Make the easy dollhouse and beginners miniature projects shown in this gallery and learn new techniques and materials you can use to create your own custom miniatures. Each of these miniature projects has been chosen for its:

  • Wide range of applications
  • Use of one main technique or material
  • Use of materials which are basic to many areas of the miniature hobby
  • Simplicity, none of these projects take a lot of time or materials
  • Creativity
  • Ability to scale - these projects can be scaled up or down for various uses.
