  • How to make a piece of doll furniture. Dollhouse Washing Machine - Step 1
    Step 1

    First cut your box to size. Take an oblong, rectangular box and cut off one end so that it resembles the shape and size of a washing machine. Through the opening you have made you will later be able to insert the washing drum from below. Paint the box in a color of your choice.

    When the paint is dry, carefully cut out a circle-shaped door on the front side of the box. Make sure to leave a hinge for the door and use the creamer container as a size guide. Then cut a circle-shaped hole into the door and glue a matching piece of clear plastic lm over it from the inside. Now you have a washing machine door with a window.

    Clear plastic film is used for many types of packaging. You can also use plastic wrap if you like.

    DETERGENT DRAWER, BUTTONS, & DRUM

    Cut two small rectangles out of the construction paper. Glue one to the edge of the door to serve as a handle. The other piece is the detergent dispenser. Glue it to the upper left of the front side of the washing machine. The four beads are the buttons and go on the upper right of the front side. Finally, make a drum with the creamer container by gluing it to the door opening from the inside of the box.
