There are many wonderful free DIY doll house furniture instructions available out there. Of course when I decided to built a cardboard bunk bed for my kids' doll house I wanted to construct it within one day. So rather than following one of the many gloriously detailed, fancy bunk beds, I came up with my own simple design, which I now offer to you.
What will you need?
- boxing cardboard [preferably 4mm thick]
- art knife
- metal ruler
- craft glue
|1. Cut out these pattern pieces on the cardboard.|
|2. Begin gluing the two ground supports to a mattress bottom piece. Allow to dry.|
|3. Turn mattress bottom piece sideways and glue to one side wall |
[bottom supports to line up with side walls].
4. Glue second bottom mattress piece to side wall [closer to the top]. Allow to dry.
|5. Glue second side wall to both bottom mattress pieces.|
Ensure all pieces are pressed firmly together and allow to dry.
|6. Glue the ladder to one side of the bed. Allow to dry.|
|7. Now you may choose to paint or draw on the bunk bed to decorate.|
