Make It Monday- Halloween Bat Hat Craft for 18" American Girl Dolls

 Make it Monday October 28- A Bat Hat

For today’s Make it Monday Post I wanted to share a fun and easy way to make a Bat Hat for your dolls.
To create your own today you will need:
-Black Felt
-Black Fun Foam
-White Fun Foam
-A Black Marker
-Hot Glue Gun with Glue
-A Side plate
-Your Doll

Step 1- Assemble all your supplies needed. Plug your glue gun in. Fold your felt in half like you would to make a greeting card. Place the plate on the felt so that the top of the plate touches the fold of your felt. Cut out your Hat shape.
Step 2- Cut out your wing shapes. I free hand cut mine from two pieces of black fun foam. So that they matched but you can have two different wings if you like!
Step 3- Cut out two white fun foam circles for the eyes and a small mouth if you would like.

Step 4- Use a black marker to make the pupils of your eyes.
Step 5- Run a line of glue along the round outside edge of one piece of your felt.
Step 6- Gently press your wings into place. Run more glue over the fun foam.
Step 7- Line up and press the other piece of black felt into place to make your hat.
Step 8- Glue your eyes into place and your mouth.
Step 9- Once it is dry place it on your dolls head and enjoy!
I hope you have a happy and safe Halloween. I look forward to sharing more crafts with you again soon.~ Karen Owen aka Karen Mom of Three

Make It Monday- Halloween Candy Craft for American Girl 18" Dolls

Make It Monday- Halloween Candy for your Dolls

This is a fun time of the year for crafting Halloween Items for your dolls, Today I wanted to show you how you can make a variety of treats for your dolls.
To make your own doll sizes treats you will need:

-Orange and Black Fun Foam
- Small Halloween Stickers
-Construction Paper
-Small craft sticks or tooth picks
-Glue Stick
-Duct Tape in Candy Corn Theme
-A zip lock baggie
-Tin foil

To make the dolly lolly pops :
Step 1- Find small round or square Halloween stickers that are the same size. I got mine at the dollar store.
Step 2- Use a small craft stick or tooth pick as your base
Step 3- Peel one sticker and place on the craft stick
Step 4- Place another sticker on the opposite side

Step 5- From the bottom of your plastic zip lock bag cut enough of the plastic to cover your lolly pop.
Step 6- Slide your lolly pop inside and tape the sides closed. Trim the tape. Repeat on the rest of your lolly pops.

To make the doll sized candy corn:

Step 1- Cover a piece of orange fun foam with a strip of duct tape.
Step 2- Cut out pieces of the candy corn from the strip.
Step 3- Cut a small square from the top of your zip lock bag and place your fun foam candy corn inside
Step 5- Tape your candy corn bag sides and your treat is ready for your doll

To make doll sized candy bars:
Step 1- Cut small two inch rectangles from your brown fun foam.
Step 2- Tear a piece of tin foil and cover each of the rectangles.
Step 3- Cut small strips of construction paper to be the wrapper of your candy bar, wrap around your foil, so that some of the foil shows. Glue or tape into place
Step 4- Put a small Halloween Sticker on the front of the wrapper

Step 5- If you want to make a few bars that look like your dolls are eating the candy bar, cut teeth marks in the top corner of one of your candy bars and do not fully cover the bar with foil.
I look forward to sharing more craft ideas with you soon!~ Karen Owen aka Karen Mom of Three
