American Girl Doll Fireplace DIY

American Girl Doll Fireplace DIY

A few weeks ago Our Generation released an adorable Holiday Doll set. It included a small tree, stockings, treats, candles, ornaments, a fireplace and more! Sadly, it’s unavailable online now and many have requested we make a replica of the fireplace from the set. If you prefer the wood projects, check out our past American Girl fireplace project. We still have it and it’s nice! Β However, if you like foam board crafts, this tutorial is for you! Once you get everything cut out, it’s very easy to put together.

Materials Needed:

  • 1/2″ Foam Board
  • 1/8″ Foam Board
  • Hot Glue
  • Craft paint
  • Recycled Paper Board
  • Glue Stick
  • Toothpicks *Optional for mantle hooks
  • Sticks *Optional for firewood

Watch and tell us what you do with your family around the fire!

  • 1 – 1/2’’ @ 11 1/2’’ x 3 1/2’’ – Base of Fireplace

    Thank you for making this out of foam. I don’t have skills with wood working. Do you think some of the wood projects could be made with foam board just using the same pattern?
    Could you make a “Santa’s Magic Key?”

  14. Laura B December 9, 2016 at 4:57 pm -

    Thank-you for this fireplace. While I love your wood projects I have no tools, let alone skills to try them. The foam board things I stand a chance at being able to make.
    Could you make “Santa’s Magic Key?” I’d be great for those of us who don’t have fireplaces.
