A home for Christmas

We had so much fun building a home for our Tilda friends using what we found around the studio.
The house in it self is an old cupboard and although the ceiling is a bit low it works perfectly.

Quirky is good in our opinion, and everything doesn’t  have to be the perfect size.
This is such a great project to create with kids, and Tilda friends are approved for children all ages.
Why not start looking for the perfect vintage cupboard house and small quirky items. Perhaps your Tilda Friends will have a home for Christmas.

Oh, this would actually be a perfect Christmas calendar project for a lucky child, receiving one small item a day. Why didn’t we think of that before….

The cake is made out of the bottom of a plastic cup, first covered with fabric and then decorated with ribbon buttons and pieces of striped straws as candles.
The doll quilt and tablecloth is sewn using 2,5 in squares.
An old stool is the perfect table, and eggcups perfect doll cups. The kitchen counter is a Tilda fat quarter box turned on the side.

Maybe you can find a tiny Christmas tree outside, use oasis to put it in an old porcelain cup and decorate with purls buttons and ribbon. It’s easy to get a bit carried away, you might need a bigger cupboard or a wardrobe.
