Doll Craft – Easy Christmas Ornaments for Dolls

Doll craft Christmas ornaments

While the official kick off of the 31 More Days of Doll Play isn’t until tomorrow, your dolls can start getting in the holiday spirit now with this simple, yet adorable craft from Karen!

Let’s make Doll Image Keepsake Holiday Balls for your tree using items you may already have at home.


To make today’s craft you will need:

  • white craft glue
  • paint brush
  • scissors
  • a non-breakable holiday ball
  • images of your dolls you would like to use, print or cut out of magazine or use American Girl Stickers
  • ribbon or pipe cleaner to hang your holiday balls

Step 1– cut out your image out, choose one that will fit on the ball

Step 2– add glue to your ball and use the paint brush to spread the glue

Step 3– lightly press your image into the glue

Step 4– add more glue to the image with your paint brush, lightly brushing glue over your image

Step 5– let it dry completely (I left mine overnight)

Step 6– slip a ribbon or pipe cleaner, through the top of the Christmas Ball so it can be placed on the tree or in your dolls hand for display

Today I used:

I hope you enjoyed today’s quick craft!

    I’ve done this before, but not with doll pictures! That’s a cute idea.
    Ikea used to have little tiny Christmas balls that were the perfect size for AG dolls. I don’t know if they still do, though.
