Thinking about making some cool DIY Christmas presents or homemade birthday gifts for kids? Good idea! After all, so many of today’s toys are not quite made the way they used to be. Plus, a homemade toy or DIY children’s gift is so much more special. Make something original, unique and sure to be enjoyed by all. Parents absolutely love it when people take the time to make something for their little darlings, so if you have some gifts to buy for friend’s kids, nieces, nephews and/or grandchildren, why not consider making them this year?

I have always remembered the doll house my father made for me as a little girl and thought how nice it would be to do the same for my daughter. However, I am afraid I don’t have the amount of time it takes to make an elaborate doll house like he did, nor do I have the woodworking skills to do so. However, when I saw this fun and easy DIY idea for a homemade dollhouse made from a CD shelf, I rethought this. I can do this one! (and I did) Half the fun of making a doll house is decorating it inside with little tiny furniture, appliances and people. If you are a crafter like me and need a cool but easy doll house to put your handmade little accessories in, here’s the one.
