This is a photo of my real dollhouse in Florida. It was built in 1920. I loved this porch!
I've been looking at photos of this house and trying to figure out how to make siding for my new dollhouse. Here is my first attempt.
I cut strips of heavy cardstock. Then I added a smaller strip to the back and glued them onto another piece of cardstock. It looks "okay."
Here is my second attempt. I cut some pieces of a free bamboo blind that I have. At least they are wood. They are too thick to overlap correctly. I guess I could use my Dremel to sand down one edge?
Casey told me her friend Jo used strips of upholsterer's cardboard strips for her dollhouse. Another possibility?
I am just too cheap to purchase ready made dollhouse siding. It would be very expensive to do an entire house...
While I was looking at my old photos I came across this picture of Dylan sleeping in the sun.
He could care less about dollhouse siding!
Hope you have a really good day!
