As the long-awaited warmth of summer begins to emerge, we begin to ponder how we can bring the delight and excitement of the season of sun into our dollhouse creations. Whether you are creating a summer-themed miniature scene, or you have a dollhouse that was finished years ago in need of a little pizzazz, here are 10 fabulous dollhouse accessories that will bring a glimmer of summertime excitement into your dollhouse scene.
Lawn Mower: Every miniature garage or dollhouse yard isn’t complete without a mower. Nothing says summertime like the distant roar of a neighborhood lawn mower. Bring the sensation of summertime into your dollhouse with a miniature lawn mower.
Beach Ball: Bring the beach into your dollhouse with a miniature beach ball from By Barb Miniatures. This authentic-looking beach ball will add vibrant color and a touch of summertime whimsy to your dollhouse.
Barbecue Grill: Thoughts of a barbecue bring visions of sizzling patties and delectable aromas that accompany a summer cookout. Just the sight of a miniature BBQ grill is sure to make your mouth water!
Garden Tools: Miniature garden tools piled against the side of your dollhouse or tidily displayed on your porch are a sure sign summer has arrived. Add a pair of garden gloves and some beautiful blooms planted in terra cotta pots to complete your scene.
Beach Toys: If you are not creating a miniature beach scene, consider adding a sandbox to your dollhouse landscape. Fill the miniature sandbox with a set of dollhouse beach toys.
Garden Hose: It’s time to bring out the dollhouse garden hose! Our garden hose set includes a miniature faucet and hose reel to keep this miniature hose neatly stored on the side of your dollhouse.
Sandals: Casually lay a pair of dollhouse sandals outside the front door or anywhere in your dollhouse yard to add a touch of the season. This is a great opportunity to do some seasonal decorating inside your dollhouse too. Leave them inside the dollhouse next to your front door, or consider displaying them in your dollhouse bedroom.
Plants & Flowers: Go wild with summertime blooms both inside and outside of your dollhouse. A miniature hanging flower basket makes the perfect addition to your dollhouse porch. Add a blooming dollhouse hydrangea or potted rose plant inside your dollhouse.
Camping Tent: Nothing says summer has arrived like a pitched tent. A miniature tent is perfect for a camping-themed miniature scene. A tent can also be displayed in your dollhouse yard to give the illusion of a backyard campout!
Paint Can & Brush: It’s that time of year for home maintenance and the dollhouse is no exception. Display a miniature paint can and brush just outside your dollhouse to show those gazing at your display that a do-it-yourselfer has been hard at work!
