Make It Monday- Doll Craft Skipping Rope

Daydream Doll Boutique Guest Post #1 from Karenmomofthree (

For today's first "Make it Monday" Karen Owen aka Karenmomofthree shows us how to make your own doll sized skipping rope using inexpensive craft items you may already have at home.

For today's craft you will need
- A ruler
- A pair of scissors
- A thin straw
-A plastic craft gimp lace or jewelry cording
-* small elastics to help your doll hold her skipping rope

Step 1- Measure your straw and cut two pieces of 2 inch long straws. These will be the skipping rope handles.

Step 2- Thread the gimp or cord through one end of your straw handle and tie a knot. I tied three knots one of top of the other so that the straw did come off the end. The Gimp cord is 34 inches long. You can make yours longer or shorter if you like.

Step 3- Tie more knots at the bottom of the straw on your skipping rope to stop the straw from sliding down your skipping rope.

Step 4- Repeat on the other side.
Step 5- Give the skipping rope to your doll and head outside to play. * Use small elastics to help your doll hold her skipping rope.

I hope you have enjoyed today's "Make it Monday!" ~Karenmomofthree for Daydream Doll Boutique
