Art out of waste - Doll making

Now my daughter is enjoying her holidays after 1 st term examination.We want to enjoy it in an useful manner.So i taught her this craft.While doing this craft she felt very happy.Here i 've posted it in detail.

Materials needed:
  1. Waste chart paper
  2. water color
  3. gum
  4. scissors
  5. egg shell
  6. mirrors,kundhans,glitters


Draw one big circle and one smallcircle in the chart for making body and hands.


Cut them using scissors.Now we have 2 pieces.


Take big piece and fold it in half.


Cut it in the crease.Now we get 2 semicircles.Do the same for  small piece also.


Take one big semicircle and two small semicircles.That only need for making one doll.Now take big piece and hold it in the direction as in this picture


Roll it as a cone.


Stick its ends using glue.Now we have one cone.Similarly do the same for the next 2 small pieces.Totally we have 3 cones.


Then paint them using water color.we can give contrast colors for body and hands.


Decorate them using glitters.


Apply glue and stick both of the hands and let it to dry.


Paint the shell and let it to dry.

( After applying paint we leave the shell to dry.In that time my younger baby crush that shell and the doll first we made.So i complete this tutorial by another doll already i have made.Here i have used canvas cloth )

Make holes in the top and bottom of the egg then insert a paper roll in it.

Then do details in it.Make another small cone and use it as a hat.


Then attach it in the body by inserting the paper roll in the hole of the body.
Now ur doll is ready.We can decorate it using mirrors,kundhans,glitters etc.

They turned out so cute!!!

I have found most kids LOVE doing crafts and staying busy like this. I keep a whole cabinet full of paper towel rolls, glitter, pom poms, etc. mostly from Dollar Tree or somewhere super cheap. And when my daughters friends are over, I just let them pull everything out and just create. It's fun to watch them use their imaginations! :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog!!

Great tutorial.I have a 4 year old who also loves crafting but I am not sure mine would handle an egg shell so gently!
