Make It Monday! Make Your Dolls Party Favors For New Years Eve That They Can Hold!

Karen here and for today's Make It Monday Craft I have come up with a fun New Years Eve Party Favor Craft made from Duck Tape and Pipe Cleaners for your dolls!
To make your own you will need:
-Duck Tape in Grey, Purple and Pink (Or colors of your choice)
- Scissors
- Pipe Cleaner

 Step 1- Fold the pipe cleaner in half and use your scissors to cut the pipe cleaner.
Cut away some of the grey duck tape from the roll and wrap the tape at the bend this would be the "blower" end for your dolls party favor.
Step 2- Fold one of the pipe cleaner ends down and into a circle, this will make your party flavor easy for your doll to hold.
Step 3- Wrap duck tape around the pipe cleaner as shown in the photo above.
Step 4- Wrap the duck tape so that the ends hang over the pipe cleaner  is longer then the end of the pipe cleaner.  Use your scissors to cut slits in the tape making the fray the ends of the party favor.  Use another piece of tape in a different color to wrap around the middle of your favor and use your marker to write 2015! You can bend the pipe cleaner around your dolls fingers or thumb to help them hold the party favor!

Step 5- Repeat the steps on the remaining pipe cleaner for your another doll.
Now you have Party Favors for your dolls to use for New Years Eve!
I hope you enjoy your New Years Celebrations with your dolls and your families!  I look forward to sharing more crafts for your dolls in 2015!

Make It Monday! Make A Frosty Treat For Your Dolls!

Karen here and today I wanted to share an easy no mess craft you can make your dolls this holiday season. Today's Make It Monday Craft is for a Frosty Treat for your dolls made from items you may already have on hand and it is no mess!
To make today's craft you will need:
-Sparkly tape I used Duck Tape Brand Duck Tape
-ZIG ZAG  craft scissors
-White Felt
-Small plastic cups from the dollar store
-A Straw
-Large Beads (to be the cherry)
-Scissors to cut felt

Step 1- Assemble all your supplies. Unroll 1/2 of your sparkly tap and use your scissors to cut a pattern at the edge, repeat 1/2 inch down, each of my cups too 3 strips of tape. Start wrapping your tape around the top edge of your cup or where ever you like on your cup the design is up to you. Repeat on as many cups as you plan on making into Frozen Doll Treats.
Step 2- Cut Strips of white felt slightly wider then your cup is tall, then roll it together and pull the middle slightly as you place it in the cup, it should be enough felt to hold it's shape.
Step 3- Cut a straw about 1 1/2 inches taller then your cup. Insert the straw between one of the layers of felt.  Top with a large bead and your Frozen treat is ready to share with your dolls.
If you wish to make this a more permanent addition to your dolls food and drink collection you can use hot glue to hold the felt together and the straw with bead in place.

I hope you enjoyed today's Make it Monday craft! I look forward to sharing more Make It Monday Doll Crafts with you again soon~ Karen Owen aka Karen Mom of Three
