Fitting windows and doing up the door of the dollhouse

by | Dec 13, 2023

Little by little, the dollhouse is transforming.

This past fortnight I have been focusing on the dollhouse’s exterior door and windows. I’ve fitted windows with craft sticks and acetate sheets and I’ve done up the front door. After reading Unearthing the Secret Garden by Marta MacDowell. which explores the gardens that inspired Frances Hodgson’s iconic book The Secret Garden, I realised that I wanted my house to have some kind of a garden. So, I made window planter boxes with cardboard and air-drying clay and then made mini gardens with paper, wire and repurposed materials. In the video below. I reveal the results.

I extend a big heartfelt thank you for all of your support. I appreciate your likes, comments and subscriptions. I feel blessed to be able to share what I love doing with you all. What are you working on? I’d love you to share.
