DIY Dollhouse: Build and Decorate a Toy House Using Everyday Materials is a great book for anyone who wants to decorate a dollhouse affordably. When I was little, I had a dollhouse but not a lot of furniture for it because it was hard to find. Like most children, I made do with what I had, but I remember dreaming of all sorts of different furniture to play with.

DIY Dollhouse by Alexia Henrion
D.I.Y. Dollhouse is a lavishly illustrated guide for budding architects, builders, and designers, showing them how to build and furnish their own eco-friendly dollhouse, with an incredible eye for detail.
The simple instructions cover everything children (and parents) need to get started, from making rooms out of crate boxes and pieces of scrap fabric to crafting countless furniture and household items using recycled materials, such as empty plastic containers and bottles, bottle caps, cardboard boxes, plastic trays, drinking straws, and more.
Learn how to transform these easy-to find household items into a sofa, bunk bed, desk chair, fridge, stove, bucket and mop, or even a hot tub for the rooftop garden, and come up with ideas of your own. The photographs of the finished interiors provide plenty of inspiration, and the project is sure to keep crafty children busy for days on end.
