you need to know to get started decorating your dollhouse yourself.
Wallpapering your doll house is much easier than it looks and
when you get the hang of it you will be able to paper each room
very quickly. Just follow the doll house wallpaper guide below:
Choosing Your Wallpaper
Choose the wallpaper you use for each room carefully.
If you are decorating your dolls house to a specific period in
time research the period first to make sure you get paper that
matches. Remember you dont have to use only one wallpaper
on any given room you can mix and match, have a different paper
on the top to the bottom of the wall its your choice.
How many sheets do you need?
The average size dolls house room usually requires
three sheets of wallpaper to cover it, one for each wall. If you
are using two types of wallpaper on each wall you may require
more paper depending on if the paper is patterned.
What do you use to stick the paper?
You can purchase special wallpaper adhesive to stick
your wallpaper to the dolls house wall or you can use normal wallpaper
Hanging your wallpaper
First measure and cut your wallpaper to the right
size to fit your wall. Using your wallpaper paste cover the back
of the paper sheet and then place it onto the wall. Slide it into
the exact place and smooth flat with the palm of your hand pushing
out any bubbles. Leave to dry.
One the paper is dry trim any overhanging edges
with a craft knife. Dont trim when the paper is wet, as
it will rip.
