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!  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.
