Want to build a miniature picnic table? Whether it is for dolls, toys, or anything in between, here is everything that you need to know!
This miniature picnic table is super easy to build and is the perfect size for stuffed animals or dolls.
Want it even smaller? Just adjust the table and bench measurements down in scale to meet your needs!
This is a great scrap wood project and can be made with a variety of wood that you have on hand. We used 1×3 lumber, but it’s easy to adjust.
You can stain or paint your tiny DIY picnic table or leave it natural. Whatever matches your style!
We originally built the picnic bench as a squirrel picnic table, and enjoy drinking our coffee every morning and watching the squirrels. But it also works perfectly for Luke’s toys and stuffed animals! If you want a modern way for your kids to have a tea party, this project is right for you.
