I never thought about decorating a dollhouse with Halloween decorations until I came across some Halloween dollhouse furniture. It seemed like a brilliant idea; especially for those of us who have run out of room to hang bats and witches in our own homes. Best of all the decorations can be stored in a much smaller box and take up a lot let room.

So where do you find these Halloween decorations? Well you can make your own or your can find them at hobby stores online or locally.

You have less space available to communicate all the details that you may find in a larger decoration. The details is what will make your decorations standout. Take your time when making your miniatures and remember to practice, practice, practice!

      really cute! I've attempted miniature cakes before, they were actually pretty challenging... I thought the actual baking part of the miniature cake really funny.

      Really enjoyed this lens. Never realized all the accessories there were for dollhouses. If my daughter were still young enough for dolls and dollhouses, we would surely be decorating.

      Cute lens. I think that doll is a Halloween decoration all by itself.
