Dolls House Part 2…

We’ve got a little bit further with the dolls house, with a little help from birthday presents, one bedroom is almost complete, and other rooms are getting there.

Amber wanted a dressing table with makeup and brushes, I found this Sylvanian families desk with cute perfumes. Amber also wanted a clothes rail with hangers, this pretty gold rail was also Sylvanian families, I think it was meant for a shop but it fits the bill perfectly, and the LOL clothes fit on too.

This room is the girliest room there could possibly be, rose gold glitter, marble, pink and lace. Even the LOL pet is happy chilling out on the bed in this room, who do you reckon is having more fun with this dolls house, me or Amber?!

The living room is my current favourite room, I love the cage chair and the lace rug, this cactus I found in Flying Tiger gives it a homely feel. Now we just need to find a few last bits to finish the room properly.

How cute is this pram?! Perfect size for Amber’s LOL little sisters.

This kitchen is a whole lot busier than it was the last time I pictured it, perhaps a little too busy, but the LOL dolls have just been on a good shop… I think they are also about to have a party with the amount of cake there! The shopkins fridge is too big for the room really however Amber loves it and every kitchen needs a big pink fridge.

This room is a tad more minimalist, which means it’ll be rammed full soon! But check out that rug, I’m in love, it’s made from some scrap fur fabric.

This cat has found her perfect sunbathing spot…

So much left to do still; the pink floral room is turning into a nursery, the bathroom needs finishing off, the living room needs more furniture and then the outside needs a complete makeover…

DIY bow holder…

Amber’s bow collection is getting tad out of hand and desperately needed more storage. I’d made her one bow holder in the past and it’s so easy, and keeps clips looking pretty I thought I’d do a quick blog tutorial…

First off find a frame you like the look of, I found this frame in a charity shop for just ÂĢ10. You will also need; ribbons, fabric to cover the backboard, cellotape and a glue gun.

Start by taking the frame apart, discard the glass and the picture as you won’t need them for this make.

Cover the backboard in your chosen fabric. I went with neon pink lace to match the cushions and toy sack made from this already in her room.

Next glue your ribbons to the back of the board, leaving them unglued at the front so that the bows can be pinned on. I went with mismatched ribbons as I was raiding my left over box to keep costs down, but Amber’s room is so eclectic it will work. I spaced the ribbons unevenly as some will hold big bows some small bows.

Put the frame back together and voila…

Amber’s bows mainly come from Little Lovelies by Jo-Anna, but we also have some pretties here from Pom & Minnie and Supercute Hairbows.

The neon pink looks a lot brighter on the cushion and ribbon than on the bow holder but in real-life it all matches perfectly. The ultimate pink princess room!

I had to pack the bows in tighter to get them all on, I’d better be on the hunt for another frame or ban myself from buying any more bows! I don’t think Amber will be short of hair accessories for a while, these gorgeous crowns by Aurora Fawn are to die for and a special mention has to go to Far Far Away for her cute fairy door, this was key in helping bribe Amber to sleep in her own bed!

DIY simplest baby mobile ever…

I’ve finally completed Jasper’s bedroom area, finishing off with a really simple mobile. He is pretty excited by it, I’m not sure it’s going to help him sleep though!

I started off with a cheap mobile base which I found on eBay and a copper ring, the kind you can make dream catchers from. I then simply tied and sewed ribbons to attach to the mobile and then again ribbons to hang downwards. I didn’t fill the ring as I like the base metal colour and I quite like the messy, untidy look.

I may need to shorten some of the ribbons as he’s able to grab, but at the moment Jasper us enjoying letting the ribbons run through his fingers.
