Do your doll’s have a horse? Today’s craft will show you how to make easy hay bales for the horses out of materials you probably have on hand.
To make your own you will need:
- Empty soap or band aid boxes
- Natural raffia
- Paint brush for spreading glue
- String or Yarn
Step 1- Cover the boxes with paper. Tape or glue into place.
Step 2- Add glue to your box and then wrap raffia over the box ends as shown.
Step 3- Continue to wrap and add glue or tape into place. Wrap ends and then box as shown in the photo’s above.
Step 4- When you have wrapped your boxes and are happy with how they look, wrap a piece of yarn or string around you hay bale and tie in a knot, trim the edges. I used two strings on each hay bale. Let dry.
Step 5- Now your hay bales are ready to share with your dolls horse. The strings will help your doll hold and carry the hay for their horses.
I hope you enjoyed today’s craft I look forward to sharing more crafts with you next week .
