Easy Dollhouse Miniature Door Knob / Lever Tutorial
Here is a super easy and fast dollhouse door knob or door handles (actually lever) tutorial. I made some doors from scratch for my upcoming french mansard roof house - "La Maison de Campagne."
And they needed some classic hardware. So here's what I came up with!
These door knobs are super easy and quick to make with very simple materials.
You'll need glue, wire (I used 26 gauge), acrylic paint in a golden brown color for aging, black enamel paint(you could also gloss regular acrylic), cardboard, 2 size of beads ( a teeny bead about 1mm and a 2 or 3mm bead).
Cut the wire into 4 inch pieces. You need 4 of them. Bend the wire in half and twist. Cut the cardboard into long rectangles and cut off the four corners. Mine are 1/4" x 1 1/4" long(6.35 mm x 31.75mm). And cut a smaller rectangle for the insert 3/8" x 1" (9.52mm x 25.4mm). Glue insert on larger rectangle.
Roll the twisted wire into an "s" shape.
Glue the bigger bead onto the cardboard.
I glue the wire handles onto the bead. I used a piece of wood to hold each handle in place while it dries. I also dropped the tiny bead in the middle to finish off the handle. Let dry completely.
And use brown or golden brown to have a little. That's it! So simple and easy!
