You asked for it and Karen delivered! A few weeks ago there was a request for how to make a bathtub for your dolls. Karen will show you how to make one today using dollar store items.
To create your own doll bath tub you will need:
- 1 plastic rectangle planter 44.5X20.5X14 CM (17.5X8X5 inches)*
- tin foil
- two lids from soda bottles
- a bag of cotton balls or fiber fill
- * shower cap, ducky and bath puff
You can find planters in a variety of designs – I found this planter at the local dollar store for $1.25.
Step 1- cut a small amount of tin foil from your tinfoil roll
Step 2- cover your soda lids with tinfoil to create your “taps”
Step 3 - roll up 6 inches of tinfoil and bend it into a candy cane shape to create your “faucet”
Step 4- attach your “faucet” to your planter with tape and tape your “taps” in place as well
Step 5- Place your doll in the tub and cover her with the cotton balls or cotton batting to create the bubbles. don’t forget to decorate her tub!
For Chrissa’s Shower cap I used a kitchen bowl cover from my dollar store and a small duck I got at the dollar store.
To make the bath puff you will need:
- scrap tulle (2-22×3 inch strips)
Step 1- cut two strips of tulle 22 inches by 3 inches wide
Step 2- cut 6 inches of yarn and tie a knot in the ends
Step 3- lie one strip on top of the other strip of tulle, gather up your tulle strips, you can fold it or bunch it
Step 4- Wrap your yarn around the tulle and loop one end of the yarn through the other and pull
Step 5- slip over your dolls hand and let her enjoy!
I hope you have enjoyed this week’s craft and that you will continue to let us know what you would like to see in our craft posts!
