Okay, I decided that I couldn't wait until next month to do something besides sewing. So this week I welcome you to a whole week of wood crafts . . . wowzers! (Check out the excessive use of the letter "w" in that sentence.)
These two doll houses have been a crazy amount of work. Right about now you're saying to yourself, "What does this have to do with wood crafts?" I'm getting there.
As I was in the process of making the doll houses, I was inspired to make some dolls to live in these cute little bungalows. I wandered aimlessly around Hobby Lobby - on one of my super rare trips there - hoping to be inspired by something. Lo and behold . . . I found little wooden people. I also found wood bobbins and little wood balls. I figured I could paint the wooden people and/or glue the bobbins and balls together to make people. However, after working so hard on the little houses, I decided to go the incredibly easy peasy route that did not involve using glue and waiting for it to dry.
First, let me say that I realize I'm not the first person in the history of crafting to do this. I don't claim to be original. Obviously, if someone makes these little wooden people, they expect people to paint them. So take this little tutorial as a starting point to create your own unique masterpieces, but there are probably a plethora of other great ideas and tutorials in blogs across the web.
