Make It Monday! Make A Frosty Treat For Your Dolls!

Karen here and today I wanted to share an easy no mess craft you can make your dolls this holiday season. Today's Make It Monday Craft is for a Frosty Treat for your dolls made from items you may already have on hand and it is no mess!
To make today's craft you will need:
-Sparkly tape I used Duck Tape Brand Duck Tape
-ZIG ZAG  craft scissors
-White Felt
-Small plastic cups from the dollar store
-A Straw
-Large Beads (to be the cherry)
-Scissors to cut felt

Step 1- Assemble all your supplies. Unroll 1/2 of your sparkly tap and use your scissors to cut a pattern at the edge, repeat 1/2 inch down, each of my cups too 3 strips of tape. Start wrapping your tape around the top edge of your cup or where ever you like on your cup the design is up to you. Repeat on as many cups as you plan on making into Frozen Doll Treats.
Step 2- Cut Strips of white felt slightly wider then your cup is tall, then roll it together and pull the middle slightly as you place it in the cup, it should be enough felt to hold it's shape.
Step 3- Cut a straw about 1 1/2 inches taller then your cup. Insert the straw between one of the layers of felt.  Top with a large bead and your Frozen treat is ready to share with your dolls.
If you wish to make this a more permanent addition to your dolls food and drink collection you can use hot glue to hold the felt together and the straw with bead in place.

I hope you enjoyed today's Make it Monday craft! I look forward to sharing more Make It Monday Doll Crafts with you again soon~ Karen Owen aka Karen Mom of Three

Make It Monday. Let's Make Pumpkin Pie For 4 Dolls!

Karen here and today I wanted to share with you an easy way to make Pumpkin Pie for Your Dolls with Sculpey Clay's Pluffy Clay. It is very easy to work with so even young doll lovers can create these doll sized baked treats easily.

To make your own you will need:
-Orange and Beige  Pluffy Clay
-A Craft Knife
-Baking sheet
-Wax Paper  or Sculpey Work and Bake Mat
* Lids from tomato paste tins work great as dessert plates!
Oven Preheated to 275

Step 1- Assemble all your supplies and pre heat your oven.
Step 2- Open your beige clay and use half the block to create a golf ball sized ball shape.
Step 3- Press the ball flat, this will be your "pie crust"
Step 4- Use your fingers to fold up the edges of your "pie crust"
Step 5- Use half the orange clay and roll it into the same sized ball
Step 6- Flatten your orange ball slightly, this is the pie filling and press it into place as shown in the photo above.
Step 7- Use your craft knife to cut and separate your pie into pieces.
Step 8- Place them on your baking sheet and bake for 20 -30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
Step 9- If you do not have doll plates use your re cycled tomato paste lids as plates! They work great. Serve your pie to your dolls.
