DIY Dolls Wardrobe

My little sister wanted a wardrobe for her dolls clothes so I decided to make one for her with crafts that I already had at home. She was really happy with how it looked when I had finished.

I used an old shoe box for the frame of the wardrobe. Then I decorated it with craft paper and gold coloured tape. I used an old storage box for some drawers. I used some sticks to make the wardrobe pole and bracelet pole. I used some grippers to hang the bags onto. I had a little help from my mum to glue the parts on with the hot glue gun. I made some clothes hangers using some paper clips and straws. I made some furniture for her too.

Minion Loom Band Keyring

I was asked by a friend if I could make her a Minion Loom Band Keyring. I searched around the internet for tutorials and inspiration and came up with this lovely character! I think it is so cute, I hope you like it.

Below are a few other loom band things I have made lately. The one immediately below is a Peace Sign keyring.

Cake Cases Crafts - Peg Doll


I made this lovely Peg Doll at my Girl Guides class recently. It was made from a peg and some paper cake cases. I also decorated it using pipe cleaners and permanent marker pens. I think it turned out quite pretty especially using the colourful paper cases.

Handmade Eid cards and candles

handmade eid cards and candles

I have been making some Eid cards and designing candles this weekend to give to our friends with some delicious cakes I also made. My previous post showed how I used henna to design a candle, this time however I actually used acrylic paints to design the candles shown above using henna style designs. http://www.slhcrafts.com/2014/09/henna-candle-tutorial.html
