There are some really adorable ones out there.. but also pricey. They range from $75-$125.00 plus shipping. So I decided to make one.
And here is my little Tutorial!
Here were my inspirations:
Here is what I did. I found an old wooden plant stand for just $2.
Differant sizes and levels.... Look at all the options of what you can create!!
You can find these at Thrift shops, and yard sales and even on Ebay...I then found some flat pieces of wood.. a few of mine were old butcher cutting boards.. I found at a flea market for $1 each. And another is a craft plaque... you can find these at your local craft shop or here. They are not expensive..
I bought some "ladders" at the Pet store in the Bird section for .79-1.00 each. I unscrewed the hooks and they were the perfect size.
I used heavy books to hold it down while it dried, as gorilla glue expands!
Here it is!
I made a hammoc by just sewing together a few scraps of canvas fabric. Cut the sides with pinking shears for extra cuteness, And hung it with yarn.
After I let it dry for a few hours, I then hot glued small wood branch slices for the steps. These you can find in a craft shop or go outside and have the Daddy in your house cut you some. I bought mine in a store in france, for $1 euro. I washed them and let them air dry. Then I glued them on.
I hot glued some more pieces together to make little chairs and a table.
I then used green felt ( grass) and glued it down on the bottom level.
I hot glued some rocks, and some craft faux mushrooms.
In the End I don't think I spent more then $10 for everthing!
KT loves it and plays with it all the time.
It fits her Callico Critter toys perfect!
