Egg Carton Miniature Furniture - table and two chairsThis is a super easy and fun way to make tables and chairs for small dolls or for a doll house. Children will not only love to play with these, but can boast that they made or helped make them themselves.

If you have the time you can also cover them with paper or fabric and add little cushions, throws, and tablecloths.

Supplies:

  • paper/card egg cartons
  • scissors
  • white (PVA) glue
