A Crepe Paper Doll

Another dolly a child can make herself. In my childhood we used string to tie the body together but this time I just had a piece of a pipecleaner at the table and thought I would use that instead.

Whilst adjusting the skirt I ripped some of the crepe paper.. so I had to stick another layer to it. It actually turned out to be a good idea, as it makes the skirt fluffier. By the way.. I have a feeling that in my childhood the crepe paper was a lot stronger. It didn`t tear that easily.

Lastly we stuck the dolly on top of the pointy part of the egg carton.. to make it stand up.

Happy doll making!

    What a cool idea!! Great idea for using the little extra pieces that aren’t quite enough for a whole decoration extravaganza. Thanks for the idea!
