First, determine the size of the dolls for which you are making a new house. This approach is necessary in order to make it easier to assess the extent of construction. The easiest way to make a dollhouse is to make use of an old cardboard box. The walls of the box must be wallpapered or painted.
Remove one of the walls of the box or you can cut off the top part to make it look more like a house. If the size of the box is big, try to make a partition with pieces of cardboard. To do this, carefully glue the cardboard on to the surface of the box. You can use the stapler as well for this purpose.
Now pattern the walls and floors of the home. You can use coloured wallpaper, piece of thick cloth or linoleum to make the floor look better. Glue the paper or cloth on the floor and allow it dry.
Now start making furniture for the house. Chairs, sofas and beds can be done with the help of cardboard. To make cupboards and shelves, take some paper and make a drawing of the items. Then paste it on the thick cardboard with glue.
Now you need to give the dollhouse a realistic look. To do this, use real objects. For example, hang a broken wristwatch without a strap on the wall above the table in the kitchen. In the hallway you can attach a mirror. It is a good idea to let your daughter help in this stage so that she can set the interior of the dollhouse the way that she likes.
