Hi everyone! If you haven't already entered the 2 fun giveaways, don't wait, because this one is ending
tomorrow, and this one will end Tuesday, so time is almost up! Winners will be announced the next day.
And now I have another craft for you! So let's get started!
We are going to make a doll sized lantern for all the summer camping your dolls will be doing.
You will need: A battery operated tea light, a little cup like a communion cup, some pixie sticks, stir sticks, or lollipop sticks, craft foam, and hot glue and glue gun.
Take your tea light candle...
And glue the cup on top of it facing down, and try to clean up the excess glue.
Now take 3 circles o craft foam, 2 will be the same size, then 1 slightly larger.
You have to see how big the bottom of your cup is, trace it for the 2 matching circles, then just
cut another one slightly bigger. If you find a lid or something else that would fit on
your cup instead of craft foam, that's fine too.
Glue them together like this.
Glue them to the top of the lantern.
Now take your pixie sticks, which are a little firmer than stir sticks....
And fold 2 exactly alike, just so they will fit on either side of your lantern, and the 3rd one will be
the handle. My 2 side pieces are about 1 1/2" and the handle is about 3".
Glue one of the sides on like this with hot glue.
Then the other one to match.
Then your handle. (Yes, I changed the shape of fit.)
Now your doll will have a lantern that really works.
Saige tried it out in the tent.
She thinks it will by very handy this summer.
I hope you enjoyed!
