Here’s a rainy day activity that occupied both my toddler and my 6-year-old. There’s painting, taping and, best of all, playing involved! It’s a simple way to make your own plastics-free dollhouse. And all you need is a cardboard box (full disclosure – we used a wine box. Don’t judge).
In an effort to save money, I had been on the hunt for a DIY art project for the new baby’s (now Brooke’s) room. I did a Google image search and stumbled across this fun blog – It’s Doable: Crafts, Food and Life. Now, like most DIY art projects these days, there are lots of people out there who have created their own flower art using the same technique. I’m sure you could find many variations of this on Pinterest, etc. for inspiration, but I had my own vision so I didn’t want to be swayed by any other ideas…
What I LOVE about this craft is that it can incorporate as little or as much colour, texture and pattern as you like. While I would love to be able to purchase expensive fabrics for curtains, pillows, etc., it’s just not in the budget. This allows me to introduce colours and patterns into the room without blowing the bank.

This is a great way to organize and display your baby or little girl’s adorable accessories (headbands, necklaces, bracelets, hair ties, etc.). There are so many ways you could personalize this DIY project using whatever you have on hand!

I had a baby girl (Julia) in December and did not realise how many accessories baby girls can accumulate. I needed to find a way to organize Julia’s accessories. After browsing the internet, I was inspired to make something, using materials I already had at home.
