I’m back to playing with dolls again! My doll house was looking a little empty, so I decided that it was time to give my little critters some furniture. Gather your supplies, follow along, and see how you can make some super cute, doll house furniture today!
I talked about how much I enjoyed “setting the scene,” when I shared my Victorian doll house last month. And that aspect is even more fun when with the addition of even more pieces to play around with! Carefully setting up each piece, and posing each figure really made me feel like a kid again.
If you want to put my doll house together, but are struggle at all with the assembly process, be sure to check out this video tutorial.
- Hot Glue
- Foam Tape (optional)
- Bone Folder (optional)
- A Cutting Machine or X-ACTO knife
- My Free Template
How to Make It
1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the doll house furniture pieces.
Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re having trouble with the score lines, check out this video.
2. Gather the couch pieces.
Fold along the score lines of the main section. Insert the tabs of the back legs piece into the couch, and glue them down. Start forming the rounded arms of the couch by gluing the small tabs around the inside edge of the back piece.
Next, attach the front legs piece to the main section, and glue the arm tabs on. Glue the backrest of the couch on, and embellish if you’d like. Attach the pillows with either hot glue or foam tape.
The Table & Chairs
3. Gather the table and chair pieces.
Glue the oval pieces to the back of your chairs. Fold along the score lines.
Attach the table runner to the top of the rectangular table piece.
Interlock the table leg pieces, and glue them to the underside of the table using the tabs provided.
4. Gather the bed pieces.
Attach the swirly embellishment piece to the headboard. Assemble each of the four bed posts.
Make the mattress by folding along the score lines, and gluing the tabs inside. Attach the main blanket piece using hot glue. Attach the small blanket piece and pillows using foam table.
Lastly, attach your four bed posts, ensuring that they match up, and the bed sits level.
5. Gather the dresser pieces.
Draw handles on the drawers, and attach them to the front of the dresser using foam table.
Fold along the score marks, and glue the dresser together using the tabs provided.
Add the molding accents to the top front and back.
The Washing Machine
6. Gather the washing machine pieces.
Glue the dura-lar window to the Inside of the main washing machine pieces. Then, glue on the vellum “bubbles.” Add as many articles of clothing as you’d like, and draw some “buttons” to the outside of the washing machine. Then, fold along the score lines, and glue it all together.
You can also make a little clothes line with some bakers twine and the extra articles of clothing, if you’d like.
7. Gather the cradle pieces.
Fold the rectangular piece along the score lines. Glue the tabs to the backside of the solid end pieces, and attach the pieces with the heart-shaped cutout over top.
(As you can see, I accidentally glued the tabs to the inside of the cradle. Not a big deal, but it would have look a little nicer if you couldn’t see them.)
These furniture pieces are super cute little touches to a beautiful doll house! And much easier to rearrange than their life size counterparts!
Out of all of these pieces, I think the washing machine is my favorite. I love the little bubbles showing through, along with the clothes being tossed around—so cute!
I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other awesome die cut freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy putting this die cut, doll house furniture together! As I watch you take on my more challenging projects, I am filled with joy to see them come to life in your own homes. Be sure to share your masterpieces with me on Instagram (#designsbymissmandee)!
