In just three more months, Black Friday and Cyber Monday will be upon us! For that reason, I'm posting my first Christmas Gift DIY. This is something that's been cherished by my children for 3 years and was very affordable to make but does take some preparation. If you decide to try it, let me know! And I'd love to see pictures!
I made the rabbit's table out of two cookie cutter tree scraps. The ladder is made with a dowel rod that I cut and then hot glued. I wound it with thick string for aesthetic appeal.
I found a 4-pack of tiny chalkboards at Michael's for $1! The rug was part of a 4-pack of coasters I found at the Dollar Tree. I bought the books on-line from Amazon. The pages are real and can be turned and written in.
The only thing I "splurged" on was this nursery set--my youngest daughter loves babies so we just had to have a nursery! The rugs here are made with cut and frayed washcloths from the Dollar Tree.
I made the canned food out of small thread spools I colored with a silver paint marker and then taped printable labels to them I found by Googling "free dollhouse printables".
Almost a year later and my kiddos are still playing with their animal house, adding to it with new family members and friends whenever they have saved up allowance or birthday money. It makes my heart so glad that they love this gift that I put so much thought and time into!
