Often in the toy store you can hear sighsdelighted customers who, after seeing the luxurious doll house, cry angrily: "I also dreamed of having the same!" Today, such a dream can be bought in almost any children's store. But not everyone or not always can afford to part with a significant share of monthly earnings. And it does not matter. After all, you can build a doll house with your own hands. Believe me, from a small house made for own dolls, a little princess will feel no less than pleasure.
He will not only be the most expensive for hera gift that no girlfriend will have. The maximum of positive emotions she will receive from the very process of making crafts. In addition, the attempt to create a dwelling for dolls will unite all members of the family. It will be a long, but entertaining process with a bunch of creative ideas and incredible suggestions from every household. So, let's get started.
Of course, the choice of the main material depends onthe desired final result. If you plan to create a large doll house with lots of rooms on several floors, then give preference to the plywood. However, this method is rather troublesome. In the case of house facilities for small dolls can do a conventional cardboard box. Puppet houses can be made from sheets of expanded polystyrene. The foamy structure of this material easily lends itself to the clerical knife. The ease of such a design can be attributed to one of the advantages of using this material.
It is advisable to start the "construction" of the house from the project. This business can be entrusted to the future owner of a luxurious palace. Then, proceeding from real possibilities, we transfer the project on dense sheets of paper (you can use a wallpaper cloth). Prepared patterns are used to manufacture parts from the selected material. In addition, we will need glue, toothpicks and material for wall finishing.
The main details of the house are the walls and the basement. The optimum depth for the structure is 30 cm. The width of the entire structure is 120 cm. Next, we mark out the lateral (30x30 cm) and front walls. In advance, we cut out the window openings on the details.
First, the walls of the joint are lubricated with glue. We pierce the toothpicks with a toothpick for strength. And in the wall takes only half of the sharp anchorages, the second part is immersed in the closing cloth. Step by step we collect the whole construction, following the given project. For convenience, all the details can be pre-numbered as in the picture, and on the details.
After the entire construction is assembled,it is necessary to strengthen the window openings. To do this, we cut out from the used material a strip of width corresponding to the thickness of the wall. From them we form a window block, gluing strips along the inner perimeter of the opening. Then between the frames tightly insert the partition.
Lastly, we begin the sceneryconstructions. Given the design parameters, the dimensions of the window openings, we cut out the "clothes" for the walls from the wallpaper. In order for the doll house to resemble a small fairy kingdom, we decorate the windows and the end part of the walls with molding, which can be purchased at any construction store. For wall decor you can use a paper border. The floor is lined with pieces of linoleum. It remains to equip the doll house with furniture and other interior features - and the dwelling for dolls is ready.
