This tutorial is from the DIY Three Ring Binder Barbie Dollhouse post. Enjoy!
You will need:
Styrofoam (or other trash that can be folded/cut/torn into the shape of furniture)
Hot Glue Gun
Round, flat discarded item (I used the top of a tin)
Cylindrical discarded item (I used the base of a glade scented oil candle)
Sofa and Chair
Step 1: Cut/fold your discarded styrofoam (or other trash) into the desired shape
Step 2: Cut your fabric out in a shape that will fit around your furniture. I'm no upholsterer and somehow I managed to not screw this up....I didn't measure ANYTHING. I can't tell you the last time I pulled out measuring tape. For reals.
Step 4: Hot glue the fabric around your furniture. Or as Eric said to me (after I found some bare spots): "Just keep throwing fabric at it, honey...it'll be fine."
Step 5: Make pillows! Use a coordinating fabric to make little pockets
Stuff them with pillow stuffing, sew them shut (who cares about invisible seams? Not me.), and call it a day!
I ended up using some little gold beads to make bun feet...just for fun.
Glue your round object to your cylindrical object. Of course, you'll want to make sure they are sized appropriately. Dig through the trash for a couple of weeks...you'll find something.
Once finished, your furniture should look like some version of this:
