I plan to post some more photos and tutorials soon. In the mean time, I found this cute tutorial on the blog Southern Disposition. Kendra, the blog's author came up with a creative way to make her daughter a dollhouse that is compact, inexpensive, and cute. She has also included tutorials for furnishing each room. I love this idea, the possibilities are endless!
It's been a while since I've worked on the Monster High house, I have been very busy and just haven't had much time for it. I have received several new dolls in the last few months.....my husband has been buying them for me like crazy. I don't know what's gotten into him but every time he goes into a store lately, he heads straight for the Monster High Dolls and if there is one on sale, I get a new doll! The newest additions are, Venus McFlytrap, Draculaura, Lagoona Blue, Robecca Steam, another Spectra and Ghoulia. The new ghouls will be getting their own house. I've been looking for another deal on an old Barbie house and I have already started collecting old Barbie furniture to repaint. The new house will be mostly furnished with re-purposed 1:6 scale furnishings.

The link to the tutorial is no longer accessible, Kendra has made her blog "open to invited readers only". There are enough pictures of the tutorial on Pinterest, that it's pretty easy to figure out how to make your own.
I haven't had time to put into making my own "rooms" up yet but I did manage to throw a couple together very quickly just for this post. I want to make a "room" for each of my Monster High Dolls and I think I will make a couple up as backgrounds just for photographing miniatures.
My 10 year old niece spent the night recently and we made some food for the dollhouse and a sliced pizza for her to take home for her own Monster High Dolls. We used polymer clay, beads, fancy toothpicks, cheerios, glue, clear nail polish and free printies from Jim's Printable Minis ~Playscale. View the video below to see how to make a pizza.
I used the following video as a guide to make my pizzas.
