How To Make Mini Kit's Tree House (Lots of Pictures)


I saw this AMAZING cake -  


and thought I would make mini Kit her very own tree house. 
(See Kit's full size tree house.)

  • USPS box 7.25" x 7.25", but any box 7"-8" square will do. 
  • Cut off three of the top flaps.
  • Cover the interior with wood grain scrapbook paper then tape the single flap securely at the sides.
  • Cover the exterior with wood grain contact paper. 
  • Cut out a window.
  • Using the extra three flaps (previously cut off top) make a pitched roof. Everything hot glues into place. 
  • Begin covering the roof and trimming the window and door frames in Popsicle sticks.


  • (I had square dowel pieces left over from a previous project) use them as "stilts" and hot glue one on each side/ corner.


  • Using a piece of cardboard, cover it in contact paper then hot glue it underneath in the front for the balcony.
  • Add Popsicle sticks for railing. 

  • Build a ladder using Popsicle sticks.



VOILA!!!

You can paint the roof grey and add any embellishments you like.

  1. This is really cool! I think i will make it!
    Some ideas to give it color:
    String some beads together and glue them to the door and window.
    Use a plastic pop bottle cap and string to make the lift for Grace.

  3. Rhonda, You did such a nice job making a tree house for mini kit. AG doesn't make anything extra for the mini dolls. Maybe that's good in a way that way we can all make something ourselves using our imagination. Also costing a fraction of what AG would have charged. Thank you for showing us easy crafts we can make for our dolls.
