Went to the 99 cent store tonight to get some more of the dolls to make the wedding dress form florals, and look what I found! These were in a package with some doll shoes and purses, and a doll-sized lamp, which I don't need or want any of, but here is the dress form already made, complete with stand (which is good, because I was trying to figure out what to use to stand the doll one with - I know, bad gramar). I was so excited. I needed at least four and they had exactly four! Isn't that awesome. I was so excited I had to run home and take a picture and share.
This is an experiment that I tried. I've been trying to find theee dress forms to make wedding shower centerpieces. The only ones I found were just way too pricey - loke $35 each, and I need at least five of them. So I had a plan to make them myself. Here's what I did. Got one of those fake Barbie-type dolls at the Dollar Tree store, and got a Barbie wedding gown on ebay for 99 cents, plus shipping (like $2.50 for 3 dresses). I ripped the head and arms off the doll, dressed her in the wedding dress, and made the floral, sticking it in the hole where the head used to be. Then I tied some tulle and ribbon aroung the neck, and voila! Let me know what you think.
