The Barbie doll has won the hearts of many girls around the world. She is known for her love of outfits, beautiful homes and luxurious furnishings. It is very expensive to buy furniture for a Barbie in a store, and besides, you can always make it yourself. This will help develop the child's imagination, creativity and accustom him to work.
Furniture from boxes. It is very easy to make a sofa or bed out of the box. To do this, you will need a box or several boxes, scissors, a sharp stationery knife, foam rubber, cotton wool or synthetic winterizer (or other stuffing material), threads, needles, glue. Cut out a blank out of the box, where necessary - glue, for example, the headboard and legs of the bed or the armrests for the sofa. Then glue the blank with foam rubber, roll up the rollers for the armrests and headboards and sew them in advance. Place a cloth over the undersides of the furniture. Make sure that there are no air bubbles between the cloth and the cardboard. Sew the front sides, pulling the fabric tightly and clinging it to the fabric glued from the wrong side. Sew the pillows and bedspread, stuff the pillows with padding polyester. The furniture is ready.
Furniture from cans. It is better to make such furniture together with adults. This will help prevent injury. Take a tin can, it is better if it is made of thin metal, for example, a can of soda or beer will do. Cut the sides of the can into thin strips and fold them away from the bottom. Using tongs, connect several strips, twist patterns from them and model the legs of the future table or chair. When the blank is ready, sew the pad and glue it into the bottom of the can.
Wicker furniture from newspapers. Country doll furniture can be done like this: take newspapers, cut them into thin strips, use a long knitting needle to twist them into tubes. Glue the tubes with PVA glue. Roll a dense ball out of a newspaper; it will be needed for the volume of the chair. Place eight tubes with an asterisk and begin to weave them in a circle with other tubes. Fix the ends with glue. When you feel that the round seat is ready, fold the edges of the figure eight up and weave the back. For convenience, place a ball rolled up from newspaper inside. The tighter your tubes fit together, the tighter the chair will be.
Plastic furniture. Sufficiently durable and in no way inferior to store furniture can be made of plastic. Plastics can be purchased at an art store - self-hardening or for baking. Make a frame of future furniture from thick foil and stick it with rolled plastic. In order for the product to be neat, use a toothpick to roll one layer of plastic to another. Draw small details and patterns and leave to dry completely if it is a self-curing material or bake in the oven at 135-150 C for 30 minutes. After hardening, paint with acrylic paints and varnish the furniture. It is also very convenient to make dishes, accessories and food for Barbie from plastic.
