tiny christmas room

I've been working hard on the Christmas room box...you know the one I want to hide in our wall, viewable through an installed fairy door and accessible through a closet? Well, it's yet to be installed (but Rich is going to try his best!)

And just look how darling it turned out...


I purchased this room box kit. Before I put it together, I covered the wall with vintage wallpaper from Hannah's Treasures. Even though it wasn't meant for a dollhouse, I thought the scale fit nicely. And isn't the design charming? I just put a piece of wool felt down for the carpet....but I think an area rug will be nice.


Mercedes sent me a great tutorial for a tinsel tree. I used silver tinsel from Blumchen (but used silver pipecleaners for the trunk). I made ornaments from assorted beads.


But this box of ornaments was purchased...isn't it sweet? 
I got it here (along with the slippers and old books!)



Do these stockings look okay? I wonder if they don't look a bit too flat. Or maybe that's because I know they are just cut from a single layer of felted wool sweater? I glued a bit of roving to the top to make fuzzy cuffs.

See that candelabra? It had ugly plastic shades...I covered them with a printed cupcake wrapper, cut to size.


And don't you love that green velvet sofa? Another etsy purchase...from here. I bought the framed pictures from here. And the fireplace came unpainted from here.

Won't it be wonderful to peek through a tiny door and see this?


So excited!

Wow I love this. I used to do rooms (not like this though) when I was a child and this has really inspired me and got me interested again. I never noticed the flat stocking until you said they were flat lol, great work.

I forgot to ask...

Does this inspire you to do one for EVERY holiday? It would be so cool to look through the fairy door and see the little world changing with the seasons.

This very well might be the sweetest little thing I have ever ever seen. You truly are a girl with inspiring ideas :)

Heather said...

This is adorable and so inspiring. I love the things you sourced and plan to squirrel some away for ideas for my daughters doll house which is cute but needs a lot more love and patience than I seem to find time for. Great ideas!!

Steph Bond Hutkin (Bondville) said...

This is really the coolest idea ever, and so beautifully executed. Can't wait to see the installed version!

Angela said...

Amy this is sooo neat! You must've been the most imaginative child growing up. I know you must be an awesome mama, too! I've always loved dollhouses so this just makes me happy. Merry Christmas to you and the family. Alfredo is getting so big! God Bless
