Default Gypsy caravan

I bought a garden planter last year in the shape of a cart 7ish from a bm type of store...when left out in the rain it swelled and split slightly so it was banished to the garage... decided to recycle it and make it into a gypsy caravan for 1:6th scale (12inch dolls,action,barbie/sindy)..i've already started 2 12th scales
..the cardboard is A3 and cost under 9 for 10..but we've just found 12 for 6 on amazon.. so have a good look around first if you're interested..

.. they're not too happy its been swiped from them

..the 2 shaped ends were cut first,a window and split door have been cut out....i used a cereal bowl to get the arched shape and used a smaller one for the arches around door and window.....i left them attatched to the board to make it easier,don't want to spend money on hinges etc....will probably cover the shutters with coffee stirrers to get a planked effect and will make a window frame from the offcuts and use some grill mesh for a leaded/lattice effect..may put some windows in the doors at top still staring at it...

thanx chocoholic,lindap,rebecca and jennifer..

..i was going to put lolly sticks all over it to strengthen it but i decided on the pinoleum blind..it was much quicker to cover being already intact by stitches...so both sides of the front and back have been covered now..just blutacked the large side panels on to show the progress
..you could probably use bamboo mats for the coverage

...can't wait to paint it....
..the wagon is 13 1/4 inch high without the wheels.
..put a trim around back panel to hide the flaps cut off every other flap to make it tidier.

...so far so good with the height and width...it won't be a 'live in' caravan just the type folk have in their gardens to sit in and chill out...

..hopefully shabby chic.
