How To Make Dollshouse Window Shutters

Making dollhouse window shutters is a fun and easy project that can add charm and character to your miniature house. Here's how you can make them:


  • Thin balsa wood or cardboard

  • Craft knife or scissors

  • Ruler

  • Pencil

  • Acrylic paint or stain (optional)

  • Paintbrush

  • Craft glue or double-sided tape


  1. Measure the dimensions of your dollhouse windows to determine the size of the shutters you need to make.

  2. Using a ruler and pencil, mark the measurements on a piece of balsa wood or cardboard. You will need two pieces per shutter.

  3. Use a craft knife or scissors to carefully cut out the shutter pieces.

  4. If desired, paint or stain the shutters using acrylic paint or stain. Allow the paint or stain to dry completely.

  5. Glue or tape the two shutter pieces together at the sides and bottom, leaving the top open so that the shutters can "open" and "close."

  6. Optional: add small hardware details to the shutters, such as hinges or latches, using small pieces of wire or beads.

  7. Once the shutters are complete, attach them to the dollhouse window using craft glue or double-sided tape.

Repeat these steps for each window in your dollhouse that you want to add shutters to. You can also vary the size and style of your shutters to create a unique and personalized look. Enjoy your new dollhouse window shutters!
