Make It Monday! Let's Make Foam Teacups & Saucers

Karen here and recently I saw a lovely photo on Facebook of a garland of teacups made from Styrofoam balls as decoration for a tea baby shower. I thought it would be fun to try to make them but as usable doll play teacups! So using fun foam I had on hand and two Styrofoam balls I made a set of 4. These would make lovely party crafts and take home gifts.

To make your own you will need:
-Fun Foam
-2 small Styrofoam balls
-A knife and a grown up to cut the balls in half
-8 short straight pins for sewing
-Small lid to trace a saucer circle on

Step 1- have a grown up cut your foam ball in half along the center seam on your Stryofoam ball. This works best with a knife with teeth like a saw! Have them cut both balls in half.
Step 2- Cut a 1/4 inch strip from the fun foam by 8 inches. Then cut that piece into 4 equal parts.
Use two push pins to secure the teacup handle on the side of your foam ball, repeat on each ball.
Step 3- Trace a circle twice the size of the foam cup. I used a small lid of a jam jar. Cut out 4 to be the saucers of your tea cups.

Now your tea cups are ready for play!
I hope you have fun making teacups for your dolls!
I look forward to sharing more doll play crafts with you again soon!

Make It Monday A Dolly Life Jacket!

Karen here with a fun Make It Monday Craft, A Life Jacket you can make for your dolls.
To make your own you will need.
-A Padded Mailing envelope (10 inches at least)
-A Pencil
-A Marker
-Your Doll
-A Velcro Dot
Step 1- Gather all your supplies and lay your envelope flat. Place your doll on top of the envelope with her neck at the sealed end. Trace her body on the envelope, under her arms and mark where her neck is. Draw a straight line down the center of the envelope at the next line as shown in the photo above.
Step 2- Move your doll and connect the lines you have made so that they resemble a vest. Carefully cut the arms out from the bottom to the top, then cut out the neck. I traced my doll so that the vest will be waist length. Cut straight across the evenlope to create the length of the life jacket.
Step 3- Use your scissors and cut up that center line, be sure to only cut one layer.
Your vest is now ready to try on your doll.

Step 4- Place the vest on your doll and use your eyes to see where you would like to attach the velcro dot. Remove the backing and place on sticky side down and then place the other dot on top and press the top of the vest into place.
Step 5- Use your marker to draw on buckles and a badge.
Now your Dolly Life Vest Is Ready to play with!
***Please note to do not ever really put your doll in the water unless her body is full plastic. It can wreck your doll. This is a pretend life vest and will not save your doll from the water.
I hope you enjoyed today's Make It Monday Craft and I will be back with more doll play craft ideas soon~ Karen Owen aka Karen Mom of Three
