Dollhouse Miniature Potato Chips

This week on Trash to Treasure Thursday I am showing a super simple shortcut for making some potato chips for the dollhouse.

This project breaks one of my longstanding rules for dollhouse items since it uses a real food product. I would not recommend leaving this in a display for long term but for a quick display it is okay. Just be sure to watch for insects or other pests that might be interested in the chips for a snack also.

In the video I just use the seed portion of some red pepper flakes from the spice cabinet, this saved me a step because they are already nice and dry. If you happen to be serving a fresh pepper go ahead and save the seeds from that. Just make sure to dry them out thoroughly before use.

I just placed the chips in the bowl for the video but if I were going to place the chips in a scene I would have glued them down. I needed the bowl for something else so I didn't want to glue the chips in.

This is such an easy project and still looks really cute. This is what Trash to Treasure projects are all about. Things that are really quick, really cheap and anyone can do them.

  1. I saved and dried quite a lot of seeds from peppers about 3 years ago, haven't had a scene to use them in yet but they are still looking perfect good. They're stored in a small plastic bag. However as you say if they were open to the air it would probably be wise to keep an eye on them in case some little creatures decided they looked good enough to eat!
