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
"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
