Little victories like this spur me on to make more stuff out of things I have around the house, or can pick up cheaply at a thrift or craft store.
Essentially all it took was the use of the large oatmeal container.
I used the height of the first chair, and then traced around a paper plate to get the curve that I wanted for the back.
And again, I just glued on some nice quality scrapbook paper. Nothing fancy here.
Oh, and I did not use ANY hot glue on this one, just plain old Elmers.
And it did!
Just look at that.
Now the AG doll has a parlor table too.
This chair fits her MUCH better.
I think it works great here!
I'm still not sure if it will hold up with the younger crowd, but for the aged (me!) it works just fine.
It didn't cost anything, so I'm not TOO worried.
Measure around to the height you want, trace around a paper plate to get the shape of the back, then cut out (I used a blade).
I haven't thought that far yet.
It does have sort of a modern look to it - I may try to cover it with fabric and make a little round pillow for the inside.
It did get me away from making more bunnies though. Those bunnies. They multiplied QUICKLY.
