Tips and warnings

  • Before you make a floor for your dollhouse decide what kind of home you want before you begin. If the dollhouse is going to be for play you will want durable, inexpensive floors that are easy to replace. If your dollhouse is for show then you can choose better quality flooring and focus more on appearance than function.
  • Be sure to keep your floor out of the reach of children and pets while it dries.
