Make It Monday! Let's Make A Raised Vegetable Garden For Your Dolls!

Karen here and now is the perfect time to start planting and growing your own food. Urban gardens are becoming very popular where I live and people are building their own raised garden beds to grow their own vegetables and fruit. I thought it would be fun to make a raised vegetable garden for your dolls using items you may already have at home in your own craft boxes.
To build a Raised Vegetable Garden for your dolls you will need:
-One Pop Tart ot Tea Box (empty)
-Popsicle Sticks
-Leaves from artificial flowers
-1 tooth pick
-1 small piece of paper
-1 piece of brown felt or fun foam
-1 glue gun
-2 glue sticks

Step 1- Gather all your supplies and plug in your glue gun.
Step 2- Make sure the end of your pop tart box is sealed shut, you can use glue for this.
Step 3- Start at one end of your box and add a line of glue, then press in to place a Popsicle stick.
Step 4- Continue all the way around your box.
Step 5- Trace the outside of your pop tart box ( I used a second box) with a pen and cut out your "dirt" for the planter.
Step 6- Lay it in place inside your planter box.
Step 7- Use a small piece of paper to make a garden marker. My sign says Lettuce and I drew a small lettuce plant. Glue the paper to the tooth pick and then glue the tooth pick to the inside of the planter where ever you wish.
Step 8- Start removing the leaves from your artificial flowers and then bunch them together using a bit of glue as you go and then glue them to the felt in your planter box. You can use all the same leaves or you can use a verity which I had on hand in my craft box. Fill the planter as much or as little as you like.
I hope you enjoyed today's craft and I look forward to sharing more doll crafts with you again soon. If your doll would like to add the Little Ladybug outfit to your dolls wardrobe like my doll was wearing today you can check out this outfit on Daydream Doll Boutique's shop page by clicking here. ~
