PICTURE FRAME DOLL HOUSE ROOMS

 It is always fun to come upon a blog that is a delight to learn new creative ideas.  Well,  I did just that a while ago and I would like to introduce Joann from DIY DOLLHOUSE MINIATURES'.  Her link will be on my sidebar.  She had the brilliant idea to use picture frames to make doll house rooms or even doll theaters was my initial thought when I saw her instructions.  I would say, the sky is the limit as to what you could make with this inexpensive idea.  I see inexpensive frames in thrift stores, and second hands stores all of the time, even stores such as Big Lots, or the Dollar stores probably have suitable frames, and also yard sale finds as well.  I can envision all kinds of embellishments if you wanted to make doll theaters, using velvet and silk curtains, various French style braids as decorations, making an internal 'stage' for the dolls and maybe make puppets with strings if you put a top on the box.  Sounds like lots of  fun possibilities!

Here's to an enjoyable blog!  And for future reference, the post is Joann Swanson's October 2nd, 2012 post on her DIY DOLLHOUSE MINIATURES BLOG.    ENJOY !!!

LOOK FOR THE 'DIY DOLLHOUSE MINITURES' LINK ON MY SIDEBAR.
P.S.  For those of you who tried the earlier link I had posted, it is now available on my left sidebar.
Thanks a bunch for your patience!  Have a frabulous day!!!

Oh I must run to see this as I LOVE miniatures, doll houses, and THEATRES! I was so happy to have made some little theatres....those things are so precious.

I am GLAD that your son figured out the computer issue! WE NEED THOSE YOUNG EYES and minds to figure those things out! My fourth graders were always so helpful in aiding me to TURN ON a new gadget I had acquired in the classroom: A SMART BOARD....ha.....smarter than the teacher!!!!!

HUGS PRECIOUS SOUL! Anita

Thanks for sharing this. A friend was trying to explain to me once how to make these but I couldn't figure out exactly how it's done. Very cool :D

Hello there my dear! Thank you for coming by to let me know about the link. I went and I so adore miniatures and admire anyone with the skills and materials to make such complete shadow boxes with magic! And thank you for commenting on my theatre! HUGS, Anita

Hi Teresa! I am back from my hiatus and stopping by to see what you've been up to! These are so pretty. I'm always amazed of what people are capable of doing with dollhouses and miniatures. And the money they spend on it too! I find so many bits and bobs on etsy and want to create my own masterpiece!

Well found! I can see all kinds of uses for these. My first thought was display cases for exotic objects for the Steampunk study. Off to the Dollar Tree to look at their frames.

What a really sweet idea, I can see so many things that could be done. I have been posting, but not much comments. We have been so busy working on the Loft. We would like to be done. Have a great fall, Hugs, Mary
