How to make an oriental tea set
I am planning to make an Aladdin-themed doll room scene. For Jasmine´s room, I wanted to put together an oriental tea set. Here's how I did it!
1. Make the Mugs
For starters, I made tea mugs by gluing earring backs to two large metallic beads to be the handles.
2. Make the Teapot
A big round bead is going to be my teapot. I glued another back stopper to be the handle. The tube lock is going to become the beak of my teapot.
3. Set the Tray
I glued the teapot and mugs onto a bottle cap and decorated them all with golden glitter.
If your bottle cap is a different color, you can use matching glitter or something totally different. It is all up to you. I'd recommend going through your jewellery stash. You'll never know what you can find.
It's Time to Play
The tray is perfect for my Jasmine doll!
I was supposed to show pictures of my dollhouse already last month but I was too busy. So I will share some photos with you now. When I was a kid I loved all kinds of toy houses, Barbie houses, lego-houses, doll houses, miniature houses..you name it. I have this little Lundby house at my mom´s home back in Finland. It is not a boring house. Sometimes fairies are staying in and there are tons of ghosts that wonder around.
Doll house Christmas tree is all sparkly and silver. Can you spot Olaf from the photo?
Someone is making ginger breads!
I also have some moomin characters visiting. Many years ago I had a moomin house made of cardboard but eventually I had to give it up since it took too much space. I still got the characters. I made them all from fimo clay.
Sniff of course is next to the Christmas foods.
Little bunny is upstairs admiring the holiday decorations. Fairy painting on the back is painted by my friend Janna.
Can you feel the winter magic!
I always try to put a miniature wreath into every door.
I like to call this as the "witche´s bedroom". Hhahha and there is the ghost of Christmas coming down the stairs.
Moomin I hope you are not afraid of ghosts.
This is probably my favorite room in the whole house. It is the green room filled with strange plants and it is perfect for having a meditative tea moment.
Black cat is made my friend Anna.
Those of you who have doll houses do you also decorate them for Christmas? or any other holiday. I hope you enjoyed this little tour )O(
What´s up friends! if this post doesn´t put you into holiday mood you have only yourself to blame.
Tree and all the accessories can be purchased from my etsy-shop.
Scale is 1:12.
Wouldn´t you enjoy a cup of cocoa and some petting time with Crookshanks.
Who is going to get a crystal ball as a Christmas gift?
Tree is entirely made of pipe cleaners and many of the ornaments are pearls.
Books for Hermione.
Someone has visited Weasley´s Wizarding Wheezels.
Of course there must be a picture of the golden trio.
I wish you very magical holiday season!
Yes! I´m all bonkers I made a Frozen inspired miniature tree :D Available for purchase here.
Some of the characters come with the tree. Those would be Anna, Sven, Olaf and the grandpa troll. You can also find some familiar faces from the tree.
What kind of magic globe is this?!!
So many gifts!
I love you Olaf!!
Here is a little video I made fro the tree! enjoy )O(
Would you make a Fairy Garden?
Fairy gardens have become increasingly popular within the past few years. Making one that is uniquely your own can be inspirational and spark your creative juices. The best part is that you can make many of the decorations yourself!
My old earrings that have lost their pairs.
What You´ll Need
1. Make the Hook
Twist the top section of the metallic wire into a circle. Use the wire cutters to cut the bottom to be the length you desire.
2. String the Earring
Remove the broken element of the earrings, such as the earring hooks, and string the earring onto the wire. Then, place it in your garden!

How To Attract Fairies With Your Fairy Garden
People have tried to attract fairies to their home and left offerings for them as well as spirits. In my home country, Finland, porridge was left for tonttu (the elf). In many countries, people left out bread, milk, and cookies for fairies. With your garden, you can bring some fairy magic to your home. Decorate it with small objects such as buttons, keys, beds, broken eyeglasses, or whatever comes to your mind. The possibilities are endless. Have fun!
