Well I was thinking wood (Dad is pretty good with it) but I most likely would go with Foam core for lightness.
I was thinking of trying something base around Maddie tea set but more like a coffee house, something that can be used for all the dolls, not just a certain one.
There is a youtuber called Chad Alan, he uploads lots of tutorials of making beds and other doll furniture, even if you don't follow them exactly, they are full of ideas!
I wish I could Todd, but I cannot do youtube videos sadly.
Hrm, that actually sounds like a good idea Beautiful Creatures!
If the inspiration picture is the way you'd like to go, a lot of the elements would be really easy to achieve. You could make table clothes from patterned handkerchiefs, the mushrooms could be moulded from modelling clay and then painted, the rugs can be printed from pictures from online and then a fabric trim added to the edges to make them seem more authentic. There is also this lady's blog. She makes so many cute and detailed miniatures from basically cardboard, foam core and things you can find around the house. Her tutorials are really detailed and easy to follow: http://1inchminisbykris.blogspot.ca/
Keep in mind that these tutorials are for 1/12 items, so you'd have to double the measurements to get the right scale for EAH dolls.
I also really like the stack of books in the Alice promo pic. Here a tutorial for making something similar: http://1inchminisbykris.blogspot.ca/search/label/how%20to%20make%20...
Recently I picked up this cute little baby cake for my own diorama:
It's actually an eraser from a cute little Japanese shop near me. It was very cheap and I can't imagine it would cost much to send it to you, so I'd be happy to pick you up one (or several) if you would like.
Okay, thank you!
And it made from things I can fine around our house.just need to get the foam for the walls.
I have this idea of having it 'inside' with windows that have pictures of wonderland like landscape..
I'm not sure how fantastical you want to make it, but it could actually be inside a hollowed out tree, a bit like Winnie the Pooh's house. If you wanted to get really ambitious (and your dad could help you with this maybe) you could use an actual tree log, like so: http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/originals/3d/18/0e/3d180ee1e0766e...
I also found this gorgeous fairytale like chair:
Sadly all the trees that we have cut down have already been hacked/burned X3
I think I've seen those around here actually, you'll be surprise what you can find in a walmart down south, or really anything around here. If not, I can always look around online, and I know that shipping over seas can be spendy :)
