How to make a Bluey doll house

Blue Treehouse hack Kmart

For real life, we’ve found the most incredible hack bringing together two of our favourite things – Bluey and Kmart.

Mum Lisa‎ Villaume has turned her crafting skills to transforming the adorable Kmart Wooden Treehouse ($39) into the ultimate house for Bluey and her fam. And we’re in love.

Lisa shared the hack to the Bluey Facebook page, saying. “This was originally a Treehouse from Kmart and lately, Zachary my three-year-old has shown an interest in pretend play. So I decided to make a Bluey doll house for him! It was so much fun hacking this treehouse for him and he loves it.”

Lisa kindly shared all the materials she used and how she transformed the treehouse into a wooden wonder with all sorts of little Bluey touches. Here’s what she did:

  • Painted in white, grey and a pale orange chalk paint as that’s what I had from leftover projects
  • Made a Bluey poster for the wall using kebabs sticks and a swing tag from a Bluey plush
  • Made planters using fake foliage and a cut piece of dowl
  • Made a coffee table from wooden play blocks
  • Added a sink (milk bottle lid spray painted silver) and drying rack to the kitchen (kebabs sticks)
  • Hand sewed a pillow, blanket and rug for the bedroom
  • Added ceiling lights and a floor lamp
  • Added a few pieces of hessian and felt which I had at home already from Spotlight as rugs
  • Cut and attached a pine wall on the lower level
  • Glued the balcony rails in as they kept falling out
  • Painted the roof grey in Rustoleum Aged Grey
  • Added a planter box to the stairs

And here’s what she used:

Lisa says her young Bluey lover is stoked with his new treehouse. “He’s so happy with it and was playing with it most of the day.”

Great hack, mumma!
