DIY Series - Houseplants for Dollhouse
We know a certain someone who will receive a Barbie house for her eighth birthday this summer.
So I made some houseplants for the dollhouse.
I found these "planters" at the dollar store - they had toothpicks in them.
(You can make them yourself by rolling paper into about a one inch tube and wrapping with twine glued outside.)
Next I found green paper and printed leaves on it. I cut them out and glued them to toothpicks for stems.
I cut a piece of green felt about three inches square, and using a pen to push into the pot, I glued it into the "pots".
Finally, put some glue on the wooden ends of the leaves, and add the "plants".
