HOW TO MAKE A MINIATURE OPEN FIREPLACE FOR YOUR DOLL'S HOUSE


























  • 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.
