Annie’s Sweet Dream Bedroom
I love working with miniatures and creating little rooms.
I guess…I’m creating the doll house I always imagined as a kid.
For this room, I wanted to create a “mini makeover” for Annie’s Bedroom.
This little room won me third place in the 2019 Fave Crafts Best Blogger Contest.
And now, I can finally share it all with you.

How to make Annie’s Sweet Dreams Bedroom…
The Bedroom measures 7 1/2″ wide, 7 1/2″ tall and 5 1/2″ deep.
- Cut 3 pieces of chipboard 5 3/4″ x 7 1/2″.
- Cut 1 piece of chipboard 7 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ to use as the back wall.
- Cut decorative scrapbook paper from the Graphic 45 Garden Goddess 8×8 Paper Pad* to use on the floor, walls and outside walls of the room. I like to cut my paper slightly wider than I need so I can trim the edges with a craft knife.
- I used both cardstock and scrapbook paper to cover my walls. For my walls…cut both papers into 3 3/4″ strips.
- I cut a small strip of paper from the paper pad for a decorative border.
- I ran each of my strips through the Xyron Creative Station*.
- Adhere paper to the chipboard.
- Cover back of the chipboard with coordinating scrapbook paper.
The Xyron Creative Station* is perfect for projects like this. I wanted complete adhesive coverage on every corner and edge of the paper. (No wrinkles, no bubbles, easy to use.)
Finished Inside Walls
- Gently sand edges with a extra fine sanding block* for the perfect edge.
For the Mural on the Wall…
- I used an SVG file and my Silhouette Cameo Wireless Cutting Machine* to cut and create the words “follow your dreams” using StyleTechCraft Dark Red Ultra Metallic Glitter Vinyl.
- Using the weeding tool, I carefully removed the negative spaces in and around the letters.
- Place a piece of Vinyl Transfer Tape* over the letters.
- Apply words onto the back wall.
- Remove transfer tape.
- Glue the walls together using a good craft glue . I like to use Beacon 3 in 1 Glue*. I used wood boxes to hold my wall up while the glue dried.
- I added small strips of paper on the back corners for added support.
- I purchased inexpensive unfinished doll furniture at Dollar Tree and painted it with White Birch Acrylic Paint*.
- Accent the edges of the furniture and knobs on the dresser with the Silver Leafing Marker.
- I made a small little toybox out of chipboard and painted it. I added pearl beads to the bottom of the toybox and bed.
- Using StyleTechCraft Dark Red Ultra Metallic Glitter Vinyl* and my Silhouette Cameo* I cut the words “toys” and the name “Annie”. Apply the vinyl onto the toybox and bed the same as the wall.
- To make a mini lamp shade…punch a 3″ scallop circle.
- Trace around a button in the center of the circle.
- Cut out the small circle as shown in the above picture.
- Glue ends of the circle together to form shade.
- Glue shade onto a small painted wood spool.
- Cut small pieces of ribbon and glue them onto a piece of twine to create a small ribbon banner to hang onto the wall.
- Glue Banner onto back wall.
- The Deflecto Ribbon Dispenser* is great for organizing my ribbon spools.
- The mirror was made using a small piece of StyleTechCraft Chrome Metallic Vinyl* l placed onto a small piece of chipboard.
- Cut 1/4″ strips of chipboard and paint brown.
- To create a wood look, ink to the edges of the chipboard with vintage photo distress ink.
- Glue strip onto the front of the Chrome Metallic Vinyl* to create the frame.
- I used small Christmas ornaments for the toys.
Creating Annie’s Sweet Dreams Bedroom was a labor of love.
With a little imagination and some basic construction it’s really not hard to do.
