Thanks to their grandparents Cakey and Boo were the very lucky recipients of a doll's house at Christmas. This house also came with a stash of lovely pink and white furniture. I decided that I wanted to make some accessories to go with it.

The first thing I tackled was some plates of food. When the kids were asleep I cut out two pieces of white card to act as plates. I then moulded my fake food from little pieces of tissue paper and glued them into place with a generous amount of pva glue. To be brutally honest, the spinach was supposed to be peas but as I stuck each 'pea' down the tissue paper unfolded itself so it ended up looking like a pile of wilted spinach. To make the spaghetti I use little pieces of wool and added meatballs made from tissue paper on top.
Once the glue was dry, I painted my little dinners to resemble actual food – spaghetti and meatballs with a tomato sauce; and sausages with a carrot and spinach.
When Cakey discovered them in the doll's house she was very excited. She wanted to make some too. I set her up with some wool, tissue paper and a couple of milk bottle lids and she made some little dinners.
