Springtime visitors

23 Mar

Easter wouldn’t be the same without the all favourite baby chicks. On our fence we have a mama hen as well, bringing Easter greetings.

We made them through layering foam clay on top of plywood egg shapes – and so are the trees. You can easily mix the colours of the foam clay to achieve new shades. We have also added a couple of paper flowers on the trees, and the fence is constructed from colourful lolly sticks.

All eggs in one basket

22 Mar

They say you shouldn’t put all your eggs in one basket, but this is exactly what we did… like the little rebels that we are.

If you also like to live dangerously, why not use burlap to make the basket and wrap hemp string around some wire for the handle. Then you can decorate our plywood eggs using paint, washi tape or ribbon.

Hungry for air drying foam

10 Mar

We stock a wide range of unfinished products that are blank canvases awaiting your creative side to add the icing on the cake.  Speaking of icing! Here is an example of what can be achieved with our basic air drying foam.  A beautiful way to decorate these small containers, looks good enough to eat!

Welcome home

22 Feb

The hallway is the first thing you see when you walk into a house – even a doll house. Make it bright and homely by adding you favourite accessories.

For ours, we used coloured foam sheets for the bag, the cupboard and the folded umbrella. We recommend stub wire for the handle of the umbrella and the cupboard handles. A piece of suede string for the bag strap and a pearlescent needle pin will style up the bag. Don’t forget the small wooden plate for hanging keys, hats and anything you like.93

Kitchen is the heart of the home

21 Feb

Check out our cute mini kitchen with wooden drawers and lollipop-stick-shelves. The tiny glass jars, carefully topped with ribbon, and the chalk board for delicious recipe ideas certainly add character. We used the cork stoppers from the jars as drawer handles.

And to spice it all up, we hung a bunch of red chilli peppers. Yum!82

Fluffy friend

20 Feb

Who is waiting by the lampshade? It is our new puppy friend, made out of pipe cleaners. The lamp is a small bell attached to a stub wire and the wall decorations we leave to you and your imagination.

Saturday at the doll house…

13 Feb

After picking up a fresh bouquet of flowers on your way, you have popped inside the doll house for some tea and biscuits. Your bike is leaning against the sunny side of the house and waiting for you to continue. What more can you need on a Saturday?
