DIY Princess Furniture

Remember my Princess Peg Dolls? Well, they're in need of a place to live and some furniture. I decided to start with a bed horribly uncomfortable to real princesses everywhere ;-)

Princess and the Pea Bed!

What you need:
  • Some wooden hearts (.25 at Michael's, AC Moore, or Joanne's Fabric) with one of them slightly sawed off at the bottom
  • A variety of felt and fun foam (both available at the Dollar Tree)
  • Some Popsicle sticks
  • One green bead
  • Hot Glue

Start by gluing your green bead "pea" to one of your Popsicle sticks. Then connect the 2 sticks with your first pieces of fun foam for the base of your bed as shown.

Now just keep gluing on sheet after sheet of your desired arrangement of fun foam and felt rectangles. I think the story indicates 20 mattresses and 20 blankets. I had a total of 30 something.

When you've reached your desired height, finish it off with a felt blanket and pillow. Last, glue on the hearts for your head and foot board, and decorate as desired! Voila! A Princess and the Pea bed that you made yourself!

Ok, gotta go. Lots of more princesses, furniture, and castles to work on ;-)
