Miniature Dresser and Chairs Supplies

Pictured above are the components needed to build the charming arts and craft miniature dresser and wood craft chairs like the that in the inset.

This is another great kid craft. Children will have fun building the miniature dollhouse furniture pieces, and fun playing with them afterwards.

All of the parts are wood craft pieces, and the only other supplies needed are glue, paint, and decorative materials.

The Supplies You'll Need
  • Two wooden candle cups 3/4" diameter.
  • Two wooden candle cups 5/8" diameter.
  • Three wooden ovals 2" long.
  • One wooden oval 1 1/2" long.
  • Four wooden ovals 1" long.
  • Two wooden circles 1/2" diameter.
  • Two wooden gingerbread men 5/8" to 1" across.
  • The wood craft pieces are commonly available in craft wood assortment packages. Search for crafting wood shapes and see what assortment has most of what you like.

    Consider using this furniture with the Girl Doll project. And make the little girl a Doll House to house the miniature furniture.

    If having a full ensemble of compatible sized doll equipment is of interest, I suggest you see the additional furniture, wishing well, and miniature gazebo featured in my book: Judy's Easy Craft Projects.

    Miniature Dresser & Chairs Construction

    The illustrations above show the easy construction of the miniature dollhouse dresser and chairs.

    This view is from the back side, showing the bracing provided by the small oval pieces of wood.

    For the dollhouse dresser, glue one of the large ovals on top of the two larger candle cups.

    Then glue another oval on top of this oval to get more depth.

    Glue a couple of small ovals vertically to the dresser top.

    Glue the remaining large oval laying vertically to the upright small ovals.

    For the dollhouse chairs, glue a small wooden oval to the side of a small candle cup, and glue a wooden gingerbread man to the part of the oval that extends above the candle cup.

    Miniature Dresser & Chairs Front View

    This illustration shows the dresser and a pair of craft chairs from the front.

    Notice that the small wooden circles are glued to the small candle cups to make seats for the miniature chairs.

    Finished Miniature Dresser & Chairs

    The above picture shows how a completed dresser and chairs might look.

    In this example, different colored paints were used for the basic decoration.

    The mid sized oval was glued centered in the upright oval of the dresser.

    The mid-sized oval was then painted silver to look like a mirror. An actual small mirror could be substituted instead.

    Some gold fringe was added to the dresser to brighten it up.

    A few sequins were added around the "mirror" of the dresser for a final embellishment.
