Redoing my doll kitchen! DIY doll kitchen backsplash!

Image
Hello!
In this post, I will be redoing my doll kitchen backsplash. I have the Our generation kitchen, in red.
I really don´t like the original backsplash, so I decided to replace it with a cute marble one!


For this craft you will need: 
a tape measure (a ruler can work but a tape measure works the best)a ruler (for a different purpose)a piece of scrapbook paper in your choice of color (mine is marble)scissorssome glue (I used mod podge)a paintbrush (to spread out the glue)a pencil or pensomething to smooth the paper out (a toy spatula...)Steps: 
Measure the backsplash.  This picture is sideways, but it measures about 5 3/4 in at the bottom. This backsplash is about 5 3/4 x 6 in.    2.   When you are done measuring all 4 sides, find the scrapbook paper and cut it out based on your measurements. (this is where you use the ruler, for straight lines) I put mine in the backsplash space, and it was a little too big. I trimmed it down a little. The final measurement is 5 7/16 x 6 in.  


3.  Take so…

Doll Christmas Haul!

Image
Hi everyone!
It is so close to Christmas, (1 day!!) so I wanted to show you guys all the holiday things I have for my dolls. (not a lot!)
I got most of the things from Target, in their Christmas section.
 This is a very long post, so keep reading!

Here are all the things I got...


The first thing I will show you guys is the tree. I got it on sale for $5.60 instead of $8.00.
It is 24 in tall, and taller than an AG doll. I think it looks really cool in silver, but if you want it to look like a normal tree, Target has other colors. Next, I will show you the lights! These are my favorite out of the things I got from Target.  They are $4.20 on sale instead of $6.00 Their lighted length is 9.6 ft, and the total length is 10.8 ft. Mine wrapped around the tree completely.


They also have a timer part on the on/off switch. These are battery powered and require 2 AA batteries. 

Now time for the ornaments! They were $2.10 on sale, normally $3.00 There are three types of ornaments in the package, m…

Hey everyone!

Hope you enjoy!

1. Get a piece of craft foam and trace your computer around it. If you don't have a doll-sized computer, then use these measurements: 4 7/8 across by 3 6/8 vertically (you don't have to be super precise!)   You can also just approximate it but make sure to leave room on the edges!
2. Cut it out along the lines! 

3. Once it is cut, just trace around the foam and cut that out. You should now have 2 sides.  4. Glue the 2 pieces together with hot glue. You can also use foam glue or tacky glue. *Make sure to leave 1 end open!!!*
             5. You can leave it like it is (above …
