Cork And Match-box Furniture

Source: What Shall We Do Now?: Five Hundred Games And Pastimes

This furniture, if very neatly made, can be very successful, and it
costs almost nothing. Plain pins will do quite well, although the
fancy ones are much prettier. Velvet or thin cloth is best for the
dining-room furniture; silk for the drawing room; and some
light-colored cotton material for the bedrooms.


You will need--

Several good-sized corks, or pickle corks, for the larger things.
Some pieces of fancy silk or velvet.
A number of strong pins of different sizes. (The fancy pins with
large white, black, and colored heads are best.)
Some wool, silk, or tinsel which will go well with the silk or
A strong needle and a spool of cotton.
