Christmas decorating!!!

Hi everyone!

happy last day of November!!! anyway, here is a photo-story of the dolls decorating there room for Christmas!!!

Julie and felicity were sitting around bored. "so what should we do?" asked Julie "I'm not sure"
Felicity replied as she looked around the room for any ideas.

"oh! I got it!!!" she said "we should decorate for Christmas!"

"great idea" Julie said "I'll go get the tree!"
"and I'll get the other decorations!" said Felicity.

They both rushed off and returned with the tree and decorations.

First they moved the desk to make room for the tree.

Julie switched out the pillow on the desk chair.

And Felicity did the same on the bed.

Felicity's bed ^

Julie's bed ^

They also decorated the table with a red and white polka dot table cloth and a cute little tree!

On top of the fridge was some flowers,

In which they switched out with a cute cake and a picture that read: Let There Be Bright!

And they were done!!!

DIY doll smores!

To go along with the campfire I also made some doll smores!

Items you will need:

white paint
brown paint
something sharp like a needle (optinal)

Cut a  two pieces of cardboard into little squares, then on one of them take a needle and very carefully poke little holes into the square this is optinal.

and there you have the graham crackers.

cut two more squares.

glue them together (I just did this cause my cardboard was thin) paint it brown for the chocolate

glue the chocolate onto the graham cracker without holes (you can poke holes in both pieces or graham crackers but I chose not to)

paint a big bead white for the marshmellow

and glue it in between the other graham cracker and chocolate! and you are done!

you can also make marshmellow roasting sticks with a stick about 5 or 6 inches and glue the painted bead onto the stick!

And now your dolls can enjoy a cozy campfire with smores!

DIY doll campfire!

Hi Everyone!

Since Fall is now in full swing and its cold I decided to make my dolls a campfire warm up! :)
Here is how you can make one for your dolls too:

Items you will need:

something round like a container
some kind of strong glue (I used a hot glue gun)
fabric or wrapping paper

First put your round object onto your cardboard and trace it and cut it out.

Go outside and get some small rocks and sticks. (you can probably find rocks at a craft store if you prefer to do it that way)

After washing of the rocks line them up on the edge of the cardboard you just cut out. (I used nine rocks but it all depends on how small or big your round object was.

glue the rocks in place.

I glued this thick stick in the middle to help the rest of the sticks stay up.

break your sticks into smaller pieces mine were about 2 inches long.

glue them in the middle of the rocks like the picture above.

If you want to make your campfire look like there is fire cut a few stripes of orange and red fabric or wrapping paper and carefully stuff them in between the sticks.

And you are done!
