How to make a Barbie cabinet: several options
All girls like to play dolls. However, games often require additional equipment to make it more interesting and exciting. In this article I want to talk about how to make a wardrobe for Barbie: what materials and what principle can be used to make the product.
What can I need?
First of all, I want to deal withmaterials that may be needed for the manufacture of the product. So, you can, of course, do everything from wood (or plywood), but in this case you need a little skill and a special tool. In the same article are given more simple options: how to make a wardrobe for Barbie from a cardboard box or a package of milk. So, you will definitely need scissors, glue, ruler, scotch (including double-sided), as well as wrapping paper and foil for finishing.
Option 1. A packet of milk
How to make a wardrobe for Barbie? The easiest way is to create it from the used package from milk. It is best to choose the maximum capacity of the product, so the cabinet will be more (after all, the doll will need to hang long dresses). At the very beginning, the box needs to be thoroughly rinsed and dried. Further, the upper part, where the bag was opened, is neatly and smoothly cut. This will be the bottom of the cabinet, its bottom. Now you need to make a door for the product. To do this, it is necessary to draw a vertical line along the very center of the wide side of the package, practically from the very top. Cutting it with a blade or a clerical knife, you can eventually get the doors opening (the place where the curtains should be, you need to carefully and smoothly hide so that the cabinet opens without problems). Basically that's all, the closet is generally ready. However, he is absolutely not beautiful! It needs to be decorated with the already prepared wrapping paper, from the foil to make small handles that are attached with a double-sided adhesive tape. Well, how not to provide for hangers? To do this, in the very body of the cabinet under his "ceiling" you need to pierce with an awl two small holes in which to insert the wire - this will be a hanging holder. The very hangers can be easily twisted from the wire - a simple triangle with a hook at the top. That's all, the closet and even accessories for it are ready!
Option 2. Box for shoes.
Still how to make a wardrobe for Barbie? So, you can use for this shoe box (its size is selected if desired). First of all, you need to decide whether the cabinet is tall or wide. And after that start working. First you need to work hard on the lid. The corners of it are gently cut, the sides (side folds) - straighten (unfold). The top and bottom are cut off. In the center of the lid, you need to draw a vertical line - this will open the doors. The door is ready, it remains to decorate it - cover with paper, and make a mirror from the foil on the inside of the door. Then the box itself is glued. The next step is to glue the doors to the box with adhesive tape. That's basically it. Inside the cabinet, you can make a clothes shelf: cut it out of cardboard (according to the depth of the cabinet), bend the corners about a couple of centimeters by 90 ° from each side and glue these folds to the walls of the cabinet. Below you can make a hanger and hangers themselves in the manner described above. That's all the tips on how to make a wardrobe for dolls own hands.
It should be said that the dolls do not needonly cabinets. You can also figure out how to make furniture for Barbie to fill the interior. So, if you glue two matchboxes together and wrap them with a cloth, you will get a nice ottoman. An excellent floor lamp will come from an umbrella for cocktails (as a basis you can use, again, a matchbox). From the boxes from under the matches, you can also make a sofa: two boxes are flat - a place for sitting, two on the edge at the sides - the handles of the sofa, on which the doll is so comfortable to lean, the three boxes behind the resting place are the back. All boxes are glued together with ordinary glue, the finished product is covered with a cloth.
