Four seasons roombox — wreaths and critters

I recently placed a custom order with Marion Humphreys (4Hala on Etsy) for seasonal wreaths to go in the rotating roombox. I sent Marion pictures of my scenes and links to other wreaths in her store that I liked. She made two for each season so I could pick the ones I liked best. These… Keep reading »

Half scale umbrella drink

This week I went to Dollhouses Trains and More hoping to find an iced tea or lemonade set to use in the summer lounge chair scene. They didn’t have anything like that in half scale, but they did have this tropical drink. It’s a bit elaborate for lazy summer lounging, but it was too cute… Keep reading »

Dandelions and summer lounging

Of the four seasons, the summer portion of my rotating roombox started out with the least obvious theme. Spring has flowers, fall has leaves, and winter has snow… what about summer? I gave the grass dead patches, but besides that there isn’t anything obvious about the base scene that really differentiates it from spring. I’ve… Keep reading »

Spring planter

My original plan for the spring portion of the four seasons roombox was to make a flowerbed along the wall. Once the scenes were laid out there wasn’t a lot of space for that, plus I would have needed to carry over the flowerbed into the other months, which I didn’t want to do. Instead… Keep reading »

Christmassy plants and a new cat

I’m not doing anything Christmas-related this year — no decorating, no gifts, nothing. I don’t mean to be a Grinch, but it’s really started to bug me how for the entire month of December (and even some of November!) the holiday is foisted on people whether they like it or not. You can’t watch TV… Keep reading »

Autumn leaves

There are a lot of leaf punches available for scrapbooking but they’re usually too big for dollhouse stuff, especially half scale. I went on a hunt for alternatives and found punches for tiny leaves at a European store named Green Stuff World. They have supplies for wargaming miniatures that can be used for dollhouse landscaping,… Keep reading »

Let it snow!

(I live in California, so I can flippantly say “Let it snow!” on Thanksgiving without the risk of it actually happening…) With the bushes finished, I can move forward with landscaping the four seasons roombox. Today I added snow to the winter scene. It was fun! Maybe not quite as fun as playing in the… Keep reading »

Four seasons bushes and mailboxes

My goal with the four seasons roombox is to show the same scene as if it’s progressing through the year. There isn’t a ton of space for landscaping, but the front door has space next to it for a bush. I’ve made bushes before by covering round prickly things out of a jar of potpourri… Keep reading »

Miniature snowman tutorial (half scale)

I’m waiting for something to come in the mail before I can continue with the four seasons roombox. In the meantime, here’s a tutorial for a 1:24 scale snowman. Supplies needed: Wood balls: 3/4″ and 1″ diameter Pin or thin wire Tiny pebbles (or something else) to make eyes, nose, and buttons A few sprigs… Keep reading »

Four seasons roombox — setting up the scenes

With my doors and windows picked out and my egg carton stoops and paths finished, the next step on the four seasons roombox was… well, everything. The four scenes are the same, so I set up all four of them at once. I recently got a really good deal on some old Houseworks siding —… Keep reading »

Four seasons roombox – concrete stoop and brick path

I recently saw a fun rotating roombox on eBay — it’s divided into four sections, each decorated for one of the four seasons. I have a similar rotating box in my stash that my mom found at a thrift shop. I think it’s supposed to be for holding photos (you put a picture behind each… Keep reading »
