It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! This December issue of the Dolls’ House magazine is full of festive cheer, from a gingerbread man scene to create, to our ‘The Magic of Christmas’ feature. We’ve got a ‘50s-style party dress for you to make, a traditional Christmas rose to create for your garden and stylish paper decorations to bring cheer into your miniature home. Plus, we’ve got an interview with Jessie Burton, author of the hit novel The Miniaturist, a close look inside a 1:12 scale hotel, plus interviews with other top miniaturists. You can even knit and customise your own miniature Christmas stockings! Bring on the mince pies – we’ve got everything else for the season covered!
