Wooden pegs + Recycling = Dollhouse

Welcome to our home

Paint some wooden pegs to make people.

Raid the recycling bin for a shoebox to use as a house, and materials for furniture.

Mix in plenty of creativity and a long snowed-in afternoon.

Ta-da! Homemade dollhouse. I am in love.


Are you snowed in? How are you passing the time?


  1. What a fabulous idea! I love the face on the last one - big smiles!!!

  2. This is great! Definitely something my children would enjoy.
    warm wishes, Tonya

  3. This is really so good!! We are snowed in too--some sledding, some fighting, some more sledding, and then some more fighting. ;)

  4. I love the people and their house. They are same people we are using for our metro bus and the firehouse we created this morning. So I guess we are using our imaginations too to pass the time with all this snow.

  5. Two days later, and she is still playing with her peg-people dollhouse. How sad that the same is rarely true of store-bought toys... Even little ones are charmed by DIY! :)
