If the doll was in need of a cot, it is not necessary to run to the Children's World for an expensive plastic toy. A good bed for a doll can be done with your own hands. Equipment
- Detail of a garden fence
- Rectangular wicker basket
- Balloon with paint.
Let's get to work Step 1: Buy one piece of garden fencing. Such small wire pieces that come together to form a decorative wall around an open flower garden. They are available in a variety of variations. Try to find a detail that looks like a mini headboard for the bed. Any store for gardeners can sellsimilar things. You can search the market, but this product is seasonal in nature. You will probably find it on the market only during the summer season. For a better choice, shop at the beginning of the season. There is a small piece of fasteners on the right side - to connect this part of the fence with the rest. If the fasteners prevent you, simply cut it with a wire cutter and sand the sharp edges so that you can not be scratched. Step 2: Buy a rectangular basket. The illustration shows a basket, woven from natural material, on a metal frame, which makes it quite solid. She neprichudlva, so that this can and weave if desired. But it's easier, of course, to buy. Pick up a basket, knowing the growth of your doll, so that the bed is not enough for her. Turn the basket upside down. To create the head of the bed, insert a detail of the garden fence into the basket through the bars. Fold the wires below to hold on. Step 3: Coloring the crib. Not necessary. It all depends on the original color of the basket. If it is not suitable, paint the basket in any desired color with paint from the can. Pick up the paint, which will be in harmony with the doll's bedding. Wait until the paint dries completely before covering it. Step 4: Create a foam mattress. You need to focus on the dimensions of the basket. If it is high enough, make the mattress thinner, and vice versa - if a low, thick mattress will balance the size. For a small doll mattress can serve as a usual bath sponge. It only needs to be carefully cut with a sharp knife to achieve the optimum thickness. Bedding for a doll is better to sew from a fabric to the color of her pajamas. So you get a tasteful ensemble. Playing dolls with a daughter is very fun! But if you have a son, this does not mean that there should not be any dolls or puppies in the house. Playing the dolls teaches the child to take care of others. You need to be able to do this to boys too.
