Make a Dollhouse Door

You'll need:
Hot Glue Gun
Eyelet/Bead or anything similar for the door knob
Tape (optional)
Thin wood (something that you'll be able to cut through easily with scissors)
** I'll be using a 1/16D x 4W x 36L inch strip of wood by Balsa for the door and two 1/8D x 1/8W x 24L sticks of Basswood for the door framing.
All the wood pieces were found at Michaels.
Now it's time for the cuts.
~ Cut the door and two side frames 13 inches tall (the door is 13L x 4W)
~ Top frame 4.25L
~ Four rectangle pieces 4L x 1.5W
~ Two smaller pieces 2L x 1.5W
Cuts are done!  Okay, now take your glue gun and begin gluing the frames to the door.

Start gluing on the rectangle pieces, separating them evenly.  Then it's time for paint.

Once the paint has dried, use your hot glue gun to attach the door knob.

The final step is to place it in your dollhouse using your glue gun or tape.



  1. Love it! I will try this one as well. Thanks Adrian!

  2. Very cute and well done. I am so lazy when it comes to doors and windows. They have been on my to do list for a long time. I imagine they will be there for a while.

  3. Just in time for the project I am working on! THANKS!:-)

  4. Love it will try it as soon as the storm lets me out the house to buy the supplies.

  5. Yay, I can definitely use this tutorial. I thought most folks were using photo copied doors but this is gives the authentic look. I'd love to see a tutorial on the black chairs and table...fabulous!

  6. Hello from Spain: this door is wonderful. You do great work. You have a lot of talent. I am very bad with crafts. A pity! Keep in touch
