I would think you could make the really cute twig furniture for the dolls by using green twigs and tying them together with wire or rope then once each piece is dried into the shapes you need. Glue or nail the separate pieces to form the chairs, beds, etc.
If you want a picket chair or bed you could use Popsicle sticks or tongue depressors. Cut the ends to look like pickets and glue together. You could then paint them or let the child do it.
An ottoman could be a margarine tub that is covered with a cushion sewn or glued on top.
An old jewelry box with a top that opens and drawers below could be a dresser. Just remove the ring inserts, etc. from the inside. Paint and design to fit your doll's decor. Good luck.

I have an American girl doll, but the furniture is too expensive. Any ideas on how to make some?

Check out youtube (look for miniatures that you could resize) lot of great videos.
Use empty cereal, etc. boxes.
