Karen here and I have had so much fun this week with the Science themed crafts! I wanted to set up my own Doll Sized Science Fair complete with Award Ribbons for my craft today. Using items I had on hand and items from www.ilovetocreate.com and Buttons Galore and More I was able to make some really fun science themed play items this week. Pair them all together with today’s craft and set up your own doll sized Science Fair!
To get started making your own Science Fair Play Set like mine you will need:
- Kunin Felt in Red, Blue and Green
- 3 Large Buttons
- Pipe Cleaner
- Pinch and Press Hair Clips or Bull Dog Clips
- Ribbon in Red, Blue and Green
- A glue gun with glue
- *Crafts from earlier this week have been added to make up the bulk of the Science Fair Play Set
Step 1- Assemble your felt, ribbons, hair clips or bull dog clips, buttons, scissors and marker. Plug in your glue gun.
Step 2- Use your scissors to cut out three circles from your felt, these circles you can cut free hand but make sure they are larger then your buttons.
Step 3- Cut Ribbons For each of your awards, I used blue for First, Red for Second and Green for Third Place. Cut Three 1 1/2 inch pieces of ribbon for each award you make.
Step 4- Use your Glue Gun to attach The Felt circle to the hair clip, then attach the three ribbons along the bottom edge covering and hiding your hair clip. Secure with more hot glue.
Step 5- Add a dab of glue to the center of your felt and gently press the button into place.
Once they are dry you can award them to your favorite display or let your dolls wear them!
I hope you enjoyed today’s Science Crafts! Thank you to Tari at Kitt’s Kloset for creating my dolls lab coats for this week!
