Story time:


My mom was a master crafter. She loved crafting and had a room full of supplies...it was literally called "the supply room".


She loved making little miniatures.
Her miniatures were all to 1:12 scale.
She had many little buildings filled with miniatures.
She had a front porch, with miniature polymer clay people that she styled after Anne of Green Gables (Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert and Anne with an e).


She had a bakery. It was filled with mini donuts, cookies, pastries, and a tiered wedding cake. It was owned by a polymer clay person, styled after Rachel Linde from Anne of Green Gables.


She had a Toy Store! This one was my favorite. It was filled with toys, all to miniature scale, included little tiny cabbage patch dolls she hand sewed.
There was even a tiny gumball machine.
So many little things for the eyes to look at.


I remember my mom would host "craft nights" at our house. I was about 5-8 years old during this time. Craft nights were about once a month and it was when I was supposed to be going to bed.
I knew that if I was SUPER well behaved and didn't make a sound, I could watch my mom, my aunts and their friends craft together.


I learned so many things as I just stood there, peering over the table, watching them at work.


My mom passed away when I was 16, so I never got to craft with her as an adult.


However, last week, for some paranormal reason, I got this desire to put together a little miniature scene.


I am pretty sure it was my mom whispering this desire in my ear.


I have never wanted or been interested in miniatures, until now.
I was doom scrolling on instagram and came across Hannah Lemmon Art. Check her out.

Her little miniature plants are incredible!

Needless to say, I was inspired.

Supplies Needed for Miniature Acoustic Guitar Studio:

Supplies Needed for Miniature Acoustic Guitar Studio: xTool M1 10W Deluxe RA2 Pro 3mm Basswood xTool Creative Space High Gloss Resin Silver Paint/Paintbrush Polymer Clay Wire Guitar File from Design Bundles Wood Glue (I'm using Beacon GemTac)

Step 1: Laser Cut Guitars


I wanted to do the 1:12 scale for my miniature guitar, but the file was too small and the lines kept burning.


So the guitar is nearly 5 inches tall instead of 3, and this worked better for my xTool and 3mm basswood.


I used 3 of the files:
Guitar Front with Neck
Guitar Back without Neck
Guitar Middle with Neck


Arrange the images on xTool Creative Space (XCS) and process the burn.

Step 2: Glue Guitar Together


Making the guitar is so fun!


The inside layer is hollow, so it has the acoustic guitar vibe.


I used Beacon GemTac, literally because I had it sitting on my desk, but it worked great!

The inside is a thin cut out, so gently apply glue all around the edges of it.

Then press it firmly, but carefully so you don't snap the neck in half, together.

Then close up the back of the guitar with the short piece, with a little treble clef on it.

Place a book gently on top of the guitar with an extra piece of 3mm basewood underneath the neck of the guitar.


Let the glue dry completely.

The guitar all by itself is way too cute!


In fact, this laser cut file is actually made to be a "box" to hold a single guitar pick. If you make the guitar exactly the size of the file, it will fit a pick perfectly.


It alone would be a great addition to the home or handmade gift to a music lover.

Step 3: Paint and Resin


At this point, you can paint the guitar as much as you are inspired.


I love the natural wood. 


My husband plays the acoustic guitar and his guitar is very natural, so I just painted the pick guard silver.


Then I mixed up a tiny bit of high gloss resin and painted it all over the guitar, then set it aside to dry overnight.

Step 4: Plants


Now, if you check out the link to Hannah Lemmon Art, you'll see her plants are absolutely exquisite!


I don't want to spend my life learning how to make little polymer clay potted plants better so this is as good as it gets. 


Still adorable.


I used polymer oven bake clay and some mediocre tools to craft little cactus plants, leaves with wires and the cutest little mushrooms.

The mushrooms were my idea!

I baked the clay pots, baked the leaves and then filled the clay pots with more polymer clay.


I then stuffed the leaves inside the soft clay and baked them again for 15 minutes.


The leaves with wires, I twisted around each other to create more of a stem and sunk it deep in the clay pot.

Step 5: Hairpin Leg Stool


I love this little stool. 


It was so fast and easy to make, I didn't take any process pictures.


I cut two 1.5 inch circles with my xTool Laser Cutter.


Then I drilled 8 holes in one of the circles, in each quarter I drilled 2 holes only a 1/4 inch apart from each other.


Then I used soft 16 gauge wire and cut 4 pieces 6 inches long.


Bent them in half at the 3 inch mark.


Then glued the ends in the little holes.


Then glued the other wood circle on the top.

Oh, I cut out a little guitar stand too--using an iphone holder that I scaled down.


Put all the little pieces together for the cutest little guitar studio!


I love how it turned out!

That's it!


I hope you love this little miniature acoustic guitar, miniature hairpin leg stool and all these little miniature potted plants too!


I had a rough week before Mother's day, but felt so much joy and happiness as I created this. I know I had the help of my angel mother.
