My new dollhouse is called Brummies Hollow. I showed you my sketch in the last post.
So here is what I've done so far...
The house is 18" tall x 13" wide for now. I used tempered hardboard for the walls. This is a material that doesn't warp. So you won't be struggling trying to straighten a sheet of wood for days. It is super sturdy and holds up to most anything including moisture.
I cut the walls and windows and door with a scroll saw. I used to cut dollhouses with a craft knife or box cutter. It's possible! I did it for years. But you can find a scroll saw for under a $100.
Inside I did wood floors with Popsicle sticks. The ridged paper is cardboard from the scrapbook section at any craft store. You could also pull off the top paper layer on any cardboard box to reveal these types of ridges. The other walls are plaster sanded to a smooth finish. The trim is Popsicle sticks. Some of them cut lengthwise to get a thin strip.
Here you can see what the plaster looks like after it's applied without any sanding. The bare wall will get some decorative scrapbook paper. Scrapbook paper is a great option because it's usually a thicker quality paper.
