The DIY Wellie Wishers series continues! American Girls Wellie Wishesr Playhouse is well….awesome! But, space in the playroom is a hot commodity; we just didn’t have room for the playhouse. Gradually over this series I will show you how a doll treehouse that we already had was transformed into a playhouse for the Wellies. Today I will share with you how to create the Wellie playhouse rug with a beautiful printable. I will also share with you how to create that adorable bird and nest that sits in the dormer of the AG Wellie playhouse.
Below is a picture of the rug imprinted on the floor of the American Girl Wellie Wisher playhouse. The bird below comes as an accessory to the American Girl Wellie Wisher playhouse; this little bird is a super cute detail to this set.
The rug in the American Girl Wellie Wisher playhouse reminded me of a mandala. A mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Indian religions, representing the universe. In common use, “mandala” has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe. The kaleidoscope of colors are beautiful!
I found gorgeous mandala clip art from an Etsy shop called PickAPixel. The owner and designer, Michal, gave me permission to provide a printable to my readers to use as a Wellie rug. You can find the shop here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/pickApixel

The rug looks great at the playhouse doorway!
I found the perfect sized Wellie Wishers Birds and Nest at Michaels. These were found in the wreaths section of the store. The birds do have a tiny clip glued to the bottom of them; I left the clips in place in case they were needed to position the birds for display. I decided to keep both birds….since I have two daughters playing….no arguing! lol
The nest was attached to the playhouse window frame with a small amount of poster putty. They look right at home!

Love the playhouse! Thank you again for another great printable. My daughter is loving these Welliewisher printables. So colorful. Her birthday is tomorrow, and we are going to American Girl Saturday to get Kendall. We can’t wait to make more crafts for her!

Is there a diy for the actual wooden playhouse? It looks so cute!
Our wood treehouse/playhouse was made by Payne Street Doll Boutique. They are no longer building themselves, but they are willing to help any DIYer. I would message them via their Facebook page and see if they have a blueprint of this playhouse to offer you.
