Doll House Roof Idea

March 11, 2014

So I had this grand idea about making a shingle roof for our doll house from pine cone scales.  I've been pondering it for a while and I just had to see what it might look like so I could get the idea out of my head.

We collected a bunch of pine cones from under the trees in our area to do the trial.  We had a little helper pulling off the scales and grouping them into different sizes.

The trial didn't involve glue, but I think it looks promising!  Oooh exciting...
Will keep you posted.
