Brandy's New Years Day Dinner!
It has been a long standing family tradition to have some type of cabbage on
New Year's Day. One of our all time favorites is Grandma Peggy's Cabbage
Rolls. Yummy! While I was getting things together for the upcoming New
Year festivities, I thought it would be cute to create something for my
daughters to join in the fun. To start, I had to create a doll sized
First I started with a rectangle paper-mache box. I spray painted the
outside a gloss white and the inside gloss black. I hot glued a black pony
bead to a black button and then glued that to the front of the box for the
I used a label maker on a small font to make letter and
number details. Black pony beads were used for the feet. I finished the
oven using black foam paper for trimmings and handles.
I used stripes of light green felt and rolled and hot glued together. Sauce
is made from red felt cut into irregular shapes.
As a little extra treat I also made my daughters a pork and sauerkraut
dinner to go with their already made crock-pot. Please see my posts
on how to make the crock-pot by clicking here.
I painted a crafter's sponge a pale tan. For roast slices I used tan foam
cut into irregular ovals.
I used tan rubber bands cut down into small pieces; served with mashed
potatoes (white pom-poms.)
