Make It Monday! Easy To Make Easter Basket's...

Today in Make It Monday I wanted to share with you an easy way to make your own Doll Sized Easter Baskets!

To make your own you will need:
-A toilet paper tube
 -Pipe cleaners
-A Plastic Easter Egg
Step 1- cut a toilet paper tube in half, make two snips in the bottom of the tube right across from each other, this will help you form your basket handles.
Step 2- Use your pipe cleaner to create a handle and base shape, twist the pipe cleaner ends together at the top. Cut two more snips in the tube across from the ones you made and add another pipe cleaner. Crossing along the bottom and twisting the ends together at the top.
Step 3- Remove the tube from the basket shape you have created.
Step 4- begin weaving pipe cleaners around the base of your basket form.
Step 5- Add and alternate your pipe cleaners and twist the ends into the basket as shown in the photo above.
Step 6- Once you have added all the colors you wish you can now weave the opposite way around your basket. It may take you 3-4 pipe cleaners to complete this weave.
Step 7- Use a  coordinating colored pipe cleaner to bring your basket handles together and give them strength.
Step 8- Add an Easter Egg and hand it to your Dolly for Play!
I hope you enjoyed today's craft! Enjoy your Easter Celebrations!

Make It Monday! Ribbon Wrapped Dolly Hair Bands

It is Make it Monday again and I am thrilled to share with you a fun party craft you can do for your dolls with your friends or as party favors!
To make your own  Ribbon Wrapped Hair Bands you will need:
- Hairband blanks from Punch Place Plus. Com
-Double Sided tape
Step 1- Assemble all the supplies need for your hairbands.
Step 2- Use double sided tape and line the inside edge of the hairband.
Step 3- Remove the backing of the tape.

Step 4- Cut 1 inch from your ribbon and stick it over the end of one side of the hairband, this will give the hairband a universal look when you finish wrapping, you will do the other side near the end. 
Step 5- Add another piece of double sided tape on the opposite side of your hairband and continue to wrap the ribbon around the hairband, layering it as you go.
Step 6- As you wrap and get closer to the other end you will need to repeat step 4, then add more tape as shown at the base of the hairband and fold and tuck the end of your ribbon on the inside edge of your hairband, securing it with more of the tape as shown above,  trim the tape to fit the ribbon.
Now your dolly is ready to wear her new hairband!

I really enjoyed making these hairbands and you can add a bow and gems to your wrapped hairbands and make them to match every outfit! 
I hope you enjoyed today's Make It Monday Craft and I look forward to sharing more craft ideas with you again soon!~ Karen Owen aka Karen Mom of Three

Make It Monday~ Happy St. Patrick's Day! Make A Clover Princess Tiara For Your Dolls

Happy St. Patrick's Day, Today I am celebrating St. Patrick's Day and my Irish Heritage with Stew and Soda Bread. But Before I put the Stew on and warm the oven I wanted to share with you an quick and easy St. Patrick's Day craft you can do for your dolls. To make your own Clover Princess Tiara for Your Dolls You will need:
-Four Green Pipe cleaners I used Kelly Green but any green would work
-Three Green Gem Stones or Stickers
-Hot Glue for adhering the gems to the tiara or glue dot

Step 1- Assemble all your supplies and take the first pipe cleaner and form it into a circle as shown in the photo above. Set it aside.
Step 2- Take another pipe cleaner and form your first clover or shamrock shape, make a loop and twist the pipe cleaner into place. Twist another loop and twist it into place, and repeat on the third loop, you will have some pipe cleaner stem left at the bottom of the shape, you will use this to twist the clovers on to the round circle shape which will be the band of your tiara.
Step 3- Repeat step two on the remaining two pipe cleaners. Shape the round part of your clovers into a heart shape with your fingers giving them the look of a clover leaf.
Step 4- Once you have your Clovers or Shamrock shapes made it is time to twist the stems on to the tiara band. Start with the middle one and add a clover on either side, twist the stems around the tiara base.
Step 5-Heat up your glue gun or get a glue dot ready and in the center of each clover or shamrock shape press a gem stone.
Step 6- Once dried you can place your Clover Princess Tiara on your dolls head!

I hope you enjoyed today's post and that you have a wonderful St. Patrick's day! Today I used my Doll House Doll Ruby as the Clover Princess.
I look forward to sharing more doll play ideas with you soon~ Karen Owen aka Karen Mom of Three
