Brandy makes beautiful music for her daughters
"I made my daughter, Jayla, a little keyboard to match the one she plays on.
She was so excited. She has practiced all morning. Hmmm....who would have
thought a doll keyboard would make her want to practice more.
This was a really inexpensive craft. I had most supplies already on hand.
I always use my Michael's coupons too!"
"For the keyboard stand I did purchased two craft 6 3/4 inch wood
candlesticks. I also purchased a package set of rectangular wood pieces.
Total wood cost was around $5. I glued one of the wood rectangles to the
top of the candle sticks. I spray painted the stand black."
"For the keyboard I took the other wood rectangle and painted it silver. I
found a piano keyboard template in the American Girl School Craft Set that
my daughters had received for Easter. I laminated the keyboard to make it
last longer with play. I then used textured card stock paper and made
speakers. I used a yellow piece of laminated card stock for the display
screen. I used a hole puncher and punched rectangles and circles from gray
and red foam paper for various buttons. The volume buttons are pony beads.
I hot-glued two mini Christmas Tree Light Command Hooks to the back of the
keyboard to use as a music stand. I used furniture bumpers between the two
pieces of wood to keep them from getting scratched up."
Thank you brandy for this inspiring craft!
