Karen here with a quick and easy New Years craft for your dolls. I love the New Years Party Favor Glasses that are sold at party stores this time of year and I thought it would be fun to show you an easy way to make your dolls these glasses using items you may already have on hand.
To make your own you will need:
-3 pipe cleaners. ( I used white so you could see how the glasses are formed but you can use any color!)
Step 1- Assemble your supplies.
Step 2- Lay your doll on a table. Put a pipe cleaner over her nose as shown in the photo above, make sure to find the center of your pipe cleaner and then bend the ends in towards that center to make the eye circles for your glasses. Twist them into the pipe cleaner as shown in the photo above.
Step 3- Attach another pipe cleaner at the top left of your eye circle and twist it into place. Lay it on your dolls nose in place and bring the pipe cleaner around your dolls head and twist the other side into place. This completes the glasses for your doll.
Step 4- Bend your third pipe cleaner in half and cut it into two piece, bend those two pieces in half and cut them so that you have 4 pieces.
Step 5- Bend the pipe cleaners into the numbers 2 0 1 6, leaving a little extra pipe cleaner at the bottom so that you can twist them into place on your frame. If the 6 is too hard to do and keep it’s shape, cut a small amount off another pipe cleaner and insert it through the 6 circle and twist it into place. Put 2, 0, on one eye circle and 1, 6 on the other! Slip the glasses on your dolls head and you are ready for your New Years Party!
We love to spend New Years in our PJ’s at our house and we watch the ball drop in time square and then off to bed! Usually we watch the live feed here on the West Coast at 9 pm, then we head to bed early! I hope you have a safe and enjoyable New Years Eve!
