How to Make a Doll Bunk Bed with Cardboard & Paper Mache





Hey everyone, I made this awhile ago, but I don't think I ever posted it.

Materials Needed: 
cardboard
paper mache mix
paint
fabric
sponges


cut 4 pieces of cardboard 3" x 11"
this will be your headboard and footboard
glue 2 pieces together to make it stronger



cut 4 pieces of cardboard 3" x 9" 
this will be your mattress base
at 9" the dolls can only lie in bed when legs bent, if you want 
to lie them flat at another 2" so cut 3" x 9" pieces
glue 2 pieces together to make it stronger



on my bunk beds I wanted to add a rectangular hole on the footboard 
and headboard, make them any size you want, but before cutting
decide where your mattress bases are going to be glued...and just
cut underneath one and above the other like picture below





 time to paper mache
you can skip this step and cover it with paper or paint





now its ready to paint



glue sponges together to make one long one
cover with fabric 
its up to you if you want to glue mattress to base


the ladder
use coffee stir sticks
cut 2 long ones same size
lay them side by side and cut smaller pieces for steps



glue steps onto ladder than paint it


easy peasy :)
