Plants in 1:12 Scale
My very first mini accessory to create came to me in a flash. The house was empty, walls sitting in carrying levels of readiness between paint and wallpaper application and removal. I had an idea for which rooms would be where, but no furniture, no flooring... I just needed to make some plants! Houseplants are always the first thing I look at when refreshing someone's home. Plants absorb Co2 and infuse oxygen into the space. This will all be metaphorical int he dollhouse of course - but their importance to design made them first on my list.
I started with these cute little wooden pieces found at Michaels. Super inexpensive and pre-milled and sanded - I saw these as planters or possible lamps or end tables.
Event though I am NOT a synthetic plant person in my home - I have a couple fake plants in a bookshelf for color.... I pulled my full scale fake plants out and started clipping. I needed just tiny whisps. Little branches that I could piece together w glue and floral moss to make miniatures.
Now these were full scale ornamental grade blades the i just needed to fashion together with gobs of hot glue in the base to mimic a Mother-in-laws tongue plant. The full scale moss works in here too. Whole thing... 2 minutes.
Same thing with these. Tiny clippings - no one would know they were missing from the full-scale living room. Hot glue. Moss. Done.
I can't get enough of these. I have mini plants in every room in the house.
I used floral tape on this one to make a stem. This piece resembles the ficus tree that I have full scale.
This table top gem is a black button for the base, a white ceramic bead & a tiny piece of a full scale succulent. 1 minute to glue gun...
