If you ask the girl what gift she would like to receive, most will answer unequivocally: a house for dolls. You can make it yourself. It will be even better to involve your child in this process, which will have a beneficial effect not only on the development of his creative abilities, but also on the formation of diligence and self-reliance. In the current difficult economic situation, making a house for dolls from recycled materials will be very profitable. Do not send to the dump the old furniture, because from it you can build something interesting. In our master class we will tell you how to create a cozy doll house from an old chest. It will be much easier to do this than to build it from the very beginning. You just need to find a suitable bedside table or chest of drawers and improve it a little. So, let's begin. Stage number 1. First you need to decide which dolls will live in the future house. It is necessary to know their height and compare it with the height of the drawers. In the variant 1 proposed to you, the floor of the house is equal in height to two boxes. Thus, the doll will stand in the room, not reaching his head to the ceiling. It turns out that our doll house will consist of two floors. Stage number 2. It's time to remove all unnecessary partitions. Do this extremely carefully so as not to scratch the smooth surface of the walls from the inside. Stage number 3. Fill the funnels, obtained on the site of the dismantled partitions. We apply glue and insert in them suitable rails of wood. We strongly press them, we wait, while completely dry up. You can use clamps or put something heavy. Stage number 4. Once the glue dries, it is necessary to proceed to leveling the surface. Shpaklyuem arisen cracks, funnels and all kinds of damage left inside and outside the chest walls. We hide everything under a thin layer of the specified building material. After the putty has finally dried, it is necessary to grind the chest to give its surface an ideal smoothness. Stage number 5. And now it's time to make a painting of a practically finished doll house. The ideal choice in this regard will be white paint. Most likely, it will be necessary to apply several layers of paint, so that the surface is completely covered. Stage number 6. Well, then! Getting ready for a housewarming party! On the 1st floor of our house there is a kitchen and a living room, and on the 2nd floor there is a bedroom. Feeling of warmth and comfort to this house will give other details of interior decor: paintings, mirrors, carpets, flowers on the window. The greatest joy for children will be the fact thatThe doll house will need to be filled with furniture and other decorations. Such a project will be a good opportunity to spend more time with your children for creative pursuits. First you can make a wool carpet fromyarn, which is glued to the cardboard with a double-sided adhesive tape. Try to make a small library with books from colored paper, using clerical clips and needles. Boxes from under matches will become a good basis for a toy chest: legs and knobs try to make of beads, and the box itself should be painted or pasted with colored paper. Cardboard, patches of colored fabric and fleece will form the basis for a set of upholstered furniture. Our doll house, which we made by ourselves, is very durable and durable.
