American girl doll house wall

We used an old metal shelfing unit to make an American girl doll house for my dolls.  It cost nothing because my great grandma got rid of it but you can purchase them for around $30 at Walmart or Target.  She did a video and it will be up on my mom's youtube channel sometime next week so check back for more details on that but for the wall inside the house here are the materials you will need:

Posterboard 36" x 18"
Scrapbook paper
Miniature photo frame
Wood veneer boxes from Michaels
Old magazines
Hot glue
Some flowers for frame
Old button

Step 1.  Cover the posterboard to look like a wall.  We used scrapbook paper for the bottom and ribbon in the middle to look like a chair railing., then the same ribbon at the top to look like trim. 

Step 2.  We made the door out of cardboard to add thickness.  We covered it in scrapbook paper, cut rectangles out of matching paper as the wall and made door accents.  The door looks similar to our own house front door.  The half circle on top was cut in a background paper of black, then we cut the image out of a magazine to look like the sky, those pieces were cut into 6 equal parts to look as though the window had trims around each window.  Then we added the button to look like a doorknob.  Adhere door to posterboard.

Step 3.   The miniature frame we cut a picture of the Eiffel tower out of it and glued it to the frame then I covered the top in flowers for a pretty accent and I covered the Eiffel tower image in glossy accents to look like real glass.  Adhere to posterboard with hot glue

Step 4.  The wood veneer boxes had wood veneers in for scrapbooking, I took them out and put them in a different storage case.  We painted the boxes black and then we found images from a magazine to look like a skyline view and we cut little strips of papers into squares that we could adhere into the box to look like the image of a window super fun!  Then we adhered that all to the posterboard. 

VOILA!  Add to doll house and you are done super cute and super fun!  

Thanks for coming to see my really cool dollhouse wall!  ♥Molly
