Hi! Today I am going to show you how to make a quick and easy mop for your dolls. This prop will come in handy in an upcoming giveaway, and my other mop broke, so when I was going to make a new one, I decided to show you how!
Here is the mop I made for my dolls. You can actually make it look dirty if you want to by dipping it into a bowl of water than has a little bit of paint in it. But keep it far away from your dolls until it is completely dry if you choose to do this.
All you need is some beige or off-white yarn, scissors, and a dowel about 1/2" in diameter or less.
Start by laying out your yarn to see how long you want the strands to be.
Now you will need a bunch of strands, so start zig-zagging it over and over.
Until you have a good chunk of it.
Now grab the wad, and cut all the loops on the end.
Trim them neatly. Do that on both ends.
Now take your dowel,and insert the dowel into the wad of yarn. You can just pick up half of the yarn, place the dowel down, then put the other half back.
Then you are going to take a longer piece of yarn, place it underneath, and tie it around like this.
Make it tight.
Then trim the ends off again if you want to.
I hope yo enjoyed!
