EDITED to add 1970's pic of the dollhouse.
My mom loved to make things out of papier-mâché so she used cardboard tubes from oatmeal or toilet paper, plus cardboard boxes from Velveeta cheese, etc. as the base forms for the Barbie house furniture. The couch even had 1970's purple and brown plaid fabric glued on as "upholstery" that even covered some actual foam cushioning for the seat of the couch.
