Irish Dollhouse for St. Patrick's Day
St. Patrick's Day Dollhouse Decorations
St. Patrick's Day is a great day to party, so here are some green decoration ideas for your dollhouse. I've picked out traditional food and drinks, as well as confections, party decorations, and home decor. Be sure to check the links to making your own dollhouse accessories!
Besides decorating your current dollhouse, you can also build an Irish thatched cottage. I have suggested furnishings and tutorials to make an authentic dollhouse scene.
All the miniature decorations shown here are in the 1/12 (1 inch equals 1 foot) scale, standard for most collector dollhouses. Happy St. Patrick's Day, and the luck of the Irish to you!
