    tiny tiny gardening tools??

    Has anyone seen really small doll size tools for gardening? I have a pattern for the american girl dolls that is a gardening hat and apron and tote and I thought little tools would be so cute in the tote...maybe I will just have to use tiny silk flowers in the tote but if I can find tools I'd like that.

    Have you looked in the doll house area at a craft store. If you have a Hobb Lobby look there where the doll house kits are. Good luck.

    ​I have seen mini gardening tools at my $ store but I think they would be too big. They are the ones about 6 inches long for container gardening?

    Here is a tute to make your own. http://miniatures.about.com/od/dollh...ss/shovels.htm
    It would be a bit of work, but you could make them whatever size you want.

    Doll Houses come in different scales ... so you would just need to get the right scale for your doll size.


    Yesterday in the $ $tore there was a metal back scratcher that'd probably be the right size for a a rake. It telescoped out and when collapsed was about the size of a razor.

    I have found 5" gardening tools at Micheal's craft store and Ben Franklin's in the section where unpainted small wooden spools and candle cups are found. I made a wind chime from them and I have 1pkg. left if you would like a pic of them, just let me know and I will post it. The pkg I have left is a shovel, hoe and pitch fork.
