My August Doll House

August's Doll House project is
a cloche made from 6 picture frames.
I went to the Dollar Store and bought 6 unfinished frames.
I painted them white.
My husband helped me put the hinges inside each corner.
We made a triangle to glue into the top of the roof,
then added an ornament to hang in the gable.
I think it will be great fun to decorate during the holidays
with fun ornaments and treasures.
This project would be fun with smaller picture frames too.

What a brilliant idea to use frames for this project! I wouldn't have thought of that!

I love the pooh quote. Good job on the doll house. I have seen this idea used to make a terrarium...of course my frames would have to be all chippy and old.

How pretty Marilyn, what a clever way to use picture frames. I need to remember this one, you're right, changing it with the seasons is the perfect idea.

It's beautiful! What a great idea to use picture frames to make it!! I'm not sure I could handle those hinges tho! I hope you will share it each season decorated!

Thanks for sharing your idea!


P.S. - I enjoyed seeing those tea party babies again, they are so sweet! Love the purse, and the drinking from the saucer!
