I think my daughters and I enjoyed decorating their dollhouse bedroom the most since these rooms were decorated very similar to their own real bedrooms.
Wall art was added above each bed by using wood die-cut frames found at Michael’s craft store. These wood frames come in a variety of shapes and sizes. One of my daughters decided on a key pattern and the other a peace sign to place in the middle of each frame. All of these wood pieces were painted black and attached to the wall with poster putty.
Cork boards were made out of recycled cork coasters and attached with command strips. A black border was painted on each square. Push pins were made out of large stick pins cut down with wire cutters. Ask an adult to do this for you.

A makeup mirror was made from a frame found in the dollar bins at Michael’s craft store and silver metallic poster paper.
A jewelry tree was created from a ring tree found a Michael’s craft store. Book ends were made from wood squares that were painted.
Make sure when attaching any shelving or hooks that you hang it high enough to accommodate what you want to hang. My daughter’s wanted their shelves high enough so Felicity and Elizabeth’s cloaks could hang from the hooks.
A small wood box with drawer was found at JoAnn and painted black. I used a piece of Phoomph with a piece of fabric that matched their doll quilts to line the drawer. It made a super cute jewelry box.
A pencil cup found in the Target dollar bins made a great toy bin. Most of the doll’s toys are from key chains, fast food toys, and any mini toy.
A fish bowl was made from a round candle holder and marbles found at the Dollar Store. The fish is a Littlest Pet Shop toy.
The room was finished with window valances. I added a piece of black ribbon to the white curtain with Aleene’s Fabric Tape. I LOVE Aleene’s Fabric Tape. It is so easy to use.
My daughter’s couldn’t wait for us to get the finishing touches on their doll bedrooms. My youngest was already playing with her bedroom before I was finished taking pictures!
