It may have took forever, but I finally finished a project on my craft list. Just a little something I whipped up for my dolls.
Doll sized head bands!
I made several little bitty head bands for my ball jointed dolls (check the doll blog to see their reaction). It’s been something I’ve been dying to try but couldn’t for one silly reason. I couldn’t find doll-sized blank head bands to cover.
Then I realized I could use something else as the base, jewelry wire. It’s easy to find and works great, as you will see.
This first head band is made of faux pearls strung on to the wire. I have a similar head band which is how I got the idea.
The next one is made of lace wrapped around the wire. I added a little bitty lace rosette to decorate. It probably would look cute with a tiny flower or button in the center of the rosette, but for now this will do.
For my smaller ball jointed doll, Sakura, I made these sweet ribbon head bands.
I just wrapped the wire with ribbon and added a simple bow.
For this doll, Usagi, it’s the same thing but with a slightly less simple bow.
And this headband is wrapped with both lace and ribbon. The lace is over the pink ribbon, so you can see a hint of pink color through the lace. Looks cute enough to try on a human sized head band.
Since these head bands were so cute and easy to make, I made a video tutorial.
All you need are:
- Ruler or tape measure
- Lace, ribbon or beads
- Jewelry wire
- Wire cutters
- Glue gun
And of course a doll.
Wait, there’s more. In honor of Halloween I made a few more doll sized head bands.
I made cat ear head bands!
They are easily made of felt and jewelry wire. Don’t they look adorable on the dolls.
And I also made a second video tutorial for these, so everyone’s dolls can dress up for Halloween.
Here’s the updated list:
- Pink dress
- Tank Top
One down, five more to go. The next one will be up soon. Look forward to it!
