Doll Craft: Make A Doll Size Lemonade Stand

You asked for it, so here it is. I got a request a few weeks ago from one of you wonderful readers who wanted to see some crafts that would work with the theme of this years Doll of the Year, Kanani.  I had so much fun making this fun and easy lemonade stand out of recycled cardboard with a recycled surf board. With some easy to find supplies from the party store or dollar store you can definitely make this for your doll.

How to Make a Lemonade Stand for Dolls

To start you will need some cardboard that you can use to create the stand and the surf board.  You will also need some supplies from the craft, dollar store or party store  to decorate your lemonade stand.

I picked these up for 50 cents each and the Lei’s were also 50 cents each. One Lei makes two doll sized Lei’s simply cut in half remove the straw between the flowers so you can tie the ends together simple easy and fun.

I also made a pattern for the surf board you can draw yours freehand but I am showing you how I did mine.

Next using a pencil make your design, then use your creativity to color it in and outline in black marker.

To make the stand you need a large piece of cardboard that you can fold into three or you can buy a ready made project board and use that.

I measured a window and cut it with an craft knife (please make sure you have an adult do the cutting part!!) on only three sides so I could fold down the inside to make a ledge. If you do not want/need a ledge you can just cut out the window on four sides if it is easier.

Once it is cut out then you can decorate it by taping the store bought garland to the cardboard front or you can just draw and color your own designs.
