DIY: Mix & Match Diorama Walls

Diorama Walls

Jasmine is our girly girl and she’s loving her new floral wallpaper and cup of tea.

For a while now, I thought how could I create a room set up where I could swap out the “wallpaper?” I really needed to give it the head space it deserved because I knew it could be extremely useful for many in the doll community.
