Make It Monday! Make A Doll Kite!

Karen here and it is Make It Monday! Today I wanted to share an easy way to make a kite for your dolls using Duck Tape Brand Duck Tape, Yarn and Coffee Stir Sticks.

You will need to make your own:
-4 stir sticks
-A roll of Duck Tape
-Your Doll
Step 1- Assemble all your supplies. You will need to find the center of each of your stir sticks. Bend in 2 in half until till they snap as and make the shape of the V as shown in the photo above.

Step 2- Unroll and lay out your Duck Tape from the roll, Make sure your
then lay your two V shapes with ends touching each other on top and centered in your tape;

then place one long stir stick in the center, snap of the end if it is too long and another in half to be the cross piece.

Step 3- Wrap your Duck Tape over your stir sticks as shown in the photo above until your wood is all covered.

Step 4- Unroll a piece of Duck Tape from your roll and tri fold it as show in the photo above left then bend it on each end to create a loop for your dolls hand to fit through so she can hold the kite. Tape it into place on the back side of the kite.
Step 5- Use some yarn and create a kite streamer tail. I made a small tassel and taped it into place at one end of the kite.
Step 6- With the remaining half of the stir stick wrap and knot a piece of yarn to one end and cover it with more tape, This will help your doll hold the kite string. Cut the yarn about 18 inch long. Loop tie the other end to the handled on the underside of the kite you made earlier and your kite is ready to use!
 I hope you enjoyed today's post and are inspired to make and take your doll play outside this Spring.
