For today’s Make it Monday Craft, I wanted
to show you an easy way to use items you may already have to create Halloween
treats for your dolls.
To make today’s Halloween treats you will
-tin foil (aluminum foil)
-tape or glue stick
-Paper (I used scrap book paper)
construction or scrapbook paper
Step 1- Measure and cut out your cardboard
these will be the base for your chocolate treat. You will need to measure 1 ½
inches by 1 inch for each treat.
Step 2- Cut some tin foil from the roll and
cover each cardboard treat
Step 3- Cut out some paper to be the
wrappers of your treat bars. Cut the strips of paper 1 inch by 2 ½ inches wide.
Step 4- Wrap the paper around your foil
covered treat.Glue or tape it
into place. Choose Halloween Stickers to become the labels. Stick to you treats
and you are ready to give them to your dolls when they trick or treat!
For today’s post I used my My London Girl
Doll Olivia wearing a cat costume by Skippysmom. The pumpkin treat bucket is
from my local dollar store. The back ground is the Yellow historical room made
by American Doll Rooms http://www.americandollroom.com/
We have brought in some really fun stuff for dolls stockings this year and even a perfectly sized doll stocking. Here are a few of my favorite things :) Find these and a lot more in our Stocking Stuffers section.
Halloween is right around the corner and
while I was at Wal-Mart I found the most adorable candy corn duct tape. Their
small design made me think they would be perfect for making Halloween Hair
bands for our dolls. This craft can be done with any Duck tape and can be made
in a group or party setting for very little investment.
To make your own Halloween Hair band for
your doll you will need:
-Duck tape (I used Candy Corn print)
-3/4 inch elastic, you will need 4 inches
per hair band
-you doll to wear the hair band.
Step 1- Each 18 inch doll head requires a
hair band that measures 10 inches around.So you will need to measure and cut 4 inches of elastic and 6 inches of
Step 2- Lay your tape sticky side up and
place one end of the elastic on the end. Fold over one side of the tape towards
the middle. Carefully bend the other end of the elastic to the other end of the
tape creating a circle as you go, fold over the the remaining tape to secure
the elastic ends in place.
Step 3- reinforce the elastic where it
meets the tape with another small piece of tape as shown in the photos above.
Make sure to wrap the tape so that the folded edges are on the underneath of
your hair band.
Step 4- Place the hair band on your dolls
head and make some for your friends!

So halloween is my favorite Holiday, my house is decorated all over and I decided my dolls need a little fun too. I have always thought this was a cute pattern but never tried it, so today I pulled out some leftover fabrics and feathers and voila !
Cute hat for my Kit doll. (Click on the picture and you can see all the details better)
So the feathers are from Hobby Lobby, and the little green spider button is from JoAnns in their dollar pile. (4/$1.00) They have other colors too.
It was a very quick sew, and would also make a cute shelf decoration for a
Step 1- Measure the outside of your match
box on your paper. Use a ruler and pencil to mark your paper. Cut out and wrap
the outside of the box. Tape it into place or use a glue stick
Step 2- remove the inside box or drawer
from your box. Cover the end edge of one end of your drawer with scrapbook
paper. Tape or glue into place.
Step 3- Use a nail or push pin to poke a
hole through the center middle of the drawer front for the drawers handle.
Remove the pin/nail and replace with a brad. On the inside of your drawer fold
the arms back as shown. Replace the drawer in the box.
Step 4- Attach four beads or faux pearls to
the bottom of the box using hot glue. Let dry.
Step 5- Optional decorate your box further,
I used a piece of ribbon and a scrap book slider,( you could used stickers or
more beads if you liked).Add a
dab of hot glue in the center and place your ribbon belt over press down. Turn
box over and glue belt ends to the bottom of the box.
Once dry and secure, fill your dolls new
Jewellery box with her favorite jewels.
I look forward to sharing more doll crafts
with you soon.~ Karen Owen aka Karen Mom of Three.
