Miniature Dollhouse Fireplace
tools and its holder.
you have 1 or 2 of these little sets that
decorate your mini fireplace.
Its time to think outside of the box.

Time to transform these into

I used to have numerous sets of
these - but I seem to have lost lots of
This was the only pieces that I
could find that I owned. 
Oh well - they are around here somewhere!
 When I saw these
again - I looked at them in a new way.
I guess you might say that if it weren't for
my witch needing a wand - I might not would
have recognized this as such.
Take your
little Dremel sander and just sand off the unwanted
The metal is soft so it will only take about
a few seconds to cut off those offending

Here are the pieces that I sanded off.
And this is what you are left with.
My favorite is the poker - the long one.
2 are the same size since they were the shovels.
And then (what is suppose to be the
little rake) is the smallest. 
 The 2 smallest wands will
go to Permelia's 2 young nieces.
And look at the pieces you took
off surely you can use those parts for
A long time ago I had taken a permanent
marker to the poker.
This knocks off what
appears to be a new look. I still do not
know if I want to paint the wands.
Right now they look a little used.

The little fireplace stand has 2 uses.
You can use it as a Parasol/Umbrella
stand or you can use it by the front door
to hold their wands.
Am not sure what I will use the stand for.

But for some suggestions - you
could use it as a stand
as a wand holder and put a sign above
it saying, "Wands here" or "Park Wands here",
with an arrow pointing down to this stand.
I think that will look so cute.

When you google wands - you will see that
there are many different
sizes and types.
The longest one that I remember
seeing was 13.5 inches long.
Of course that it too big for a
dollhouse miniature wand.
Permelia's wand
will be 3 inches long.
Paint these tools or leave as is.
The choice is up to you!
I hope that you can use this idea.

Thank you for visiting me!
