Make It Monday! Mini Doll Reindeer Antlers!

Karen here and today I got out the Mini dolls for a bit of holiday fun! I have 9 mini dolls and wanted to do something to help them get ready for the holidays. You can easily make your mini dolls Reindeer Antlers from one pipe cleaner!

To make your own you will need:
-Pipe Cleaners (1 for each of your dolls)
-Your Mini Doll

Step 1- Assemble your supplies and bend your pipe cleaner into the letter N. Cut at each bend.
Step 2- Use one of the pieces to form a circle and bend then ends together to keep it in place.
Step 3- Bend the other two pieces in half and cut.
Step 4- Attach one of the short pipe cleaners to the circle by bending one end around the circle.
Step 5- Bend another small piece of the cut pipe cleaner around the top end of the piece sticking up from the circle, this becomes one antler.
Step 6- Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the other antler.
Step 7- Repeat all the steps to make a pair of antlers for each of your mini dolls.

*Mini Doll Tip, holiday buttons for sewing and crafts make great doll sizes sugar cookies!
I look forward to sharing more doll play ideas with you again in the New Year. I hope you have a safe and happy holiday season!
