DIY Wooden Travel Dollhouse

Hey there makers! I am stopping by today to share a great summer project with you. With all the summer vacationing and trips, I thought this DIY Wooden Travel Dollhouse would be great for little girls! Using a We Made It Jennifer Garner kit and a few craft supplies, you can make one too.

This wooden treasure box has 3 separate compartments and a sliding, transparent lid. After we decided to turn it into a travel dollhouse, we collected scrapbook paper, felt, pom poms, knobs, trim, Mod Podge, hot glue, a tape measure/ruler, scissors or paper cutter, etc. and got to work.

We measured out the compartments, cut the paper and felt to fit, and Mod Podged or hot glued them into place. Then we added trim and knobs- also known as crown molding and chandeliers in dollhouse world. Using wooden pieces and a pom pom, we made a table and a potted plant to accessorize. Our peg dolls were ready to play! We made a bedroom, a ballroom, and a garden for Cinderella and Prince Charming.

Everything fits nice and neat inside with the lid on, making it easy for travel.

My daughter has had so much fun playing with her DIY Wooden Travel Dollhouse. We can’t wait to take it on our next road trip and our next camping trip we have planned. It’s also the perfect size for her Disney Princess Magiclip dolls, which have been visiting the dollhouse too.

I have a feeling that this dollhouse will be getting LOTS of play!
