Candle tutorial

In the miniature group on Facebook that I'm in, it was a woman who said that you could make candles in cut straws. I decided to try to make them. I hope you understand my description. It's not that complicated, but it can get pretty messy ...
1 Light some real candles. I had three of them but if you want to do a lot of minicandles at the same time it's good to have more. Use a sheet of paper or anything else you can throw away later (It gets very messy) Cut the straws in different lengths depending on how long candles you want to make.
2 Pour some stearic on the paper and hurry to set up the straws before it solidifies.
3 Cut thread that will be the wick.
4 Pour the stearic into the straws. Fill up all and wait a little while before putting in the thread.
5 Add the thread. I found that if you lay the end of the thread in stearic and pinching the ends so the end gets hard, it will be easier to put it down the straw, but you can test what works best for yourself. Move the thread to the center the more the stearic hardens, and you get them well positioned.
6 When the stearic has hardened, take  them away of the paper. Push out the candles from the straws. I used a tool with a small ball at the tip. Then it would be easy to push out the lights of straws.

Hope you found this helpful!

My projects right now

I have made a table and a mirror that I put up in the hall.
I'll make candlesticks and some accessories that should be on the table also.
Another project I'm doing right now is Christmas decorations.
I´m printing christmas wrapping paper, labels, boxes, and other things that have to do with Christmas.
We also have a Christmas Swap on our Facebook group right now. It went really well with the first swap I organized, so now we have our second.
I have decided that I will have giveaways here on the blog for my new readers.
It's really nice that so many people follow me and my miniatures.

Please comment my posts more so I may know who you are =)

Christmas gifts

 I always have to get an outlet for my creativity and I LOVE Christmas when you are able to do lots of lovely and special gift wrapping solutions. One year I had wrapped a package to my little brother and put on a light trail run by battery. So when I would put it under the tree so I lit the same time and it was a nice decoration. But it's a bit sad that when you spent so much time on the packaging itself as you open the package after all then, and then you have to throw away all the decorations.
Today I´ve printed a lot of miniature Christmas paper, labels, Christmas cards, boxes, etc.
So it'll be fun with my first Christmas in the miniature world. Then I can make Christmas gifts thats not meant to be opened, and does not take lot of space. =)

When my son was little and I would decorate his room, I found this castle on the internet and absolutely fell in love with it! I was looking where to buy it and found it. But it cost 6000 SEK so there was no castle for me (my son). Instead I he got a bunk bed with a slide.

But the castle is still in my head. It´s so nice! I still want one of those in my son's room. I've been thinking of building one myself, but now that I would decorate the doll house, I realized that I can build it in miniature! I was so glad I could finally decorate with one of those even if it is only in miniature =)
Mine is not done yet, Im going to paint the steps so that the whole is white, then I put in floors and pillows and a lamp inside =) But this is how it looks so far:
And this is the original:

Starting to decorate the Lundby house

Now I´ve finally started with the interior design for my Lundbyhouse!
It´s do fun! Here´s just the beginning, no room is finnished yet ofcourse, but I just have to show you what I´ve done so far =) The flower in the bedroomwindow is a beautiful flower that I got from Linda in the miniature-swap. The room with the flyers will be a childrensroom =)

A while ago I bought a new dollhouse. I really just wanted to buy some of the furniture, but it was cheaper to buy the whole house with all the furniture in it. I photographed the furniture, but you can not see the details very well.
I'll sell some of the furniture, but I can use some of them myself. I have repaired one of the beds and removed the pink bedspread on, so now it fits better in my other house.

Waiting for the mail...

I bought these things on tradera last week and waiting for them to plump down in the mailbox at any time. I'm so happy because I really wanted to make a copy of my self-designed lamp, though in miniature, so now I have finally found a cheap lundby lamp that I should re do =) This is what the original is looking like:

I had intended to use a Styrolit ball, but I wanted to be able to light it, so I waited until I found a cheap lundby lamp on tradera.
I "Happened" to bid on the stove and sink too =) I only have a mini kitchen that is red, but it wouldnt look good if I painted it, so now when I found a white, so I can finally make the kitchen the way I want it. Now I am waiting for things to come, then Im going to decorate more in my dollhouse that I'm doing right now.
More pictures coming soon!

