- Take some pieces of Balsa Wood. Balsa wood is light and easy to cut. You can buy packs of wood with various sizes and thicknesses in craft shops.
- First decide how big you want the furniture to be. This fireplace is 24th scale but could be made in any size.
- Cut out the back panel from thin Balsa wood. You can even draw it out and then use a craft knife or scissors to cut it.
- Take some thicker piece of wood and glue on two side panels and a base. You might be able to cut these with a craft knife or use a small saw.
- Glue a piece across as a mantelpiece.
- Next paint the fireplace using acrylic paints. You could make it look like stone or wood.
- Glue some twigs on for logs and if you want paint a few flames on.
- Screw a small hook into the mantel piece to hang a cooking pot on.
- Hammer some tiny nails into the side panels to hang pots/utensils on.
- Place it into your house.
