Brandy's St. Patrick's Day Party for Dolls

Today Brandy shares with us her St. Patrick's Day Party for Dolls!

"My daughters love the holidays.ALL holidays!!  So they wanted their dolls to
have a St. Patrick's Day special treat too."

 "Here is how I did it:

Table Cloth and Napkins:  were made out of remnant green fabric.  I hemmed
with a basic straight stitch."

" "Leprechaun Cake":  was made using a 3 inch round artist sponge found in the
paint section of my local Michael's Craft Store.  I cut it into 6 sections
using an electric knife.  Next I wrote the number 1-6 on the bottom so I
would know which order they fit into.  The top and back side was painted
with green puff paint.  Once dry I used a heart and triangle hand punch to
make a shamrock design to top each slice.  I chose a multi-colored rainbow
pattern to make it more festive."

"Shamrock Cookies":  I made a shamrock pattern and traced and cut it from
tan foam paper.  I took green puff paint to resemble frosting.  While still
slightly wet I sprinkled on real rainbow candy sprinkles.

"Lucky Doughnuts":  These are green Fruit Loops.  I took green puff paint to
the top.  I also added green sugar sprinkles.  Once the paint was dry I
sprayed the doughnuts with gloss sealant.

"Green Root-Beer":  Was made using green pom-poms placed into plastic mug
shaped cups.

"Pot of Gold Centerpiece":  I painted a tiny terracotta pot black.  I then
wrapped a Styrofoam ball with gold colored mesh.  Then I inserted a shamrock
decoration from the craft bins at my local Michaels store.  Finally, I
placed rainbow stickers on the sides of the pot.

Have a lucky day!  Brandy
