Video Fairy House Roof Tutorial

homemade fairy dollhouse

I've finally shingled a dollhouse roof with pine cone scales and I absolutely love it! The house itself is made from a pringles can and the roof under the scales is a paper cone covered in burlap. I do show  how to do this in a
video.. it's one of the most "thrown together" tutorials I've made but at least I got what I wanted on video and also you can see this house there too!

I did the video before I added moss to the roof and the roof looks so much cooler with the bits of moss added but I'll say no more and you can  just watch the video here

As I promised in the video here is the post with all the links to the tutorials you'll need to make a dollhouse out of a can here.

Until we meet again ~  Keep building and dreaming!


  1. I just love all your work, I will be making this (Or having a go) for my daughters birthday present

  2. I had an awful glue and gave up on my pine cone roof, and used tree bark, I had a bag from my orchid plants, and only looked for thin pieces. I wish I had your patience :P

  3. Terrific idea I have the pringles cans but still hunting the pine cones,
    Scarce as hens teeth here lol
    Imalso have those large coffee cans to make a house as well gosh I will have to live 900 years to get all my projects done lol
    Cheers Deni

    1. haha YES! 901 years should give us enough time but we'd be cutting it close :) I hope you find some cones!

    2. Hehehehe! This will probably make us live longer then lol
      Have a great day!
