How to make Miniature Projects Doll House Scenery Tutorial
What is 1:12 scale? This is the most common size of doll house items, where 1" (inch) equals 1' (foot) of a real life item. For example, a foot long sub or baguette would be recreated as one inch. You can figure out how big to create your doll house item by measuring the real life item in inches, and dividing it by 12. Such as my 48" wide dining table divided by 12 is 4, so I would make a 4" wide miniature table.
This tutorial used "Flower Soft" brand colored foam particles, floral wires, wooden flower pot shape, acrylic paint, x-acto knife/blade, paper, optional paper punches (or you can use a die cutter or small detail scissors to create leaf shapes) and any tacky pva thick white glue that dries clear such as Elmer's.
Flower Soft also makes a great center for your paper punched flowers. The bottom left flower bunch uses the regular size, and the poppies in the upper right use the ultra fine flower soft in a variety of colors.
