With the debut of Isabelle, the 2014 American Girl Doll of the Year, I decided to create a ballet studio for dolls to rehearse and practice in to honor and welcome her to her new home.
It was really quite simple and came out oh so adorable. I used a thrift shop mirror and spray painted the frame black. To make the ballet bar, I hung a decorative curtain rod using ribbon pieces thumbtacked to the wall (easy to move around this way). Wah-Lah, it is that easy.
I pulled her hair up too because dancers usually wear their hair up when they are dancing.
I think Maria looks lovely and I just know she will enjoy practicing ballet with Isabelle when she arrives.
