Holiday Decor for a Dollhouse
Deck the Miniature Halls!
I once had a friend that turned barrister bookcases into dollhouse rooms. She even had one decorated for Christmas complete with a tree with a popcorn garland. If you love to decorate for the holidays in a miniature way, you will enjoy some of the tiny Christmas and Hanukkah decor I have found. If you can, try and leave at least one dollhouse room decorated so you can see the cheer all year long.
A lot of the cuteness was found on Etsy. Most of the decorations are handmade by artisans who love what they do.

The holiday miniatures shown her are "felted". This is a relative new craft to me; felting is the art of taking wool fiber and creating something beautiful. This fabric craft was born from an ancient tradition of creating a strong and sturdy, non-woven fabric from wool. The artist on Etsy created strong and sturdy miniatures by felting. I adore the soft--yet sturdy--tree and packages.

Dollhouse Fireplace Christmas Garland
I wish decorating my home for the holidays could be as simple as just ordering an evergreen garland. I love the elegant look of a well decorated fireplace mantel during the holiday season. Usually, the fireplace is the focal point of a room and can make a room cozy. Imagine a pair of black boots dangling inside the fireplace. Could it be Santa Clause?
