Handmade Cottage

Hello everyone, I wanted to update you on what I’ve been up to recently.

Yesterday when I was sitting in school, I had an idea…My idea was to turn the little cardboard box that my Sylvanian Collectors Club things came in, into a teeny cottage for my Sylvanians, and the results were much better than I expected!


It started off as a plain, normal cardboard box that didn’t really look too brilliant, but once I had cut off the bits I didn’t need or want, it was starting to take shape.


I wrapped it in nice paer, inside and out. When the walls were done, I realised that I didn’t have enough material to make the carpet, but then I had yet another idea

The finished product:


I decide against the idea of matching, simple colours and went rainbow for the door (I just LOVE rainbow stripes!) I named my cottage ‘Water Lily Cottage’. But the best part was my carpet inside.


The little squares I cut out just seemed to fit perfectly onto the floor. I can only fit a little bit of furniture in, but there is actually more space than I thought there would be. At the moment, the Dante cats are living here with their new little baby Matilda Dante – it’s a bit of a squeeze! I am very pleased, and I am especially pleased that I can finally use a little of my creativity without ruining any of my other Sylvanian things.


Autumn and Winter

I haven’t posted in ages, so sorry for the delay. We’ve been moving house and it’s been my Birthday, plus I just started Secondary School so I really haven’t had the time recently.

Yes I have moved house, and my Sylvanian feel very at home, just look at the view they get out my bedroom window…


I’m not sure they enjoyed being packed away, but it was worth it when we got to our new house. They looked so cute, I just had to take a pic! I didn’t know I had so much furniture either, it filled a whole shoebox.

I have also been hard at work ensuring that my mini Sylvania is all ready for Halloween. I drew some teeny cute little decorations on paper and cut them out. My village looked quite spooky!


The ghosts were extremely simple but wonderfully effective too.

I got a few Sylvanian for my birthday too. It’s always great after the initial birthday excitement when it’s all over, and then I receive a special Collectors Club renewal gift in the post!


Watch this space because my village will soon be a wintry wonderland….
