Miniature Love Seat Supplies
Pictured is all the supplies needed to make a miniature dollhouse love seat
like that shown in the inset. This dollhouse love seat is constructed from
simple wood craft materials.
The supplies are:|
An 8" length of 3/8" diameter dowel.
Six 2 1/2" long craft sticks.
Four wooden ovals or craft stick pieces 1" long.
Some assorted wood shapes (for pillows).
I buy the craft sticks, wood dowels, and wood shapes in assortments. You
can find them at Betchalikeit Craft Supplies.

If you decide to build this cute little loveseat, note that it works
well with the Girl Doll
and Doll House projectsalso featured on this site.
You'll also find compatible sized additional furniture, wishing well, and gazebo in my book: Judy's Easy Craft Projects.
Making the Love Seat Assemblies
Only a few steps are involved in making this cute wood craft love seat. If a
child is making it, you might want to cut the dowel lengths for him or her.
First lay the six craft sticks in two parallel arrangements, then glue two
wooden ovals (or craft stick segments) onto them to hold them together.
Note, on one set of craft sticks, place the oval braces only about 1"
apart near the center, or they will interfere with later construction.
Measure the width of the craft stick assemblies. Cut
off six pieces of dowel such that their length is the same as the width
of the craft stick assemblies.
Glue two pair of dowels together as shown in the illustration.
Putting the Love Seat Together
Glue the craft stick assembly with the narrow placed supports onto the
the two pair of glued dowels, as shown.
Glue the remaining lengths of dowel on top of the assembly for the miniature
dollhouse love seat arms.
Finally, glue the remaining craft stick assembly to the back of the wood
craft loveseat as shown. Make sure the oval supports are on the back side.

back is glued to the love seat arms (top dowels).
Add Some Colorful Pillows
The image above shows some wood pieces purchased already colored from
a craft wood assortment. For scale, note that the squares are 1/2" wide.
We'll put these colorful pieces to work as substitute cushions and pillows
for our finished dollhouse love seat.
