Make It Monday! Make A Puppy Bed!

Karen here and for this weeks Make It Monday feature I made a puppy bed for my Our Generation Puppy. This is a really easy and fun craft you can make for your own dolls puppy or kitty!
To make your own you will need:
-1 empty pop tart box
-duct tape
-a ruler
-a pencil
-a piece of felt
-a coffee mug
Step 1- Use a ruler  and your pencil to measure 2 1/2 inches up from the bottom and draw a line all the way around the box bottom.
Step 2- Cut along the line you created and remove the top of the box.
Step 3- On one side of the box place a coffee mug and then use your pencil to trace around the mug
Step 4- Cut out the shape you traced and your box will look like mine.

Step 5- Cover your box with duck tape. "U" shape you created and then line the inside of the box with more duck tape.

Step 6- trace your box onto a piece of felt and cut it out for the bottom of your pet bed. Place it inside your box and your pet bed is ready to play with!

I hope you enjoyed today's Make It Monday Post and I look forward to sharing more crafts with you soon!

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!
