Wrap-Around Porch Railing and Gingerbread Trim

On weekends, I will sometimes get a half hour here and there to work on the dollhouse while my child takes his nap. I have finally finished assembling the porch railing and the gingerbread trims. The intricate woodwork is one of my favorite features of the Garfield kit.


I had to wait until I added the paper-clay brick. I had to trim the trellis piece a little to make adjustments for the additional thickness created by the brick.

Initially, I had wanted the railing to be removable, but I could not make it happen. The process would have been easier if I assembled the railing before putting on the porch roof, like the instructions say. But that would make the bricking more difficult.
