Summer is almost here! I know, I know, it’s only March… but it’s not that far off. So, we need to get prepping, and start creating things for our dolls so we have them in time for Summer.

DIY AG Doll Perfume!

Hey everybody! Here is how I made a few perfumes for my doll’s vanity set I’m working on! These are super easy, so here we go!

DIY Perfume.png

What you’ll need:

  • A perfume bottle image (I found mine in a beauty brands magazine, but you can use some you print off since you’ll be ‘laminating’ them with clear tape.
  • Clear tape
  • Hot glue
  • cardboard or stiff paper

Begin by putting tape over the images, and cutting them out. Then hotglue the perfume image onto the cardboard. Cut the image out again, and then make a triangle shape. Cut off the tip, and bend it at the top. Glue the bent portion onto the back of the perfume image, and voila! You have doll perfume 🙂

My Lazy Attempt at Doll Clothes Made From Baby Outfits

Here are my clothes I made from baby outfits, modelled by Nicki!

 

The first one was a long sleeved button up onesie. I used the back part, and the sleeves, to make a shirt and booties. Idk why.

The second one was a long sleeved onesie as well, and I just cut off the bottom, lazily leaving the bottom unhemmed. It’s a nightgown, so it really doesn’t matter haha.

The third one was a button up long sleeved onesie (again) and it is now a sweater! This one took a while, because I hemmed the bottom, and took it in twice on the back.

And last but not least, my favourite: a sweatshirt made from a grey long sleeved onesie. I took in the back, and cut the bottom part off. I hemmed it, and rolled up the sleeves for a cute and stylish look! The headband is from the band of some pink pants. I had to take it in a little bit, but it still looks nice! 🙂

 

Which is your favourite? Have you ever done this?
