interesting to everyone is seeing all the intricate little details and a large part of those little details are seasonal accessories and furniture.
As you can see by the samples we gave you above, this type of accessory is inexpensive and often made of something as simple as cardboard.
Where to find Halloween Accessories for the Dollhouse?
You can find all kinds of arts and crafts projects for the dollhouse at your local arts and crafts store, but the best place to find seasonal items is online. Online is your best option because often the instructions come with the plans at no additional cost.
What Types of Halloween Furniture can I Find?
You can find all kinds of plans online–items from pumpkins to coffins, candlesticks, baskets, and squash. You will find everything you need for Halloween here.
The most important part of all of this is that you make it a fun activity for kids and you can get them away from the video games, the TV, and get their creativity flowing with these types of projects.
