This week i watched a video from Made By Joel and thought, i can so make one of those a bit doggy in comparison but its not like my boy is going to play with a dolls house a lot. So out came the box we had picked up at the local hardware store, its a habit of flynns to choose a box at each visit. we go there a lot because, my husband is obsessed with the hardware shop, and because we have a house in need of major revamping, so box collecting is part of motivating flynn to enjoy the frequent trips. Anyway i put christmas paper up for wallpaper. Popped a paint chip up for a window (i collect paint chips im always daydreaming about painting this house) some napkin for curtains, bit of cardboard cut and rolled into a fancy lantern light. A bit of egg carton and fabric scraps made a bed, another fabric scrap made a carpet. some bottle cap and cardboard for chairs, peanut butter lid table. Cut one end off a water cracker box with cut in one side for doors made a great wardrobe. A tissue box and some cardboard made a garage, a must for any blokes house. Cut out some dvd adds for artworks on the wall. And randomly plonked a couple of tubes above the garage, rain water tanks??? or whatever.