My livingroom 1:1 and 1:12

This is one part of my real livingroom. I have made everything myself.
The Tv is a picture from internet that I have scaled to the right size.
The plant is made of grape twigs (is that the right word for it??) that I have glued painted paper on to. It´s ok but I could have made more of an efford on the plant to make it more like the original.
The photos is photographed when they were up on the shelf and then changed in photoshop, then I printed the small pictures and glued them on cardboard and painted black on the back and sides.
The shelf is made of two ice cream sticks I glued together in the center.

Fotona har jag fotat när dom var uppe på hyllan och sen ändrat i photoshop, sen har jag skrivit ut dom små bilderna och klistrat fast dom på kartong och målat svart på baksidan och på sidorna.
Here you see it in full scale and miniature =) Its sooo fun to see everything become so small!

Wallpapers and floors

Here is a picture of the first wallpaper that I put in the dollhouse. I´ve also put in the floors for these two rooms.
The pictures is first without lighting from the camera, and then with. It´s so dark in my apartment right now so the colors didn´t came out right.

Miniature- swap

I'm so excited! I have started a miniature swap on a Facebook group. I'm still fairly new with making miniatures, but have seen that others have done swaps, so I thought it would be a really fun thing to do. So I looked at the others who had made swaps and saw how you could do. So now anyone who wants can sign up for the swap, and the application deadline is on Wednesday (the 3rd of October). Then you get to know who you should send to. It will be really fun!

Finally, I started the renovation of the dollhouse. I've had the dollhouse standing in the kitchen for a long time, but postponed the renovation because it was so difficult.
I tried to paint the kitchen but it was the wrong kind of color and it was a very bad result. But now I finally get it, and decided me to unscrew everything. I noticed that it was really easy to unscrew because it was not glued. So now I have unscrewed everything, and poured hot water and dish soap in the bathtub and put the floor plate in the water. Then it was just to scrub off the paper floors.
I dont have time to renovate so much this weekend, but next week I will really get started =)

I didnt got any plans to get a dollhouse right now.
Then I saw this in a flea market group on fb, and now, one and a half hour later, its on my kitchen table =)
So now I'll start renovating it, adding new floor and wallpapers, building furniture and put in lighting. It will be very fun!
You will see the process here on the blog =)

My apartment in miniature

This is the photos I have in the livingroom.
Here you can see the photos in real scale and in miniature scale =)


My paintings, this is part of "my apartment in miniature"-project

It´s been a while...

Now I have not posted here in a while. I've had some miniature projects that I've started but never really finnished. So I thought that it might be easier to make small rooms instead of a whole house at a time so I dont have to think about the big picture and that all rooms must be included.
So now I have a bedroom that is only one room.
Yesterday I started a new project: to make my apartment in miniature =)
I have started with paintings and photos. Now I sit and photoshop the big window that I have in the living room. I'll post pictures later =)
It's really fun to do my own furnitures and things in miniature, and it's so cute with the mini photos of my son =)

Fabric and thread

Today I have been sick. I was out seven hours in the sun yesterday without drinking water or be in the shade.
I got sunstroke. I have a fever but I wanted to make a few miniatures.
When the drowsiness subsided, I began making fabric "rolls", balls of yarn and tiny spools of thread.
I also started making shoes out of clay that will be in the walk-in-closet.
If I manage to make the shoes (it was quite difficult with this type of clay, it probably works better with polymer clay) I'll post a description how to do them so that you too can make small high-heeled shoes =)

I made a dummy that I would have in the craft room of my minihouse, then I thought it should look like someone has sewn a costume on it, so I made a fairy dress with wings =)

I´ve made a bed today =)

Today I made a bed for my project.
I really want to start doing the craft room now, but I must hurry to finish the bedroom first.
The craft room will be SO much fun to do, I have so many ideas =)
Now I'm wondering what colors I should have in the bedroom. I was thinking gold and white, but changed my mind, so now I have to think again.

Time to sleep now, more crafting tomorrow =)

My new blog

I have so many interior design dreams!

I thought since I can not get to all of my visions for real, I'll make miniature designs =)

There is so much fun to build and design all the furniture.

Here you can follow my projects.

Jag har så många inredningsdrömmar!

Tänkte eftersom jag inte kan få till alla mina visioner på riktigt, så ska jag göra miniatyr designs =)

Det är så himla roligt att bygga och designa alla möbler.

Här kan ni följa mina projekt.
