The Diamond Castle - Recycled Handmade Doll House

Blue Princess Castle

Here is my daughter JJ's new dollhouse/castle that I made out of boxes from the recycle, it's "the diamond castle" from her favorite new movie, Barbie's The Diamond Castle.
She loves it. There are 2 little white dogs in the movie so I found 2 little dogs in the dollar bin at Micheals. She is so into this movie it's entertaining to watch her watch it. We are borrowing it from the library right now, but I'm thinking we may have to get a copy to own.

This didn't take very long to make, I used a foam brush and poster paint to color the outside of the cardboard and did 2 or 3 coats so the pictures and words on the boxes wouldn't show through. Used scrapbook paper for the walls and floors, gems and a cheap sparkly snowflake ornament that was also in the $1 bin at Micheals. I used my little handy glue gun to stick it all together and it's held up great. My daughter isn't the most gentle child and this has been tossed around a bit but still looks exactly like it did the day I made it.  She also pretends it's Cinderella's Castle and puts her mini disney princesses inside.
