Miniature Dollhouse Curtains & Rods
I’ve been building a dollhouse for my kids for the past year and I’m now onto the final finishing touches. The top story has 3 plain windows that were looking a little bland so I decided to dress them up with some DIY curtains rods & curtains.
As this dollhouse has been a labour of love and an heirloom for my kids, I decided to use my wedding veil for the curtain fabric. My veil was already torn and full of holes (I have no idea why I’ve kept it all these years 🤣) so it was nice to find a use for it.
I started on the curtain rods first. I got some wooden skewers and painted them white. I then got some small square wooden beads and painted them too.
Next I roughly measured how long I needed the curtains to be and cut some of the veil into strips, two for each window.
Once the paint on the skewers had completely dried, I then used the pointy end to thread it through the top of the fabric, weaving back and forth until I got to the end of the strip.
Next, I did the same with the second strip of fabric.
Once I had my two curtain panels on each skewer, I then measured how long I needed the curtain rods to be and cut them to size. I just used a scissors to cut the skewers.
I then grabbed the square wooden beads and glued one onto each end of the skewers, making sure that the flat sides of the beads were inline with each other
Next I found some ribbon to use as a curtain tie and tied it on each panel. I then tidied up the tops and bottoms of the curtains by trimming them with a scissors.
Lastly I put glue on the wooden beads and glued it against the windows and side walls (as these were dormer windows).
The curtains are the finishing touch the windows needed. I’m really happy with how they turned out.
