I thought that for today’s post I would do something different (give everyone a break from plastic canvas) and show how I made food for my Disney fairy dolls out of craft foam.
This is a really fun DIY project that works great for Barbie and similar sized dolls.
- Craft foam (not the thick size)
- Glue–I used craft glue, a glue stick, and hot glue.
- Bottle Caps–or anything that resembles a doll plate
- Hole Punch
- White Puff Paint
- Modge Podge
How To Make Pizza and Breadsticks For Barbie Dolls:
We’ll start with making the pizza slices and breadsticks.
Using brown and yellow craft foam, cut out four triangles–two from brown foam and two from yellow. The brown foam will be the “crust” of the pizza and the yellow will be the “cheese”.
Cut your yellow pieces slightly smaller than the brown ones. That way, once they are glued together, some of the brown pizza “crust” will show.
Next, using a glue stick, glue the yellow foam to the brown:Now your pizza crust has cheese on it!
Cut two more, thin strips of foam. These are going to be the back edges of your pizza slices. Cut them to fit along the back edges of your pizzas.
Glue these small strips to the back side of each pizza–on top of the brown “crust” foam and right behind (but not on top) of the yellow “cheese” foam.
Using your hole punch, cut a few circles out of red craft foam. Then glue these circles onto your pizza slices.Voila!A pepperoni pizza fit for a pixie!
To start, cut small strips of tan craft foam. Again, I didn’t measure these out. I just cut them to what seemed like an appropriate size for a Barbie-sized doll. Using a toothpick (or something similar) make little indentions in your foam strips without cutting all the way through. You don’t want to slice the foam. You just want to make marks in it.
Rub a little glue over your breadsticks then sprinkle with a bit of gold glitter. The glitter makes them look like they’ve been seasoned with parmesan.
For the final step, cover your pizza slices and breadsticks with a thin coat of Modge Podge. The Modge Podge does two things: It fully adheres your foam pieces together and gives your craft foam a protective coating, making it more durable.
How To Make Iced Cinnamon Rolls For Barbie Dolls:
To make your Cinnamon rolls start by cutting a piece of brown craft foam 2″ long and about 1/2″ wide.
- Use your glue stick and smear glue all over your brown foam strip.
Now, roll up your foam strip. You may need to add a dab of hot glue at the end of your roll to hold the foam in place while the other glue sets.
Using white puff paint, “ice” your cinnamon rolls. You don’t have to be precise–just sort of drizzle the paint over the cinnamon roll tops:
This is what your Cinnamon Rolls will look like with their icing:
